A great day was had with eight Brighton College Year 9 pupils at Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute’s Snake Farm in Bangkok. The day started with pupils learning how to classify living organisms and find out how various snake species are adapted to their habitats.
This was followed by pupils watching the snake handlers milk banded krait for their venom, before studying how anti-venom and vaccines work and why the Red Cross Centre is so important.
The highlight of the day was the snake show, where the highly trained snake handlers held a multitude of venomous and non-venomous snakes and demonstrated their various adaptations. Some of the pupils were even brave enough to hold a yellow python at the end of the show.
