This two day course hosted in partnership with the Reptile Preservation Institute reviews and expands upon the concepts and techniques taught in Level 1 by diving deeper into classroom topics like advanced venom toxinology, captive husbandry, first aid in a captive setting, emergency preparedness, and more; with hands-on techniques in a captive setting at two different professional facilities.
