African Snakebite Institute
Johan Marais has devoted most of his life to his favourite hobby – reptiles. He grew up in Montclair, Durban where common reptiles like the Brown House Snake, Herald or Red-lipped Snake, Spotted Bush Snake, Tropical House Gecko and Southern Tree Agama were encountered regularly from a very young age. School holidays were often spent on family farms in Grootvlei, Ermelo and Vryburg where encounters with dangerous snakes invariably resulted in one of the adults killing the snake.
