SOUNDBITE: (English), Harold de Pomyers, CEO, Latoxan "The species we are housing here coming from all over the world, and anti-venom manufacturers are trying to develop regional anti-venom products, and we need to cover these many different species." 11.

SOUNDBITE: (English), Harold de Pomyers, CEO, Latoxan "The quantities we are getting from milking are very small and accordingly the prices may seem very expensive. Prices of venoms, of snake venoms, range from about 500 Euros ($650 USD), to 4000 Euros, ($5,200 USD) per gram (0.03 ounces) and the price of the scorpions range from between 10,000 Euros ($13,000 USD) per gram (0.03 ounces) and 30,000 Euros ($39,000 USD)." 17.

Close of scorpion venom being extracted Paris, France, September 27, 2012 27. SOUNDBITE: (English), Professor Max Goyffon, biochemist & immunologist, Mus�um National d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, " Venom potential is huge. We have calculated than in snake venom, or precisely in scorpion venom, we can find few hundred unknown different toxins. We only know one or two per cent of them. There is about 2000 different species of scorpions, if you multiply these 2000 species by hundreds toxins, you will get million of substances to analysed and to study. This is a huge potential. Valence, France, October 11, 2012 28. Various of laboratory worker pouring venom into storage jar 29. Close of jar being sealed and put in cupboard LEADIN The number of companies producing venom for antidotes has shrunk so drastically, that demand is pushing up its value. The venom is used as to combat lethal snake and insect bites, but now doctors believe it may hold the key to understanding and treating other illnesses. STORYLINE : This Puff Adder is inside Latoxan, France's biggest producer of venom. It's also one of the deadliest snakes in the world. Its bite releases a slow acting cytotoxic venom. It causes severe tissue damage, and if it remains untreated it can spread, causing gangrene and secondary infections which can result in loss of fingers and limbs. It can cause circulatory collapse and renal failure, which can result in death. This Puff Adder is just one of hundreds of snakes from seventy different species that are kept at this high security laboratory in Valence in south eastern France.

To the treehuggers and snowflakes... Snakes prefer confined dark spaces. The only reason that they wander in the wild is to regulate body heat and find food. If they can get that within their cages it's better for them, they dont like moving too much because they are cold blooded animal .. Trust me i live in the equator and find snakes everywhere,not like you guys who live in the northern hemisphere and barely see any snakes in the wild..

Pressing the venom glands contaminates the venom with gland tissue. Handling snakes with your hands is foolish. Professionals use restraint tubes, which are safer and more humane. These guys seem to be a mix of modern sterile technique and backwoods sloppiness. I cannot help but wonder if this is not somewhat faked. I speak as a retired zoo herpetologist.

Pretty cool that they live in climate controlled environments, dont have to hunt for food or risk starvation. All they have to do is give up a little Snake Juice. Oh and they dont have to worry about a Bald Eagle snatching them up or a coyote biting their heads off. Jeez people. Quit crying about them living "rough" in climate controlled tupperware. I promise they dont mind.

+Jonas Löfkvist you're a dumbass, assuming from your name you live in northern europe where there are barely any snakes, so i assume you know nothing about snakes Snakes prefer to live in confined area, the only reason they wander out is to find food and to regulate body heat.. And no they dont travel long distance.. Get your facts before commenting..

Jonas Löfkvist why would we be eaten by lions
Jonas Löfkvist (3 месяца назад)
So, if I were to put your son or daughter in a small box and put it there for their entire life, it would be okay just as long as I kept a reasonable temperature in the box and kept them from being eaten by a lion? Jeez, your logic really makes sense there.... Snakes are animals that in the wild often keep big territories and travel long distances during their life span. To rob them of this natural behaviour and instinct, put them in a box smaller than their own body length, and justify it by simply saying its fine because they "dont have to worry about a bald eagle snatching them" is just plain ignorant and it clearly shows that you have no idea what your talking about. Stop spreading dumb uneducated crap on the internet.

Snakes (such as the lachesis muta seen in this video) are very sensitive to stressful environments and don't live long when they are in captivity. Every single animal will always feel better and thrive in its natural environment (or at least in a better set up). Streching, moving is also important for their wellbeing. This is outright exploitation just for a profit.

“Keeping them in small spaces is animal cruelty” No you retards, snakes PREFER small/dark spaces because it makes them feel secure!! These snakes are also very well taken care of and venom extraction doesn’t harm them at all. The only thing the may happen is a bit of irritation or annoyance. Snakes are smart, and they realize that biting a cup doesn’t harm them, so they do it for as much as they can to eventually get over it. DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

What sort of life are these poor animals even living? Do you even care about the environment that they are living in? Like seriously I know they are venomous but even venomous animals don’t deserve to be living in that sort of condition. Also I hate how they were trying to squeeze out as much venom as they could get from one snake. Treat the animals better if all they are going to be used for is venom extraction. Common sense. There are other people out there who give these kinds of snakes a good home and a good life. You people just don’t care.

Egg Fella (10 месяцев назад)
They don't live in those crates, those are temporary holding for the snakes during milking. Each snake would actually live in its own enclosure
Egg Fella (11 месяцев назад)
They don't "squeeze" the venom out. The milking process is entirely voluntary and an instinctual reaction. They may seem to be aggressively holding the snake, but the holding is more firm than anything. The process in no way harms or endangers the snake. The snakes don't live in those crates either. Those are temporary holdings for the snakes that are about to be milked. Not to mention snakes enjoy dark warmed enclosed spaces. The venom will help produce millions of dollars worth of anti venom that will save hundreds of thousands of lives

Andy Gullion, I guess some people don't see the value of a human life only the lives of every other species on the planet. Some of them were goin' on about the amount of money that's made per gram. I would like to know how much yield there is from each snake on average. Then consider the facility that has to be paid for, lights kept on and all of that, now think about how much those handlers should earn for the incredibly dangerous job they do every day and last but not least, how about some profit for the guy who answers for every liability involved. Or is it wrong for a business owner, vital service provider and risk taker to earn a little bit? OK...rant over...I'll let myself out. .................................PEACE!!

Should be subsidized by government to keep the cost down. Insects like scorpion populations can breed in large numbers. How do these places crumbs up business? If they are milking venomous animals & insects for profit yet claim to be Lifesavers who knows what they are capable. Some are well intended others profit driven.

It saddens me so much to see in what conditions these magnificent snakes are being kept. Surely as the biggest venom producer in the world that earns between €10.000 - €30.000 per grams of venom you can afford proper tanks so why keep them in plastic boxes 24/7? Oh right, because it's all about earning big cash on extracting venom and not wanting to lose on providing the snakes with proper enclosures. Tbh I see no difference between letting snakes live out their lives in tiny plastic boxes and holding chickens in tiny cages for mass egg production not to mention the stress these snakes are under making them link humans to venom milking only :(

nothing. The venom has to enter the blood stream directly for it to work. If a person drinking venom has a cut in the mouth or a bleeding ulcer in digestive tract only then the venom would work (at least that is the theory).

His Supreme Clarkson-ness (7 месяцев назад)
Ammar Akbar most snake venom is complex protein, which gets broken down by your digestive system in the same way as most other protein. Unless you have an ulcer, you'll be fine. No effect at all.
