    Snake catchers at work in South Africa.

  • Description

    Simonstown, South Africa.

    Various shots of snake catchers at Simonstown, South Africa, walking through bushes catching snakes. They work with large sticks. Some good close up shots of the snakes and the men catching them. The men put snakes in large cages - shots of cages full of snakes. Several good close up shots of the fangs with poison dripping - quite painful watch. More shots of the men walking across countryside catching snakes.

    Information found in the old record - Cuts 47/10.
