Photo By Audrey Smith

  • Title: Extracting Venom From An Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake
  • State/Province/Region: Florida
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Daytona Beach
  • Nearest Town: Deland
  • Brief Directions: From Interstate 95 in Daytona Beach, take US92 west about ten miles, into Deland. On the south side of the road is the sign for the Reptile Discovery Center and Serpentarium, on Big John Drive.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Yellow rattlesnake venom drips down the sides of the glass vial, collecting in the bottom, while the herpetologist observes his largest eastern diamondback rattlesnake. When the collection process is complete, the liquid venom will be converted to a powder form, and sold by the ounce to antivenin-manufacturing companies who make the antivenoms that treat venomous snakebites.
  • Gear: Canon 40D, 17-85mm IS USM f/5.6 lens, at 41mm, flash
