We went to MToxins Venom Lab LLC in Oshkosh, WI today to take a tour. They have around 580 poisonous critters on site out of about 600 total. They extract venom for medical use. I’m not a big snake person, but was quite impressed by the knowledge and educational display. We even watched them extract snake venom.
They are one of 9 centers world wide that does this work to obtain the extracts needed to produce medical products like anti-venom to save lives.
They have a few other entertaining animals there, several types of birds, tortoise and an owl. Well worth a visit.
Enjoy a few photos and videos.
