This week we are talking venom with the Director of the Kentucky Reptile Zoo, Kristen Wiley! The Kentucky Reptile Zoo is owned and operation by Kristen and her husband, Jim Harrison, and is home to one of the largest venomous reptile collections in North America. 

In the episode, Kristen discusses a day in the life at the zoo including the daily maintenance and extractions of the venomous snakes. We also discuss what the extracted venom is used for, keeping venomous animals in the private sector and also the mindset one needs in order to successfully work with deadly animals.
