have been to london twice, never herped tho haha. So far my fav places to herp have been costa rica and the usa...but nothing has come close to Africa! Nov/Dec/Jan is the ultimate herping time...love it here. Had a guy from london here in dec doing an eco-tour i was filming, he had a blast! They run an intensive 10 day reptile expedition here in south africa once a year for a select number of people. They also get a snake handleing course so they are actualy the ones catching the snakes..wich included spitting cobras, puff adders, pythons, black mamba...etc etc...was quite the experience for them. The one guy had never even held a snake! the rest were herpetologists tho. Was supposed to maybe head to malyasia this year for herping and filmin i the jungles there but not happening. Thailan should be a blast!
