Hi everybody, my name is Nazri but among some they may know me more by my nickname "Uncleherp"......

Since I was young I was very much interested in animals. I have worked with animals before at the Zoo and I myself keep pets at home. However, for the past few years my interested was into reptiles and exotic animals. To know more I invite you all to my webpage uncleherp.webs.com

Hi everybody...

Thanks for the warm welcome. It's been a while I have not been active in forums both in Malaysia or abroad. Hope to make a comeback.

Hey Alicia, fancy having you in this forum.... Any more offers on reptile stuffs at your new place???

Mia_Katz.... Thanks. I suppose you have seen my webpage...

Adamyala/Zai.... Snakes are just like other animals. I know a lot of people are afraid of snakes. This is due to the fact that most people do not understand snakes or reptiles and the myths and stories passed by our elders does not help either. However if you get close to these snakes and learn more about them, they could be as interesting as your cats and dogs.

Hello UncleHerp,

Welcome to PetFinder! Seems like some forumners already know you, you must be a popular guy

We look forward to learning more on exotic animals from you. Please feel free to post up some nice pictures of your pets here and at our main PetFinder.my site.

Hi there Andy...

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'm not popular but it seems that "birds of a feather flock together". It's forums like this that gathers all the animal lovers no matter what sort of animals there are into. I have been in a lot of animal forums in Malaysia and abroad. It was just that since late last year I have been a bit dormant (hibernating???). Now, I would like to be on a roll again.

Some may know my nickname if they have read Petster Magazine last year where I have written several articles for them. I will post some photos later but if anybody interested to see some of the photos I have, please visit my webpage uncleherp.webs.com

See ya...

Uncleherp,
how to overcome this ? I mean 'fear of snakes'. I wish to be brave enough to hold a snake one day, take pictures of me with it for my album...and later ...my anak and cucu could show to their friends and say see..my grandma used to be so afraid of snakes, but not anymore ...

Hmmmm...I can understand the sense of fear in not just you but a lot of other people worldwide. This is Ophidiophobia.

The main thing that I would do is to desensitize the person of his/her fear of snakes.
1. Go to the zoo or reptile zoos and try to stand close to the exhibit and get use to the slithering behaviour of snakes.

2. Try to go as near as possible to photography sessions involving snakes. But don't touch them yet.

3. Observe how others act when they hold snakes for the first time.

4. Read about snakes and their basic behaviours.

5. Get the courage and try out the photography sessions....

6. And finally, get to know friends who have snakes and try to handle them....

You must have the basic knowledge of reptile behaviour as the main reason why people are afraid of snakes is misconception that snakes will bite and they are slimy. Try holding a snake and you'll see that all these are not exactly true. However, I will not nrecommend you to hold any snake except that is pets to your friend...

Good Luck...

Mia_Katz...

Unfortunately I don't do shows.

My involvement in herpetology is more to research and writing of articles, journals and books. You can read some of my articles in Petster Magazines published last year. I have written books but it seems that I could not get publishers to print them as there are not much demand for books like it. However, I do offer these books for printing if anybody is interested to read them. Currently I have 2 books "Memelihara Haiwan Eksotik" (In BM) and "UncleHerp's Herping Guide" (for those who loves to go and look for snakes)...
