When a reptile handing show is needed.

In Melbourne and elsewhere in Victoria, one person that can sometimes be in demand is a snake handler. With all local species being venomous and most also potentially dangerous, it is important that handling of reptiles and snakes in particular be left to the experts. There are a number of accredited snake handers and snake handling courses on offer these days, but not all are experienced. In Melbourne, the best known snake handler is Raymond Hoser and as a result he is the only person in Australia who actually owns a registered trademark for the words snake handler, the trademark being for a logo with the word and himself holding no less than 14 deadly venomous snakes in his bare hands. A serial trademark bootlegger did attempt to register a words trademark for snake handler or the single word cariant, namely snakehandler, but he was refused registration by the trademarks office for several reasons. He was asked to substantiate his claim that he was in fact a snake handler, but was unable to do so as he only picked up snakes with brutal metal tongs. Snake handler Raymond Hoser, is also known as Australia's snake man and the snakes buster, the latter title being a derivative of his business name that he has traded under for many years. As a licenced snake handler, Raymond Hoser has been on global TV shows showing his skills as Australia's best reptile handler. besides being s snake handler, Hoser's expertise with reptiles is unrivalled, and includes hundreds of scientific papers and books and the title of having named more species and genera of snakes than anyone else in the last 100 years! As a reptile handler and expert, the snake man is on call all the time to educate others about reptiles, frogs and other wildlife and he does this in wildlife displays, reptile shows and even in childrens reptile parties, this being a concept he invented in the late 1960's and something he's been doing ever since. It was for that reason he even got the registered trademark for reptile parties. As a snake handler, Hoser is on call daily to remove deadly snakes from houses and other business to save the lives of both the affected people and the affected snakes.

. Notwithstanding Hoser's stellar career with reptiles spanning more than 40 years, he finds himself in the post 2000 period under attack from inexperienced imitators seeking to take his business and reputation by unethical means. Even more scandalous has been the cooperation of corrupt ex-cops and others in their ruthless attack, not just on the snake man, but on Australia's uniquie wildlife in a manner that puts both species at risk and has already caused people's lives to be lost as a result of their misconduct and dissemination of wrong and dangerous ninformation.
