The topic of whether people should free handle snakes is one of the hottest topics polarizing people on both sides of the argument. In this video I discuss handling and free handling with Chandler from Chandlers Wild Life and I give my own opinion at the end of the video.
Check out Chandler Channel CHANDLERS WILD LIFE




  • The reality/ánd irony of handling venomous snakes is: Dingo has a bigger chance to get MURDERED on his South African farm - than what 'snake-handeling' poses to him!! (He/or others - might not like me saying this... But it's a fact)!!

  • I like Chandler, but I feel he lets the snakes get too close and is in constant mortal danger... Completely unnecessarily sometimes. It just freaks me out... But if he's comfortable, I guess he knows better than I could.

  • Ok I love snakes but I will never go and handle a venomous snake because I have no experience with that animal and the animals want to be left alone so I will leave it to the professionals and admire the animals from a safe distance even though i love them there better off without me trying to pick them up

  • I had left comment about his channel. Dingo I like way you handle snakes what you do. You get them out let them tire out. You don’t just straight to and pick up. Like I never am nervous watching your channel. It made me in love with snakes. But I am not gonna like I posted about chandlers channel. I never see gloves it straight picking up. Kissing snake. I seen one king cobra they put in wild starting face to face with him. I do think he will get bitten. He does not do the safety procedures like you. I can tell you been doing it for 20 plus years and he is new. Just like you black mamba strike. I think he will run into an encounter it will make him have more respect for snakes. I am not saying he doesn’t have respect, but I just am nervous. Even if born in captivity they are still wild and made to be in wild.

Those people are the critics that don't know what they are talking about. They are what they call the wannabe chiefs. You are a professional at what you do and your darn good at it!! Keep up the great work and fantastic videos. 🥰👍

  • Thor and Kevin are the best most well behaved snakes ever. This makes me happy to see these two men together as well. These guys definitely need to hang out. Also, the method of handling really doesn't matter. If you make the snake uncomfortable, the snake will destroy you. They can tell when you are scared. So DO NOT make them feel scared.

  • Dingo, Chandler, never mind the critics! Most people only criticize others to cover up their own inadequacies so when they talk bad about you it’s motivated by jealousy. Also I have watched you both and I see that you know how to read the animals and their body language BUT I also see that these snakes are reading your body language and your moods. So when you handle them the way you are comfortable and you are relaxed the snake can see and feel that and they relax. Loved this video with you both!! Keep up the great work mates and stay safe, stay strong!!!

  • Honestly, you should handle wild animals and *venomous* snakes the way *YOU* feel comfortable. Everyone handles them differently. Some people never *free handle* snakes and some people always *free handle* .. Its whatever makes the person actually handling the snake comfortable, not the one watching

  • I think this is extremely important to talk about in a level headed way. I've watched both of you guys. I'm well into my 30's. So for me, I understand certain things now that I definitely didn't understand when I was younger. As far as I'm concerned.. This isn't something I personally do, but I understand the passion behind. So, If these are things you truly understand and you put the work in.. You should be able to do what you want. If this is something you don't agree with... Then don't do it. I also think that the media needs to get away from making the animal the "villain" in bite situations. That's Not helping the animals. And it's making these conversations more difficult.

  • l dont have venomous but if l did l know l would freehandle some, it just about reading body language and knowing your snakes. l know that is how l work with my non venomous, they may not kill you if they bite but why get bitten at all if you do the right thing by them and understand them first.

  • Dingo, I want to thank both you and Chandler. I have had a terrible fear of snakes since I was a small child. I have a 3 year old daughter and have wanted to raise her to face her fears. About 6 months ago I made the decision to try to overcome my fear of snakes. I began watching FIstart videos about snakes and even held a baby corn snake for about 60 seconds at a local pet shop. Two months ago I stumbled upon Chandler’s channel and your channel. They both have been so incredibly helpful in dealing with my fear. Thank you both for the work that you are doing! I am still have some fear of snakes but am slowly becoming more and more comfortable with them. God bless, Dan.

  • I’m glad you said not everyone handles them the right way. I agree with most animal rights. Don’t believe we should keep whales in captivity. Considering how large and much room they really need. Now other animals are different what are the people doing with them. Is it for breeding to help bring them back from the brink of extinction. Is that they were injured and would have died. Is it they were rescued from someone that was mistreating them are collecting them for no reason and now they can’t go back to the Wild.
