Hi there, could someone please recommend gloves to protect me from bites when handling venomous snakes? I have had a look at the Haxarmor glover but prized at $300 its a bit too pricy for me.

Why do you need gloves?

Get proper venomous handling training and you won’t need the gloves, they restrict your movement too much and actually make it more dangerous :) not that you should be handling them anyway

They don’t even protect you from bites 100% they just lower the risk, usually they have chainmail or Kevlar on the inside, a lucky bite will go straight through, and probably snap the fang off
