Venomous snakes
More information about this animal

Here at Urban Paws UK, we provide a range of venomous snakes. The snakes are transported and handled by a team of experts.

Animal acting ability

We work closely with highly experienced and specialised trainers. They carry their own licence in accordance with the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976. We can provide Cobras and other venomous snakes to be present on set as well as snakes that are trained to display certain behaviours and/or tricks. All of our exotic animals are from zoos and private collections. We only work with animals that are ethically sourced and cared for, whilst working within the animal welfare guidelines.

When working with our venomous snakes there are a lot of precautions set in place. We feel it is important to remind casting agents that they are dangerous animals. Actors cannot get hands-on with them but can be composited into scenes during post-production. There will always be at least three specialised handlers accompanying the snakes depending on the age and size of the animal.

Venomous snakes in media

Venomous snakes are used and represented heavily in movies over the years. They are an amazing animal to work with as they’re so beautiful and they will really grab that “Wow” factor for any production.
