ABSTRACT
Worrell, Eric (1924-1987) was an Australian naturalist who established the Australian Eeptile Park in Gos-ford, New South Wales, Australia, in 1960. The park houses Australia's largest collection of native reptiles. Many of the poisonous snakes housed at the park are regularly milked (have their venom extracted) and the venom is sent to the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories. The venom is used in the manufacture of antivenins, antidotes for treating poisonous snakebites.
