BBC: Wild Japan | Old Woman Is Master Sea Snake Catcher


Duncan Parker, camera assistant.

After meeting 72-year old Setsuko and Yoko I looked forward to seeing how they would go about catching one of the world’s most venomous snakes. Sea snakes are supposedly very docile and have very small mouths so can only bite you between your hands and feet. However if you do get bitten and they inject their venom you are dead in 20 minutes! David made sure we had all the necessary precautions, including wearing rubber gloves and thick wellington boots, which made our hunters chuckle.
