13 The snakes of South Kensington | #NHM_Live

This week’s #NHM_Live featured the snakes of our collections in South Kensington, SW7. Joining host Alison Shean was Jeff Streicher, Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles, who showed off some of the serpent specimens and shared with us fascinating facts including what it is – exactly – that makes a snake a snake.

This was the final episode of #NHM_Live in this current series, but we will be back for a new series soon. In the meantime catch up with all the episodes and leave us review in iTunes. To hear more about our collections and the new episodes in the next series, be sure to follow @NHM_London on Twitter.

    Could you tell me how are the snakes killed before putting in the preserving fluid, alcohol or formalin? Also do you have to inject the fluid into the specimen in order to preserve it?
