Gloucester man Tom Charlton visits South East Asia each year to track venomous snakes and capture them on camera.
Tom, 23, knows his hobby is quirky.
But not only does he love snakes enough to dedicate his spare time to discovering more of them – he also has about 45 of his own in his house, which he feeds pre-killed frozen mice to.
He said: “I’ve been keeping snakes since I was nine.
“My first snake was a red-sided garter snake which I got after I saw it in a local reptile shop.
“I built up quite a large collection after that.
“I took my first trip abroad when I was 17. That was to Borneo. I’ve been abroad every year since then, sometimes for two weeks and sometime for four months.
“The sole purpose is to find snakes and photograph them, and my main passion are South East Asian venomous species.”
