Dr. Kevin Wright provided veterinary care throughout the Phoenix, Arizona, metropolitan area with his mobile practice, Wright Bird & Exotic Pet House Calls.* In the first year this specialty was offered (2010), Dr. Wright became a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners specializing in Reptile and Amphibian Practice. In 2008 Dr. Wright was named the Exotic DVM of the Year. In 2009 and 2012 he was awarded Exotics Speaker of the Year by the North American Veterinary Conference. Kevin earned his DVM from the University of Florida. He then worked in private practice for a couple of years, before completing a residency in zoological medicine at the Philadelphia Zoo and the University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Wright then served as the veterinarian and curator for the amphibian and reptile collection at the Philadelphia Zoo. In 1999, he went to work for The Phoenix Zoo, but returned to private practice in 2005. He co-founded Arizona Exotic Animal Hospital in 2007 and sold his interest in summer of 2012 to open his mobile bird & exotic pet practice. Dr. Wright is the co-author of Amphibian Medicine and Captive Husbandry. He has also contributed chapters to many other texts, and has written over 150 articles related to zoological medicine for both professional and lay audiences.

>> Kevin Wright: NO, I DIDN'T BRING ONE.SAFE AT THE ZOO TONIGHT.
...
>> Kevin: HE YEAH, THE FEAR WITH RATTLESNAKES IS REALLY MISPLACED.
...
>> Kevin: A LOT OF THE BITES IN ARIZONA ARE FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE MAYBE HIKING, CLIMBING, PUTTING THEIR HAND UP ON A ROCK SHELF AND THERE IS A SNAKE THERE THAT IT WAS ITS HOME AND YOU'RE INVADING ITS SPACE.HOWEVER, IF YOU LOOK AT THE STATISTICS, THE MAJORITY OF SNAKEBITES IN ARIZONA AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE ACTUALLY CAUSED BY MEN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 15 AND 40 WHO USUALLY ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL GETTING UP THE COURAGE TO PLAY WITH A SNAKE THAT SHOULD NEVER BE PLAYED WITH.
>> Rich: I GUESS IT IS A SELF-CORRECTING THING.
>> Kevin: EVENTUALLY, WEEDS OUT THE INTREPID.
...
>> Kevin: THE MAJORITY SNAKE/HUMAN INTERACTION IS ON THE INTERFACE OF THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT, THE SUBURBAN ENVIRONMENT AND THEN ENCROACHING OUT INTO THE WILDERNESS.IF YOU LOOK AT THE HOT SPOTS IN THE VALLEY, YOU HAVE A LOT OF DEVELOPMENT IN THE NORTHEAST, THAT'S WHERE A LOT OF THE REMOVALS ARE.SAME OUT TOWARD THE EAST, YOU TAKE THE SUPERSTITION OUT AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS OUT IN APACHE JUNCTION.WHAT HAPPENS IS THE SAME HABITAT THAT'S GREAT FOR THE RATTLESNAKES IS IDEAL FOR DEVELOPERS.A DEVELOPMENT MAY BE PUT UP AND THERE MAY BE SNAKES THAT HAVE LIVED THERE ALL OF THEIR LIVES AND THEIR LIVES CAN BE 10, 15 YEARS OR MORE.SO, THEY COME OUT ONE WINTER FROM THEIR DEN LOOKING FOR A SPRING WARM-UP AND THERE IS A GOLF COURSE WHERE IT USED TO BE A NICE ROCKY WASH WHERE THEY FED ON RATS AND OTHER THINGS.
...
>> Kevin: WELL, SNAKE PROOFING THE YARD IS MORE OF AN ART THAN A SCIENCE.BASICALLY, YOU WANT TO MAKE YOUR YARD AN UNFRIENDLY PLACE FOR A SNAKE TO LIVE.IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF LOW-LYING SHRUBS, HOLES IN THE GROUND, HOLES THAT GO UNDERNEATH THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR HOUSE, SNAKES ARE GOING TO FIND THOSE IDEAL PLACES TO LIVE.AS WILL THINGS LIKE MICE AND RATS AND VERMIN THAT THE SNAKES FEED UPON.SO, CLEAN UP YOUR YARD.SEAL THE HOLES UNDER YOUR HOUSE.IF YOU DO HAVE SHRUBS, KEEP THEM AT LEAST 10, 15 FEET AWAY FROM THE WALLS.
...
>> Kevin: WELL, A SNAKE WON'T CHASE YOU.SO, YOU CAN STAY STILL AND STAY AT A CAUTIOUS DISTANCE.I DON'T ADVISE YOU TO RUN BECAUSE THE CHANCES ARE YOU'LL HURT YOURSELF RUNNING AWAY OUT IN THE DESERT BUT IF YOU SEE A SNAKE, JUST STOP, KEEP ABOUT 10, 15 FEET DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND IT AND YOU CAN WATCH THEM GO ON ABOUT THEIR LIVES.THEY'RE REALLY MAGNIFICENT TO SEE A WESTERN DIAMONDBACK, STRETCHED OUT ACROSS A DESERT WASH AT SUNSET IS REALLY A BEAUTIFUL THING.
...
>> Kevin: THE ANTIVENOM, WE'RE STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF WHEN WYETH'S BACKED OFF OF MAKING THEIR HORSE SERUM.THEY DID THAT BECAUSE THERE WAS THE PREDICTION OF A LOT OF MONOCLONAL ANTIVENOMS GOING OUT THERE.THEY DECIDED NOT TO COMPETE.UNFORTUNATELY, THOSE OTHER ANTIVENOMS HAVEN'T MATERIALIZED AT A COST-EFFECTIVE LEVEL SO WYETH HAS HAD TO CRANK BACK UP.MOST OF THE LOCAL HOSPITALS DO HAVE SUFFICIENT STORES BUT IT IS GOING TO BE PRETTY COSTLY IF YOU GET A BITE.MY BEST RECOMMENDATION IS AVOID IT.
