The disenthrall of young vipers

In order to maintain the population of Vipera berus in its natural ecotopes our specialists had disenthralled the young growth of Vipera berus bore by female of working livestock in the summer 2013.

Thus in July, 2013 the Head Herpetologist Alexander Pisarev and the Herpetologist Vasily Kokenko had disenthralled in the vipers' catching stations of Kolyvan, Kragat and Chulym territories 1430 young vipers which had seen the light in the summer 2013.

The disenthralls were done there they had noticed the heightened concentration of the main feed objects of young vipers such as young growth of agile frog (Rana dalmatina) and newborn viviparous lizards (Zootoca vivipara).

We believe that our fosterlings will successfully pass the winter and in 4-5 years they will take part in the increase of Vipera berus population in Novosibirsk region. Photo 1, Photo 2.

The snake catchers team headed by Petr D. Grigoriev captured Vipera berus for serpentarium of Novosibirsk in Kyshtovsky area of Novosibirsk region from 1989. Since that time the snake catchers from Kyshtovka’s had captured for us more than 10`000 vipers.

The colleagues and family are mourning about irreplaceable loss and going to continue the matter of Petr D. Grigoriev in his memory.

This new normative document of quality was labeled LS-002515-130612.

Thus in accordance to the Russian Federal law 61-FZ of Apr 12, 2010 “About Drug Circulation” the unlimited national registration of API Dry venom of Common Viper (Vipera berus) was confirmed. The validity period of previous registration certificate had expired from Dec 29, 2011.

The term of validity of the former license issued by the Federal Service on Surveillance in Healthcare had expired in October  2012.

In accordance to the current regulations the new license spreads on production, storage and distribution of API’s obtained by the methods of isolation from the sources of biological and animal origin. We consider such formulation to be the most corresponding to the work of Siberian Serpentarium. The former license had defined the drug forms premised for production and rated snake venoms as biological drugs.
