Waiting list for cobra

Linda van der Nat

Never before has a lecture been signed up for so fast. Within six hours an evening talk on snakes was fully booked. No wonder: the guest of honour is a king cobra, the longest poisonous snake in the world.

On Wednesday 18 March, study associations from Animal Sciences, Biology and Forest and Nature Management are hosting an evening on snakes. The lecture will be given by Experimental Zoology lecturer Arie Terlouw and Forest and Nature Management student Sterrin Smalbrugge, but the star of  the evening will be Lottie, the four-metre-long king cobra. The venue is the Forum’s largest lecture room, where all 225 seats were taken within six hours of announcing it. There are 100 people on the waiting list.
