Guest Book Highlights

January 19, 2017 "Dr. Haast was a wonderful human being. I hope he is in heaven today. During the 1950's I remember many TV News broadcasts following the Dr's car through traffic with a police escort on his way to inject some suffering soul with some of his own blood as an antidote for a poisonous snake bite. His research saved untold thousands of lives." - Joseph Papierz Jr (Deerfield Beach, FL)
November 06, 2015 "I remember Mr. Haast saying "No one should fear death, it's such a relief" (after he'd been being bitten by a Krait).
He was a fabulous man. He took my fascination of snakes where I would never have taken it. I still run from Garter snakes but my fascination of them still remains thanks to you Sir, (especially the deadlier species).
God Bless Your Soul Sir.
Charles W. Sutton, US Navy-Retired" - Charles Sutton (Seattle, WA)

September 02, 2015 "Also as a child growing up in Miami, every year in the 60's-70's a school field trip to see Bill at the serpentarium. His talks and demonstrations were a master class on the true nature and value of venomous snakes. His educational and life saving contributions to the world are unequaled due to his pioneering work-labor of love handling the deadliest reptiles known. It was a privilege to watch, learn from and talk with him." - Nick Z (Sebastian, FL)
