Snakey Sue dancing with Bou 2015Snakey Sue is a well known Snake Dancer based in Harwich, Essex, who also has lifelong experience as a Belly Dancer. Sue runs a Snake Sanctuary for people’s unwanted pet snakes and creates an income for their keep by taking them out to events, educational presentations,    photo shoots, etc. Sue  has taken snakes out to meet the public since 1994 and has run the Snake Sanctuary since 1996.

Are you a snake phobic (Ophidiaphobic)? Why suffer? Sue also runs courses for people to  overcome their fears.

 Conquering your fear is so empowering – people have cried with relief and  deep emotion when overcoming their fear and realising how misunderstood  snakes are.

Here is a piece by Andy Naylor, previously ophidiaphobic, being cured of his phobia by Snakey Sue!

Corporate functions, themed events, private bookings, cabaret shows, nightclubs, photos shoots, TV programs, community events, children’s parties, educational visits to schools, fêtes, snake parties, childrens holiday clubs and team-building.

Sue regrets that the sanctuary is full for now and the immediate future, she still has 30 snakes to care for and is not able to take in anymore. She receives 3 to 4 calls and emails per week to take in peoples unwanted snakes so has set up a group page on Facebook called Reptile Rehoming UK  you need to apply to join the group then photos and info of the reptile/s can be placed on there.
