Summary
Catching dangerous snakes for research, or removing them from people's property, is a bit like disarming a bomb: one wrong move can cost you your life. In this episode, Dr. Brady Barr explores technologies that could make his job safer, such as robots similar to those used in bomb disposal. He delves into the world of robotics, from the depths of Washington, D.C.'s sewers to a state-of-the-art robotic arm. His ultimate "Snakebot" pairs the prosthetic limb with a bomb disposal robot platform. Dr. Barr heads to South Africa where he tests out his new gadget on two of the most intimidating snakes in the world: the huge African rock python and the agile and toxic black mamba
