Born to be Wild heads to Camarines Sur to extract venom from cobras
February 16, 2012 television
This Wednesday night in GMA-7’s environment and wildlife program, join resident veterinarian Doc Nielsen Donato and Kiko Rustia for another adventure on Born to be Wild.
Last week, Doc Nielsen’s team headed to Camarines Sur to catch Philippine cobras for venom extraction, which will be used for the production of anti-venom by the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM). Doc Nielsen and a team of extractors collected five cobras on their first day. But not a milliliter of venom was extracted and a cobra suddenly spits venom in front of the team!
Meanwhile, Kiko Rustia continues to discover the blue hole of Romblon. On day one, he and his team were welcomed by unfriendly waves and the first dive had to be aborted. But this did not stop the team from pursuing their goal–to confirm if indeed a blue hole exists in the province of Romblon.
Their second day was greeted by calmer waters and good diving weather. Kiko and the team plunge into the opportunity. Underwater, the team reaches a big and deep opening on the ocean floor. Have they reached the mouth of the blue hole?
Find out this week as the Venom Etraction and Blue Hole series continue on GMA-7’s Born to be Wild, Wednesday night after Saksi.
