Ludwig shortly chose to put this theory to the test. He moved to London in 1987 and his technique for obtaining the snake venom would be to put clingfilm of the top of a shot glass and find the snake to discharge its venom to the glass. Ludwin does this with all of his 18 venomous snakes at different times. He makes different cocktails combining the venom and has developed an astounding immunity to venom. He's now working with scientists in the University of Copenhagen to attempt to create new and enhanced anti-venoms using Ludwin's very own antibodies. Steve Ludwin is. He now lives in England and is infamous for an incredibly strange fascination. He had been raised in Connecticut along with his fascination to reptiles began almost as ancient as he would walk. In the ripe young age of three years old he drew a sketch of his first reptile. But it wasn't until Ludwin had been just six years old and walking home from school one day when he had been bitten by a garter snake, which is non-venomous. Though this snake sting left Ludwin in agony, he did little to dissuade his obsession for snakes. He got his very first pet snake when he was ten years old and it was a boa constrictor. Seeing his son's intense interest continue to grow, he took him to the Miami Serpentarium. Haast had injected himself with snake venom for the majority of his life also claimed he had not been sick since he started the snake venom.
Nonetheless, Ludwin still declares with this particular snake venom. He declares that it gives him more energy, and feeling fitter and younger. A study in March did show that a molecule at snake venom might help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease. Perhaps Ludwin is on to something! Ludwin is rather an extravagant character. He participates in a punk rock group and has written tunes such as Placebo along with Ash. Steve even convinced Ash to grapple using venom. There have been some ups and downs throughout his journey. There was also terrifying episode when he said that,"I stupidly recovered a cocktail made with venom in my rattlesnake, eyelash viper and green tree viper. I did it as part of a wellness test, however, it went horribly wrong. I place the needle to my left wrist, and as soon as the venom went in, I knew it was game over."
