Venomdoc Homepage


My name is Associate Professor Bryan Grieg Fry. Venomous animals, in all their glorious shapes and sizes, have been the abiding passion of my life. Doing what I do is literally all I have ever wanted to do.  This is my childhood dream come true. When people ask me why I do this, I often reply ‘I am obeying the inscrutable exhortations of my inner-most soul, and my mandate also includes crocodiles’. While my research has significant medical implications, the end of the day, it is all just a grand excuse to keep playing with these magnificent creatures!

It has been a long slog to get here.  Of course, hard work always pays off. I get to spend the vast majority of my time travelling, up to ten months in a single year sometimes.  My work takes me literally from pole to pole, from Norway to Antarctica and all points in-between whether it be the baking heat of the Australian channel country or the dank and steamy nights of the Amazon. I have successfully led expeditions to almost 40 countries and half the US States (some of which are bizarre little countries in their own right!), spread across every continent, targeting every group of venomous animals including such disparate creatures as anemones, centipedes, insects, fish, frogs, lizards, jellyfish, octopuses, salamanders, slow lorises, scorpions, spiders, snakes and even venomous sharks.
