Jonathan Leeming is a unique individual. Born in England in 1970, he was fortunate to have been bought up in a family who encouraged an understanding and appreciation of all aspects of the natural world. Fascinated by those creatures that bite and sting, his journey through a world that so many fear yet few understand began. In 2003, he wrote Scorpions of southern Africa, which gave him the leverage and a platform to be seen and heard. Jonathan quickly became the venomous animal go-to-guy. He has written 9 books, spoken in 11 countries on subject such as antivenom management, snakebite, scorpion stings, spider bite, risk assessment and first aid.
