Snake milkers spend their days pushing snakes (certain types only) into a plastic container to extract or milk the snake. Snake venom (poison) can be used for many things, but the most important is its use in medical research or to produce "antivenom."
Even though safety measures are applied, each milking process is highly dangerous. The rate of milkers who haven’t been bitten on the job is surprisingly low.
Average annual salary: $30,000
Even though safety equipment is used, this job still makes you deal with lethal tools and requires you to carry heavy materials and work at jaw-dropping heights. Another danger comes from steel beams or walls collapsing on workers.
Average annual salary: $31,000 to $70,000
