To say a venomoid snake wont like to be handled anymore than a hot snake is pretty stupid really. The fact that a snake is venomous or not has nothing to do with its preferance to being handled. My ATB is non venomous and hates being handled.
A venomous snake is in my opinion perfectly capable of being tamed to the point of holding. I personally wouldnt do it but the fact that they carry venom makes no difference to the snake being tolerant to handling.

And keep beating the horse..its not quite dead yet.
