I don't know of any "reputable"venomoid sellers but there are usually quite a few venomoids listed in the classifieds(or at least were a few months ago when I was looking for other things). I will say, however, that more of the other posters will take your post more seriously if you typed your words instead of abbreviating them with numbers. A lot of posters(not so much here due to opinions) come from a scientific background and expect complete sentences and words if not proper grammar and spelling. That said, before getting a venomoid, please ask yourself why. If it's so you can safely handle the snake ask(without asking opinions)courteously on the venomous forum how dangerous a venomoid can be-one poster(I forget his name but when he talks people listen) knows of cases of near death from dry and/or venomoid bites. Puncture wounds are difficult to clean. Now add that to the depth of, say, a large Gaboon viper fang and the small size of the hole. It makes a wound nearly impossible to clean, and a wonderful place for some nasty infections to begin-these infections are what caused the near death I mentioned. My opinion has almost nothing to do with true cruelty, other than if you want a cobra and can care for it properly then get a cobra, but don't try to turn it into a corn snake with a big head. Nonvenomous snakes come in a lot of shapes and colors, and most venomous snakes have some nonvenomous snake that looks something like them-other than size a rough green snake looks a lot like a green mamba. Why not get a natural look alike instead of making one?
