In the book "Living Snakes of the World in Color", author John M Mehrtens states (in the entry for Gaboon Vipers) "It should be noted that none of the large Bitis species should be kept in top-opening cages." Unfortunately, he does not state why. I imagine it is because it is harder to lift them safely out of the cage on hooks without being in striking range.
