Between what happened to those two poor Canadian boys recently, all of the laws and legislature that herping has had to face in the last decade, and the media's ignorance when it comes to reptiles as a whole (including STUPID with a capital S movies, news et cetera), do you guys ever worry about a hognose bite hitting the news?

I don't want to get into a "are hogs venomous or nonvenomous" debate here but, can you imagine what would happen if the media caught wind of an ugly hognose bite reaction? Of course, there will be no logic or education involved on "their" part and we will be villainized.

Do you worry about it? Do you query potential customers about the fact that they're rear fanged? Just want some input. Thanks.

I got a few ball pythons and a metri f***ton of colubrids.
