Again, my main point is just to be careful what you post. There is nothing wrong with warning people about the risks of owning a hognose snake. I warn of this very same thing when I sell to newbies. I just think one may read the post in question and believe that hognose snakes have some kind of control of their "venom" and that they may be injected full of it if they are penetrated by their "fangs" that's all. I also just wanted to make a point that if it is clasified as a venom and if one may consider them to have fangs, neither are intened as a typical venomous defence mechanism as in most venomous snakes, front or rear fanged.
I don't want to call anyone stupid and God knows I am not a know it all. I do know if kingsnake, snake shows, or fedex classified hognose snakes under rear fanged venomous snake section, none of us would be happy about it.
