I really think I have made my point whether it sunk in or not. If not here it is. Hognose snakes are harmless, they should not be classifies with other dangerouse species, and allergic reactions can be compared to that of a non fanged harmless snake such as a garter snake or a water snake. My point is the words "venom" and "fangs" scare people. I am not talking about potential buyers. I do my part in disclosing the risks of bites and reactions. I am talking about the general public. I do believe those teeth can be considered fangs, but they are in fact teeth. I also know they have anticoagulant properties that may be classifies as venom but it is much less harmful than that of a common spider or a honey bee. People have reactions to just about anything in this world. I would say that hognose saliva is the least of our worries. Education never hurts though.
