Greg,
I've admitted to the fact that I may have made some incorrect statements here. Stating opinion as fact. I also stated that there is nothing wrong with warning people about the risks of owning a hognose. I don't know what else I can say. The fact of the matter is, Troy's post is misleading and harmful. There is no mention of allergic reaction, there is no mention of the venom's weakness, and to the person that knows nothing about snakes, it looks like that kind of reaction is strictly from venom. It could basically be compared to a copperhead bite.
If it were worded differently, I would have no problem with it. The fact is, if those groups get a hold of it, fedex, or anyone else, the way it is worded is damageing to our community. If you dont believe me, sent the post to the fedex help desk, or better yet, lable all your packages as live rear fanged venomous reptile and see where that gets you. Honestly, this has gone way too far.
