I Just read your post to Troy about you being a former venomous keeper. Not sure how long you kept venomous for, but even if it was not very long you should know the difference between an envenoming and an allergic reaction. My opinion is that you know the difference full well. You are just trying to down play the facts, which I totally get. However, getting a puffy hand for a couple of days is not going to cause law makers to make a move against the hognose keeping community. They are still considered a harmless snake in all States and Countries. Even with scientific literature, law makers have been unsuccessful in getting hognose snakes banned or regulated because of their mild, medically insignificant venom.

I myself, have tens of thousands of dollars invested in hognose snakes. I produced some amazing hogs this season. I don't want to see regulations put on them. I am not worried about it happening and Troys post will not be the nail in the hognose coffin.
