Here is condescending for you.
I can care less about your studies. You are a student. That means nothing right now. Its like saying you are studying to be a general practitioner doctor. Thats awesome but I am not going to go to you for heart surgery.

Now, bellow, in red, are direct quotes from Dr. BGF. I do not see where he says hogs are "toxic" and not venomous. Please point it out if I have missed it. Maybe I am the dumb one but I doubt it. Notice how Dr. BGF calls it a venom and not a toxin. Is the worlds leading venom researcher misusing terms?

The toad popping mythology is completely wrong. They do have venom, they do use it but they are not medically important to humans.

The most severe recorded bites have been limited primarily to localised swelling and blistering and these were under extreme circumstances (deliberate allowing of prolonged chewing). Effects that are utterly inconsistent with allergy.

Yes I am using the term 'medically important' in the context of capacity to cause notable or severe human envenomations. This is to stress that just because something has venomous, does not mean it is dangerous.

Heterodon are small, inoffensive snakes that are very appropriate as pets. While they are technically venomous, like most other colubrids,

The Heterodon venom is typical Xenodontinae in that it is rich in medium/large proteins and has less of three finger toxins than the Colubrinae. The

A bit on boomslangs fangs, Mr. I know all about delivery systems... Boomslangs do not have hollow fangs. Not one single member of the colubridae family have hollow fangs for injecting venom. They have grooved fangs. Again, this is very easy information to find. It is better for someone to keep quiet and let people think they are an idiot than it is for that someone to open their mouth and remove all doubt.
