It isnt at all about inexperience. I have experience in lots of african hots, and I do everything in my power to avoid messing with most of them period. Taking a bite from one of them would most likely end bad. Whether it be in death, or severe damage to my body I just dont risk it. In the words of my late and great friend Bill Haas, you cant love and dedicated your life to these animals without one day taking a bite. I think Bill successfully took more bites from a greater list of species than anyone in the world. He also injected himself daily with increasing dosages of venom. This man took bites from everything from cobras, mambas, vipers, to rattlers etc.

Like Frank I choose to live and experience. In the end Ill bet we will have a hell of a lot more stories to tell then you, even if that means a shorter life lol.

No all joking aside though I do find most North American hots to be mellow if you are easy with them, all except for south pacific rattlers. I havent met one I was comfortable tailing, but thats the exception.

Will
