That's a bit offensive just because I have a different opinion than you. I really don't think that the topic of hognose being venomous is as significant as the world being round.

Find it offensive if you like. I really do not understand where this world is going. People take offence to the slightest thing.

Anyway, the thing is, this is not an opinion based topic. Opinions are only relevant when there are no facts for either side to fall back on. In this case, there are numerous bite reports and even some where allergy meds were given/taken and had no effect. Actual milking from Heterodon nasicus Duvernoy's glands (which are indeed venom glands) and venom analysis has been done. Venom compounds, proteins, amino acids, and so on, have been identified. So, based on those facts, how anyone can "believe" they are not venomous is beyond me. This sound more like a religious debate than a factual scientific discussion.
