Hello,

I've been keeping snakes for about 5 years now, and have helped a local breeder with his collection and have caught many snakes. Recently, I read that you can buy snakes that have had their venom glands removed, and I had a couple questions about that.

1. Does the process actually work? Can they permanantly not secrete venom through their fangs after this process?

2. Does the surgery have a bad effect on the snake? i.e feeding and health problems?

3. If the surgery does effect snakes, are there ones that fair better after the surgery than others (like Rattlesnakes)

Thanks
