Whats wrong with using an intact specimen and keeping it in a completely escape proof display enclosure? When using ANY reptile in an educational program one must be 100% sure that the animal cannot escape. When using venomous or venomoids in an educational program the animal has no buisiness EVER being free from it's escape proof enclosure. What would be the point?

With this in mind I cannot concieve of a situation where venomoids would be of any educational value. Unless the presenter wanted to add a bit of unnecessary sensationalism. Handling a venomoid or keeping it in anything less than a completely secure display enclosure while giving a presentation to children would seem like incredibly poor judgement to say the least.

If the animal is in a completely secure enclosure for the presentation....why would it need to be a venomoid?

Insurance and permits to display venomous snakes for educational purposes can be a little expensive, but not outrageous. It is something that qualified individuals should have no problem attaining.
