you are quite correct other than that most places won't even let you in with a venomous snake, regardless of if you have a permit.

As far as the law is concerned venomous and venomoids are treated exactly the same. Prohibitions, permits, shipping, etc...all handled the same. What documented proof can you provide for these institutions to assure them that the animal has been rendered "harmless". What proof can you have that the animal is indeed a venomoid, period? Wouldn't detailed photos or powerpoint slides work just as well to educate children about venomous snake identification? This would eliminate the possibility of ANYONE being hurt...human or snake.



One of the reasons that I want a Copperhead is to get 2 adults, and get the same size food and compare their digestion rates.

Your data would be limited to n = 1. To perform any sort of meaningful, "conclusive" research one needs large numbers of test subjects. The larger the better.
