From everything I've seen... the people in their garages wit scissors really do hurt the animal, and its a shame that it is that way. But on the other side, there are a few qualified surgens that do the surgery on a regular basis, and from what I've read these snakes live just as long and don't have any more health problems than a normal with most species of venomoids.

Of course, text on the internet can be plagued with lies, so they could just be telling me what they want to.

I think that I can relate to Carmichael the most... I don't have a nature center, but I do teach people a fair amount. There are very few insurance companies that will cover venomous snakes... there isn't any profit in it for them, so they don't see the need.

Truth be told, I see now that it is possible to run shows with venomous snakes... we'll just see if I can own one first =/
