the fact is this, there are snakes out there that captivate the interest of people who are unwilling to put their lives in danger to keep a "pet". if the surgery is done by a professional, aka a vet, then it is not that bad. of course you are going to have mishaps with snakes who's surgeries have complications, but you have with that humans too.

this issue is also largely dependent on what type of snake you are looking to purchase. if you're going to get a less venemous, non-lethal snake, then i wouldn't waste the time looking for a venemoid. however, if you're looking for something like a monacled cobra, i would highly suggest a venomoid.

pretty much it comes down to what makes you most comfortable at the end of the day. are you going to be happy handling a venemous snake? or will the fact that it can bite you but not kill or maim you make you more comfortable with its husbandry? answer that question for yourself and you'll have your answer on whether or not you want a venemoid.

hope this helps.
