I don't necessarily agree with the reasons behind why many people own venomoid snakes. I do not own one, and I don't think I would buy one. I think in some cases, it is appropriate to use venomoids. For example, if the snakes are used in educational shows, I think it would be safer for everyone to use a venomoid. But at the same time, I think that the procedure should be performed by a licensed and experienced veterinarian. I don't think you or anyone is qualified to say that the procedure is never performed by a vet. I know of at least one vet who has performed the duct removal. He is an excellent vet, and takes the utmost care when doing the procedure. Vets most certainly do perform these kinds of operations. Of course there are butchers out there who do maim their snakes, and I'm vehemently against this kind of stuff. These people should be prosecuted.

I think venomoids have their place in the world of herpetoculture, but only when the procedure is performed correctly and with proper care.
