You mentioned educational shows, why do you feel they are safer for educational shows? Safer for whom, the person doing the show or the people at the show? If the person doing the show can't properly handle his snakes in a safe manner, he shouldn't have them. If the people at the show are in any danger, the person isn't handling his snakes properly. There is NO reason why any snake at an educational show should get near anyone that is in the audience. If it does, once again, the person is not handling his snakes properly and should not be qualified to do any display. Pro-venomiders seem to mention educational animals quite often, yet I have never seen, nor met anyone who actually has seen, an educational display with venomoids. If a person needs an unloaded snake to do displays for insurance purposes, then they can't afford to give the snake proper care and shouldn't have them to begin with. I have never met anyone who has had any trouble doing shows with loaded snakes, yet you always hear venomoiders talk about insurance.
If a person needs to use venomoids in a show, they need recommend their audience go to a zoo, where they will learn more from qualified people, who value the snakes health and well being, as much as the person handling it.
