Yeah, since the time I posted this, I did some research about the subject. I do agree that it's unethical to remove the ducts. But I'm still interested to find out how, in scientifical terms, the venom ducts/glands are removed, and how some surgeons are able to keep the head from shriking or looking totally destroyed. I wasn't able to find any information about that. Personally, I've had an extreme facination for King Cobras since I was a child, however, with my level of experience (0), I'm not planning on purchasing one just yet. As for my first snake, I'm going to settle for a constrictor until I'm able to buy a venemous snake.

Anyway, I hope I can find more information on this procedure.

Thanks for your help.
