I tell you exactly what you are acting like.
Tell me, have you ever kept a gaboon? Have you ever seen one strike at prey or lash out? You sure seem to think you know everything there is to know.
The bottom line is this: I does not matter how unlikely you think it is to happen, it is possible. Since this guy is asking about handling a venomoid gaboon, it is indeed possible. If you have a large enough Gaboon, then holding it down by your waist in indeed within a possible strike range for your eyes with one. Since you act like you know everything there is to know, you should have been able to extrapolate that without being directly told about it.
The chance is extremely slim, if it were to happen though you would suffer real damage. It's something to consider. I am not arguing about who deserves what and what is possible if you follow proper protocol. I am simply pointing out a scenerio which he may have not considered when thinking about free handling a void gaboon.
You have a very standoffish attitude about needing to think you are right, or something. None of your thinking things are silly will change that its a possibility. Just like it doesn't change the fact that with 2 inch fangs a gaboon will be able to damage deep tissues that a python could never reach. If you really knew what you think you know, then you would see its not the most silly thing that has been posted on these forums in awhile.
I really want to know how much experience you have with keeping gaboon vipers and/or other bitis. You seriously act like you have none.
