Thanks for your input! I know that their are some very sick people out there that do do hack job surgerys just for money, I wouldn't purchase an animal like a gaboon without personally speaking to the person, getting the phone number to the vet who would be doing the surgery, blah blah blah..I would treat it just like I would if I was getting a dog, making sure that it had some sort of papers, along with vet records. I also don't mind paying top dollar for an animal as long as I know that I'm getting exactly what I want. I also have a friend who milks snakes as part of his job, who I would ask to attempt to milk every now and then, just to make sure. I also have easy access to a herp vet. I have been keeping large snakes and lizards for a few years, so I know all about animals needing a very specific environment. This isn't something that I just up and decided I wanted to do last night, and this isn't something that I think that I will go out and buy tomorrow. As for getting bitten by a hot gaboon, like I said before I have a friend who Milks snakes as part of his job (he's apperenticing being a herp vet) so I know that their is antivenin avalable in case something bad happens. Even if the gaboon wasn't hot, those fangs are huge!! What you wrote back makes me think that mabye it isn't the right snake for me, because I deffinately would try to handle it and tame it down as much as possible. I know that there is a big chance of infection, but I have experience getting bitten by large reptiles and know how to care for the bites. Thank you for answering my questions, and in a few monsths when I'm ready to make the decision, who knows, mabye I'll be posting pictures!!
