a person trying to prove they are aware of the dangers in keeping snakes. What I also see is a person who is completely ignorant to the fact that free handling any venomous or venomoid reptile is completely irresponsible. I see someone who is obviously not prepared for this angle of herp keeping. If you want to use the word "tame" I will not be so stereotypical and jump all over it but I will say there are more idiots keeping large constrictors they feel are tame as well. These people who are fine handling them without help are idiots as well so you should not be using them in your argument (assuming there is one). Both large snakes and venomous require special housing, tools, back up, and protocals (oh ya..and experience). With venomous you use more tools than back up and with large constrictors you use more back up hands than tools...but that doesnt matter and I am getting off topic. I do not get into the venomoid debates because I dont feel I have time for the many of them. But I will say it is very very rare I find a person who can find a way to support venomoid snakes in a responsible and eduacted mannor. I have talked to people who would own a venomoid snake and are completely responsible and understand what they are doing. They also would never buy a venomoid to support the rediculous market and have a vet who would perform the procedure. Either way, they would still never handle any different than if they were hot. Anyway, this is going nowhere and its sad to see so many people willing to risk the nature of the hobby and possibly have more laws passed due to their irresponsible behavior and wanting to handle what they believe to be venomoid snakes. By the way, my father lost a leg and he said it isnt hurting.
