I was just stating this topic will get a much heavier flow than I mentioned. I hoped to cover things to avoid seeing another long list of people taking up an entire page. The immorality of a venomoid surgery is just as you stated. You you forget to lock a cage, someone else gets in, or you go to pick it up and it bites you...not acceptable situations. If you are keeping a venomous snake or a snake which has surgically been altered to no longer be venomous, you need to keep it in a secure and locked room AND in secure and locked enclosure. The room must not be a room able to be escaped by snakes (which is hard to do). Most people are not able to do this and would like to take short cuts just to have a pretty snake. Short cuts which ultimately leaving the law to make decisions for us. A big problem with venomoid surgery is finding a professional qualified to do it. Many are not done legally and putting trust the snake is still not lethal is on you. But we assume you do have a legal professional to do the surgery. You still run risks of regeneration sometimes. We can then just "assume" this does not happen and you "assume" the surgery goes perfectly and there are no infections or problems. There are many people who feel the effects from not having the aid of venom to digest prey will have severe effects on its life. With vipers especially. Venomous snakes really are for people who have an extreme dedication to their care and a means to keep risks of escape down to where only a talented criminal could get into the facility and release snakes or a natural disaster causes escapes. Anything else is pretty much unacceptable. Picking up snakes without proper use of tools and proper experience is also unacceptable. I am sorry I hoped the post was not serious but people (especially kids) know how to push buttons and will say controversial things just to watch the wars from it. This topic always ends up with a huge list of opinions and causes fights between people when people get overly heated and attack individuals. It wastes time and I hope this thread will be different. Hope This helped.
