i dont own a venomoid but i would be happy to purchase one if they where available with eyelash or other small arborial vipers.my reasoning is that i have a 3 year old son,who i already have a hard time keeping out of my chondro tanks.i would never keep a hot snake in the same house as my child and if the only way i can own one of my dream snakes is to alter it to make it safer,then thats what i would do.and is regards to your"what if the suggery didnt take,ect,,i get robbed and sold a hot instead.bla bla bla....well,my responce is that i have kept and bred snakes for the past 15 years.i think i know how to tell if my snake is deadly or not.another one i love is,well the snake still has teeth and can take out your sons eye.well so does my dog who also happens to be altered surgicaly to allow it to be less aggressive towards humans(neutered),as well as over 75 percent of all the pets americans keep in their house.i think the surgery is a precaution ,not a perfect solution,but what is.if your only concern about the surgery is that it is inhumane,well i say if thats what you think,then you shouldnt keep animals in cages period.i dont think the snake crawled into your house and into a glass prison on its own.i eat meat,i own pets,i wear leather,i go fishing,and ill sure as hell remove a venom gland on a snake if it would save my sons life.from what i have seen,after the surgery,most of these animals go on living and eating normally.one of the biggest signs of a reptile in stress,is going off food.all the people i know who own venomoids,say that their snakes happily feed on their own and never have had to be force fed.
