..whatever personal views we have of venomoids, the show promoters shouldn't be expected to take a stance on who they should or shouldn't sell tables too. SO long, as their isn't a blatant safety concern, its not for them to say the person can or can't sell venomoids. I don't personally like them either, but if I wanted to convey the message on the evils of venomoids, I'd set up a website with some facts about it, OR better yet....BUY A TABLE at the show right next to them and distribute information as too why venomoids shouldn't be allowed. The number one point I would stress is that, venom gland removal isn't a genetic trait....its not passed on to the offspring. Keep in mind, their only goal is too make money on the inadequate skills of novice keepers.

The only way you will stop them is too educate handlers BETTER, so they aren't getting bit and have the necessary skills to handle a fully hot snake, thus eliminating the need for unskilled keepers to purchase an altered snake.
