Venomoids and public opinion are two entirely different points.

In terms of your educating the public, its a noble effort, but whether or not you have a venomoid is immaterial. If you are a skilled keeper and qualified to use any species of Crotalid for your demonstrations, using an un-altered snake will and CAN be done without any risk to the public. In fact, the risk involved is so minuscule, its almost non-existent.

You need to remember that you have to teach the public to be RESPECTFUL of the capabilities of these snakes, but ever cognizant, that the real demeanor of rattlesnakes is actually more peaceful than a dog or cat. A captive born venomous snake, RAISED from a neonate, will exhibit this behavior, thus rendering venomoids completely unnecessary.
