"Bryan: Thanks. I have done quite a bit of reasearch on venomoids and have been looking into a Crotalus atrox with a full adenectomy and human grade replacement implants. I have been looking at getting this done through Carolina Reptile Exchange. "

Please take the opportunity to research more about venomoid dealers prior to making your purchase. Although I do believe Bruce at CRE claims to use DVM for his venomoids, you might want to check out other DVMs that surgically alter snakes.

There has been no evidence related to reparative regeneration of venom ducts in Vipers and that's why you will find a several venomoid specimens which still have full glands; however, there has not been much research on Crotalids and I believe the idea of a adenectomy and ductectomy definetly sounds like a good decision. On vipers and crotalids adenectomies are more invasive than on most elapids due to the placement of their venom glands and the surgical area required for either internal procedures or those behind the skull.
