Unfortunately, people need to accept that venomoids have become a controversial issue that's growing in popularity and I believe it is not because of the negative opinions expressed on forums like this one. If the claims and opinions regarding venomoid surgery have any valid facts, then why is it that more people are getting venomoids and more venomous reptiles dealers are willing to sell their animals to a DVM who will surgically alter the animal.

It's time some people wake up a realize that the choice to devenomize a snake it's not based on animal rights, ethics, or other argumentative factors, but rather the simplest reason which is safety. A venomoid cobra with full adenectomy and ductectomy that accidentaly gets out of its cage and bites someone in the community will definetly make the news and have a negative impact in our hobby, but it's not going to kill someone.
