I did educational programs for over twenty years. These were given to civic groups, herp societies & public & private schools. I used live native fully equipped venomous snakes. They were transported in locked cages, but were removed from the cages during the program. I had a buffer zone between me & the audience. There were never any incidents or even close calls.
My thoughts on venomoids have always been that if you don't have what it takes to work with a fully equipped venomous snake, then you ought not to work with them. Period. Brutalizing a snake to make up for one's lack of skill is just wrong.

The above paragraph is not meant as a flame. The program I did is the attached link. If you decide to continue with an educational snake program, regardless as to how you wish to approach it, feel free to use any information on that site.
