Careless handling from a person who obviously has no business owning hot stuff. Although heavy gloves are certainly acceptable in certain applications, not the way that this person was so callously handling these snakes...ridiculous. And people oftentimes get upset at me when I say "99.99% of people wishing to own a venomous reptiles, shouldn't"...go figure.

>>Not my photo but found it on another site. It's clearly an accident waiting to happen. Good educational photo of what not to do.. The gloves are on because the Puff Adders cage was being cleaned, not as protection. They would not stop the fangs anyway.
