I've been keeping snakes for about 5 years now, and have helped a local breeder with his collection and have caught many snakes. Recently, I read that you can buy snakes that have had their venom glands removed, and I had a couple questions about that.
1. Does the process actually work? Can they permanantly not secrete venom through their fangs after this process?
2. Does the surgery have a bad effect on the snake? i.e feeding and health problems?
3. If the surgery does effect snakes, are there ones that fair better after the surgery than others (like Rattlesnakes)
