You must use a qualified and experienced surgon

Just out of curiosity....what are you considering a "qualified surgeon"? This term can ONLY be applied to a LICENSED DVM. This term does NOT include those individuals who are NOT CURRENTLY a licensed vet. This term does NOT apply to those individuals who have "gotten real good" by hacking away at snakes for years in their garage or basement. The title DVM is the key here.

For presentations, etc they are the only way to go!

Please explain. Does this mean that venomoids can now be handled in close proximity to onlookers without fear of injury? Does this mean that venomoids can be free handled in front of an audience? Does this mean that venomoids can be handled by members of the audience without being securely tubed and restrained? If so...what kind of educational message is that?

Venomous snakes can be safely displayed and used in presentations by keeping them in escape proof display enclosures. Insurance and red tape are no problem for QUALIFIED individuals.

Ethics...hmm...some people keep western diamondbacks in a 20L with a screen lid and they have 4-10 year old kids...now that is irresponsible.

Have you ever heard the old saying "two wrongs don't make a right". One group of people engaging in absurd behavior does not justify the actions of another group that are engaging in equally absurd behavior.
