I'll avoid the venomoid debate too, other than to say that the surgery, even when done by a vet under proper conditions, doesn't guarantee complete devenomation. If one gets a venomoid, it's still best to assume it's fully armed.
That said, with a baby in the house, I'd recommend no venomous, venomoids OR large constrictors. I recommend you get rid of those animals and avoid acquiring others until the child has grown to the age where life threats are easily understood.
>>i have a burm and a blood python and i like so many venomous snakes. but i am worried about having a venomous snake get loose with a baby in the house. i dont know much about venomoids except that they had glands removed. i also heard that it is stressful on the snake. is this true, b/c i also have gone on some websites and they talk how they try to cause the least amount of stress upon the animal. is this practice looked down apon or is it not as bad as some people say. i dont want to help promote a bad thing. also how aggressive are gaboon vipers.
>> thanks mark
