Wow! I'll think you'll get tons of replies on this one.
But I'll try to head it off at the past.
I don't think there is any reason to "venomoid" a snake! Either native "or" exotic.
Whats your point? Is it for "your" own safety that a venomous snake is rendered "venomoid",(so you can handle it) or is it perhaps you don't want to learn how to safely "work" a venomous snake?
What about the snake? Does the snake have an option in this?
Or, do you want a "venomoid" because to live in an area that prohibits the possession of venomous snakes?
As far as educational aspects, (i.e. showing students what a venomous snake looks like) consider using graphics or a live (fully equipped) venomous snake in a locked cage!
It's wise to change your attitude about "venomoids" because people on this forum will torch you.
Educate yourself on venomous snakes and ask plenty of questions, then make an educated decision. As choosing a proffession, i.e. "milking" snakes for a living, I'd go the other route (zoo).
