: I agree there needs to be some sort of regulations or a liceance one may attain after attending classes where they are educated on the safe handleing of herps, such as the use of sheilds while cleaning the inclosure, feeding, or filling the water dish,etc. We are all required to get a leceance to drive but anyone with the guts to try and catch a venomous reptile and cage it may do so. The problem is these are the guys, myself included, that offten times are bitten, or practice unsafe cageing and end up haveing an escape wich endangers the intire public, wich in turn comes back on all of us who take what we do deadly seriouse. No i wasnt bitten, but my c.atrox taught me a lesson in respect ill never forget. I am fortunate not to have been bitten, and its not because i didnt give the herp plenty of oportunity. I had never owned a snake, much less a hot. There are alot of things i didnt know that i should have known before i ever conceived of such a responsability. So yes, i agree with you 100%.
