Well, I met my first elapid face to face this weekend. I had the opportunity to handle a venomoid mozambique spitter. He was THE sweetest thing. Very calm, and this particular one will even turn part of his belly towards yopu if you rub it. I know this goes against the best practice of treating even venomoids as though they were hot, but this one was recently tested, and I know the surgeon personally.
I'm still a few years away from owning hots, and even a few more away from owning elapids, but I still want to know if this is typical of mozambiques, or spitters in general?
