At 20 and a tech student ( I don't think my facts were that far off ), why is it that you feel the need to "free handle", your boomslangs? Not that you're not capable of it, I'm sure you have many years of experience handling them. I'm looking forward to reading your published findings after your scientific endevours are complete ( now I'm berading you ). Hopefully you'll have that done before you receive your Darwin Award. And hopefully your quest to be the next great scientist doesn't get you killed. I apologize to the others in this thread for interrupting, I just feel this "hobby" doesn't anymore bad publicity, especially because of some gung-ho kid who thinks he's Bill Haast.
I'm sure you won't see my point Chance, so I'll stop while I'm not ahead.


::at 19 years old and a community college student, exactly what "work" do you need to do with them?

:Not really sure where you're getting your facts here, but I'll answer anyway. Actually, I'm 20 (as of Sept 22), and not a community college student. I attend Arkansas Tech University (the keyword there being university, as it has been an accredited university for quite some time now). ATU isn't a "community college." As to the work I'm hoping to do with them, I'm wanting it to go one of either two ways. I'd like to either do work testing the intelligence of this snake (which to me at least, is obvious), or trying to find out exactly why it is that they produce the smell they do. That smell can be very strong at times but not at others, so there has to be some reason behind it. Hope that explained a little to you. Not saying that your post was in any way an attempt to berate me, but if it was, it's always a good idea to have facts to back yourself up with.
