Personally I think the minimum age should be 18 year old to handle, care for, or own any venomous species (Whether it is a rear fanged mildly venomous, or an Elapid etc.) Also rear fanged does not automatically mean it is a mildly venomous snake. I have some of my Mangroves (Boiga Dendrophila) that will eat mice, but I have 2 that will only eat Lizards. It is all dependnt on the animal. Each animal will be individual.
:what should the age limit and experience level be to owning a false water cobra? and also, can any one name a good beginers species of rear fanged snake that can eat rodents? ( since lizards and frog are hard to find or buy has feeders where i live ) :
