The venom delivery is nothing special. Some other Asian Natricines have at least equally to or greater sized(particularly Macropisthodon) modified teeth. This of course means that any large Asian Natricine should be handled with caution.

In anycase, there is no chance of them going through the MW gloves.

As for tips (other than don't get bit!), they like to bask over water so put heavy branches or overhang rocks there.
