Hi mate,

Listing based off of clinical danger is pretty much was I was saying when having two definitions: technically venomous [ones that have venom glands, this is of course most colubrids] vs. practically venoms [ones that are likely to actually cause an envenomation, a much shorter list but no doubt one that is missing species]. Its a pretty tough area with no clear cut solutions.

At the end of the day, I think its inappropriate to consider H. gigas as 'venomous' with venomous meaning the same for it as well as an elapid. Thats a bit extreme. However, ones like Psammophis certainly should be considered venomous, with the same use of the word as for elapids.

What I'm concerned about is legislators taking a blanket approach where they ban venomous and anything that remotely falls under that definition is also banned. This is a very real possibility.

All the best
BGF
