::If you can't find anybody, contact your local herpetological society. If you can't find one near where you live, try a nature center that has venomous reptiles on display & see if you can volunteer to feed & clean the cages.
:Does anyone know of anyone that is around Paintsville, Ky that is in Eastern Ky that owns venomous and would be willing to mentor. I wrote earlier about thinking of getting venomous and I have decieded to after I get someone to mentor me. ANd there in lies the problem. So if someone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
