People die and snakes get loose and it all stays the same
if your hypohethes was true they would have been banned years ago.
you canot get AV very easy so not to many people have it.
I dont think it will change if they ban them people will let them go and isnt that what you try to avoid?


:Just curious, of those of you working with hots, how many of you have your own anti-serum and / or a real plan of action in place
:if you get nailed?

:I used to keep hots, and have decided not to...beacuse I feared the public outcry that could happen if I got bit...or...god forbid I had an escape that ended up biting someone else.

:I DO believe that we should have the right to keep hots...but I believe that those of us who do should have the presence of mind to have our own serium for every hot snake we keep and of course to have a hell of a good method to prevent escapes.

:My fear is the one day a death from a hot bite is going to be the fuel that groups like the Humane Society needs to get ALL SNAKES BANNED in the private sector.

:So...do you have your own serum? a Plan?
:THoughts on this?
