This is a topic that varies. Some people describe certain snakes as the most challenging to work with, everyone has their opinions; and their individuals. For instance, I've seen a >3' timber puff up and hiss with the viciousness of certain Bitis spp. that i need not name, in between striking so hard he flew clear across a 3' long enclosure. Like i mentioned, they are all individuals, i'm sure you and everyone reading this is already knows. Generalizations about a certain species may bring about the opportunity to put one's self into a dangerous situation. Complacency.

:In order
:Western diamond backs. jumpy and willing to bite I know!
:Black mambas they are the worst to try to hook tail or what ever.
: they will send you to your maker in a instant!

:mocs and copperheads will give you a love tap but its not as fatal as most.
:and last but not least the death adder mine jumped his entire length and got me so fast it was not even funny.
:
:puff adders are not to be tailed or handeled a big one can wipm side to side and catch you off guard. causing a terrible near death experiance.

:but dont go out and buy a venomoid skill is a majior part of being a snake wrangler with out skill the rest is meaningless.

::Has anybody got any information on which snakes they find the most difficult to handle - in a captive situation...and which species never seem to settle down - even after being captive for a number of months/years??
