I am sorry you dont understand the behavior of the animals yet. Not all hots are stressed by human contact, quite the opposite. Many king cobras, edbs, canes etc will tame down and Identify with keepers, you would only know that by years of experience with the animals. Again, I dont care what ya say venomoids are wrong, lions with canines pulled are wrong and just to cripple an animal to make a human more comfortable is wrong, we are selfish animals by nature, and its just another example of what we do to avoid certain realities. I dont need to go into how long I have kept what etc etc. I know that the practice is wrong and until I see a surgical License when the surgery is preformed its hard to argue against it.
:I know that this is never going to end. I have never outright bought a venomoid snake from someone who does the surgery. I have bought one though. I have had HOTS for ten yrs. and I very rarely hook and tail them.
I use trap boxes, so mine are almost never touched. Since you handle your snakes routinly I envy you. I will not put that kind of stress on mine though.
:As for the comparing Venomoids to a lion I think you are really off base. I know that there are alot of house cats(not LIONS) who have been declawed just so they dont tear up the furniture,it had nothing to do with life or death, just the material things that so many of US in the world HAVE to have.
:I think that if any of you had REAL proof that these surgeries were done with playdough and ace hardware tools then the people that do it would already be in jail or fined. If what you say is true then I will be the first to change my tune, but untill you have concrete evidence dont accuse someone of something and then run down their name and bash all of their friends.
:I believe that we can all be adults about this and the name calling should stop.
:By the way budman his name is Rich not Dick so grow up, and have little more class.
