:I can respect what you are saying and I am not one those people that have to mame the animal so that I feel safe.

Good. I figure if you have to cripple an animal before you feel safe around it, you should leave that animal in a zoo or in the wild.


:My point is dont put me down for owning it. I got it as a MOID from a friend, if he was hot I still would have got it. But I will be damned if I am going to kill it just because it is venomoid. So I guess I am in a bit of a pickle. You answer me this what do YOU think I should do with MY venomoid.

It never fails to amaze me how many people imagine that it is the snakes I am mad at. I think you should take good care of the poor crippled animal and do what you can to convince people not to hurt any more snakes. The snake deserves the best of care. What happened to the animal is not its fault.

I don't have any issues with venomous keepers who end up with a venomoid that they wouldn't have chosen to make that way. The people I have profound disrespect for are the ones whose lack of skill or lack of patience causes them to hurt a snake on purpose just so they can have a shiny new toy.
