Only one person has responded and I would like to have ideas and views from lots of people so please take the time to respond Thank you

I have been working with reptiles and amphibians since I was 7. I am turning 19 in a week and I would love to start into venomous. So here are some questions.
A. I was thinking of an eyelash viper? Good starter or not?
1. How potent is the venom?
2. Are there any good caresheets that I could look at?
B. Would another species be better? I am open to suggestions however I am not real keen on vine snakes. I do absolutely love vipers in general, especially the rhino (I know way to venomous for a newbie).
C. Finally Any information that you could give me on the species you suggest would be much appreciated

Thank you for all of your help

AJ
