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?
