I love snakes but never quite got the point of keeping hots..Plus im bored and have never talked to hot owners or even considered having one myself... So what is the big thing about venomous? I understand keeping them for research and making antivenom etc.. Do you keep antivenom around in case you get bit by some exotic species that local hospitals cant treat? What if there is a tornado or hurricane and your snakes get out and bite some little kid.Wouldnt you feel really bad? (number one reason I dont keep hots, is Ive lost a few snakes, can you imagine what my hubby would do if I lost a Mamba in the house.LOL) Wouldnt you worry if you lived next door to crackheads who you knew kept hots and you had kids? Not trying to flame anyone just like to hear from actual venomous owners.I am not a troller or someone that thinks we should make more laws, just a curious snake owner.
