Despite how youtube makes it look, keeping venomous snakes isn’t all that glamorous. You look at them, you feed them, you change their water, and you pull them out once a week or so to clean up the poo.
Tbh Don, it would not do much for me to keep them because of the simple facts you stated. I enjoy holding/communing with my animals. Just a visual is not enough for me. However if some folks want to keep them then I say go for it!
Do you keep them for a specific purpose or just to have them? Thank you for the pictures too!
Thats a great point! I’ve never thought about it that way. I could see how easy it could be to become a little too complacent with just handling our mostly very tame captive reptiles, that when they do bite us we think it’s cute or funny! I’ve seen some of your relocation pics, (like the rattlesnakes stuck in deer nets!) and you definitely need all your skills sharp!
