All about venomous snakes

Note: we @hetTerrarium do not advise nor want to stimulate anyone to purchase or keep venomous snakes. There are many potential risks. It takes many years of extensive experience with many facets of the snake/reptile hobby before one is ready, if ready at all for the responsibility to properly take care and keep safe of these snakes. Remember that anyone is different. Also in their reaction to venom. So even a potential non-life threatening venomous snake can cause mayor heath issues, loss of limb, kidney functions or your life.

That being said. There are a small group of reptile keepers that do a great and responsible job of keeping these animals. Based on a huge amount of experience and knowledge. And it is important to @hetTerrarium to share knowledge. As we can learn a lot from these articles. Even without feeling the specific need to keep a snake like this in our collection.
