      Any "hot" handlers in here?

      Just curious if anyone in here deals with venomous. I volunteer my time with the only guy in my area that is licensed to trap / remove the venomous snakes. He's the guy the cops call when reptiles are involved in nuisance calls. We also do shows and safety seminars for the golf courses down here in Florida. Lots of fun. If there are any venomous handlers out there or owners, what ya got? What's your favorite to deal with? I originally started training to keep rattlesnakes but I fell in love with the first Naja Naja I ever handled. 11 1/2 foot female. So pretty. But the laws recently changed here in Florida making it next to impossible to obtain permits. Thinking about moving to Texas.

      I think West B has hots. As well as Nefarian.

      So what do you have?

      And do you have pics to share?

      Actually most cities in Texas ban the keeping of any venomous herpetofuana ... I wish texas would enforce much stricter laws on keeping " hots " .... unfort. all it takes to buy a Stiletto snake or Green Mamba is $65 and a signed documentation from the dealer that you wont sue if you get bite, lol...
