I agree with Kelso Reptiles before you get one you need to do TONS of research on which one your getting and if i were you I’d want to have experiance with a venomous snakes before i have one living in my house as a pet.

 Poisonous snakes

We still have a long way to go before we decide what is the least poisonous snake, since we only have a few poisonous snakes documented. The most poisonous I would have to hand to certain populations of Rhabdophis tigrinis : )

Now for least venomous snake... I suppose we could probably hand that to the egg eaters. In fact, I don’t even know if any venom has been able to be drawn from them, but I suppose we suspect there is some trivial hint there. Until recently we have not been able to draw venom from any of the boas or pythons, or many of the North American kings/milks, bulls/pines, and rat snakes. All that was able to be obtained was a mucus "snotty" substance. But after a little work, they were able to get some neurotoxins that could positively ID the origin of venom there. Neurotoxins would only be present in a venom gland, and serves no other interest but to subdue their prey.

So my answer would have to be...if you truly want the least venomous snake...get an egg eater.

This would require a lot of research and I mean this in the kindest way, but if this is the place you are conducting this research then this animal may not be for you. I have read that before owning a venomous snake, you should keep none venomous ones for three years without having a single bite because a single bite with a venomous snake can easily be your death.

With that said, before acquiring a V. species on your own, I recommend you contact others who own venomous snakes and ask to learn how to handle them and what their care needs are.

To be honest, I believe that these are not pets. They belong in the wild or with researchers and educators. Captivity poses risks for both you and anyone around you.

Do you have prior experience with snakes? If yes, then you probably realize they can be escape artists.

If you are looking for a snake that isn’t into handling or just for "display" then a Green Tree Boa may be more up your ally if you have the experience. I personally don’t like the idea of "display" animals, but that’s just me.

Excues me Snake1zn, in my personal opinion anyone useing textspeak that rampantly is usually either in a hurry, on their phone, or way too new to get a venomous snake except possibly a hognose.

Actually, there are poisonous snakes. But to reply to the OP’s post if you are unsure of state laws or where to get one you arent nearly ready to own one.

I just saw a documentary about a type of garter snake that eats toads and frogs and can retain the toxins from the prey and secrete it from their skin when attacked. Pretty cool.

    INSURANCE!

    Check with your health insurance provider to ensure that your policy covers your medical care if you are bitten by one of your hot snakes. Many policies do not cover issues such as riding s motorcycle, piloting an airplane, or, presumably, keeping venomous snakes. Also check to see that your homeowner’s policy covers you if one of your hot snakes escapes and bites, or even just terrorizes, one of your your neighbors.

    Some years ago, I learned that The Hartford would write a policy to cover these matters. I did not inquire about the costs, but I suspect they were/are pricey.

    It’s worth checking.
