 Another question

So i got another question...
If you have a small kid, would you still keep your venomous snakes in the house? What would happen if the snake got out and your kid was near it? Sorry that i ask a lot of stuff but i had this question on my mind for a while now.

yes, in a locked room filled with double screened locked cages. This should be standard with or without a kid. And IF a snake gets out, it should be in the locked room. I dont have a kid but I have gone so far as to put screening over the air vents along the floor and a weathering strip along the bottom of the door to ensure that the snake cannot get beyond that room. But the ultimate goal s to not let it past its cage.

 Another question

One time at band camp...concern trolling is a wee bit annoying. As with any other hobby there are a variety of people involved; there are those who take the extra step to insure their animals are secure and healthy and there are those on the other side of the spectrum and all points in between. Is there a point to your anecdote? If it is that there are some people who are a bit more casual in their keeping and safety measures, it is not really a groundbreaking discovery.

Yes, the point is that you are not revealing anything new with your anecdote about someone whose home you have been to allegedly keeping mambas in what you feel are less than safe conditions in a common room of their home. In every human activity from work to play there are those who approach their tasks seriously and those who do not and a range of behaviors in between. First, you question why anyone would keep venomous species and then go on to relate an anecdote about someone keeping venomous animals in what are described as less than safe conditions. There are keepers of potentially dangerous, non-venomous species that keep their animals in unsecured cages. See the recent fatality in Webster, Florida. If there is a safety issue, would it not be wise to address the question to the keeper of the mambas and the parent of the child rather than to some anonymous folks on the internet? That is the person who has a potential safety issue and is the only person who can alter their behavior to effect change in this scenario, without intervention by some outside authority.

You asked a question, it was answered. If you desire flame wars, I suggest you seek another forum.
