 Idiot question

Sorry I’m completly oblivious to how venomous snakes are taken care of but can you actually handle most venomous snakes if you tamed them as a neonate? Or do you just defang them? I don know

No handling what so ever. The bites can be costly and taming from neonates does not help, they may still bite you. De-fanging the snake wouldnt be so good either. The fangs just come back. That is why people remove the venom glands. Yet they dont know that venom is a modified form of saliva. so when this is done the snake cant eat properly and would eventually kill the snake via hunger.
