There are 2 types of venomous keepers. Ones that have been bitten, and ones that will be bitten

I am not a fan of this statement.

I believe when working with venomous, that one must NEVER get within the bite range of the animal. One must also treat the animals with the utmost of respect.

I think an emergency plan should be put into place, etc...but for the most part. Don't screw around...Don't get bit. Read books, talk to other keepers, Get a "Mentor" and learn from that person. Set up your venomous room properly. Make sure your lifestyle works with the desire to keep venomous animals.

Just a thought Wink

Granted, I like your view. However, one issue. How would we get the proteins we use to make say antivenom and countless other medicines that are derived from venom without coming into the "bite range"? Not to mention the fact that as human beings we will get complacent, I have yet to meet a "seasoned" venomous keeper who has never been tagged.
