ok my king baboon is about 2 1/2 inches...he acts just like any other baboon (psychotic, evil).....well a couple times with the paint brush i have gotten him to rear up and also strike...(not for thrills, but picture taking)...anyways tonight i was feeding and watering all my critters, and i was showing my gf's son what he would do, well anyways i noticed something as he was rearing way up....a noise....well, either he was squirting venom, or he was hissing....and i dont think they can squirt venom, can they? didnt see any....but i tried this about 5 or so times, and every time i heard a small and quick hissing noise...any thought on this? thanks

Yeah, seen videos of obts doing this as well...Pretty cool defense mechanism. Try not to stress it out too much poor little one.
