it might seem crazy to alot of people to keep the species Arietans keeps, but from what I have seen on other forums, he knows perfectly well how to keep them responsibly.

He also has some of the nicest specimens I've seen.

Wild caught cobras can be a real handful, but usually they settle down quite well. The only unpredictable one's I have ever worked with are Forest Cobras and Cape Cobras.

YOUR'E NUTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful critters. The only thing that has ever kept me from keeping hot snakes is their ability to escape. I would never forgive myself if anyone around me got bit, and heaven forbid, died.

In the past I have kept some deadly critters. I used to have a stonefish and blue ring octopus. The stonefish grew to be around a foot. They are the deadliest fish in the world. And I actually bred the blue ring octopus. I ended up destroying around 100 of their babies after they were a few weeks old, because I couldn't keep them all and didn't want the responsibility of giving them to other people.

The big difference here is if those critters escaped, they died. They weren't waiting for your neighbor to to look in their closet for something. LOL

Take care,

Tom

thats true...i would feel bad too. but if snakes are PROPERLY housed...then they have about as much chance of escaping and ending up in your neighbors closet and the octopus.

Lucky guy!! I would love to catch a Rattlesnake. Ask your "friend" what Timbers are like in general :)

Housing is a number one priority. Nothing but 100% secure is good enough

Dang dialup! I've kept hots before but I've had so many things get out that I don't trust myself to keep them anymore. Some people are real good at at. I stopped considering it when I had a bad experience with a large Timber rat.
