    Re: Question regarding "de-venomizing" a snake

    i think cleveland and quagmire from family guy said it best. "sex with out potency is pointless, you take the venom from a cobra and what do you have? you have a belt."

    Re: Question regarding "de-venomizing" a snake

    Not to be the devil's advocate or anything (well, I guess that's exactly what I'm being.. haha), but whenever these discussions come up about venomoids come up, I see nothing but terrible analogies and opinions masquerading as facts..

    While I'm not a big fan of them myself, I'd really like to see better arguments made other than "Its like a gun without bullets" and its a cruel procedure. Yes, the backroom hack jobs are cruel procedures, but advancements this day and age provide for pretty damn humane surgeries when done correctly. I'd also like to see actual research data regarding the argument about them not being able to digest food. I've never actually seen solid data for or against this argument, and most every point everyone raises in these discussions, are pretty much just regurgitated info they've heard from someone else.

    Like I said, I'm not saying this to argue for venomoids. But I really dislike ill formed arguments in any discussion. I enjoy hard data, not speculation

    Where did you get that you offended him? As far as I can tell, his answer didn't even address your analogy.

    Were you hoping to offend him?

    Anthony:

    Studies have been done on digestions and venomoids - no appreciable difference.

    What?

    I'm not for devenomizing, but I have never heard of it being lethal for hots to be devenomized. (Disregarding the chance of infection after the surgery.)

    Whether it affects digestion or it doesn't, it is cruel to alter an animal for a human's whim.....whether it is making a venomous a venomoid, or clipping ears on a dog......Cosmetic, no medical necessity. Leave things the way nature intended, and if people don't like it they can buy a nonven or a collie
