    Newest venomous addition

    I thought long and hard all day Saturday at the show, and Sunday as well. I ended up buying her at the end of the show Sunday. She's a Black-necked spitting cobra(Naja nigricollis). I'm still debating on a name, so I'll also create a poll to get some input. Here's some pictures of her which aren't that great but it's all I could get before she got really annoyed and started spitting(not her fault as she was stressed).



    -Venomous-

    1.0 - Naja siamensis - Zeus (Black & White Spitting Cobra)
    1.0 - Naja n. woodi - Hades (Black Spitting Cobra)
    0.1 - Naja nigricollis - Athena (Black-necked Spitting Cobra)

    coming at some point in the future
    Naja annulata (Ringed Water Cobra)

    Thanks, and take it from somebody who's been in the hobby a long time, don't be in any rush. I love venomous and I've been dealing with them since I was a kid, only a few years ago did I decide to start keeping venomous and it's potentially a life long decision, and it's got it's own down side of keeping them as a hobby.

    I voted for Athena but I like both names: what I usually do (to break my tie) is check a name dictionary & use the name with the more relevant meaning.

    Right? I did that and I'm still stuck on both lol. So I asked on facebook and figure I'd post here and go with whatever has more votes. I think Athena was winning 5-3 on facebook, so being tied on here it's 7-5 currently.

    I don't think I can vote, as my daughter is named Athena and I have a snake named Artemis, so I obviously love both names.

    Iím just curious, why keep a venomous animal? I donít see how the risk is worth it when there are plenty of awesome nonvenomous species. Definitely not a pet at that point.

    Venomous animals are unique in the way they act and interact with their keepers. Sure they have many non venomous species, but if we're being honest, venomous has the best looking animals in my opinion. It's still a pet, while maybe not in your definition, it's still one in my book. I take my siamensis(Zeus) out and interact with him, and I will do the same with my nigricollis once she's settled in. Zeus especially knows that I pose no threat to him and because of that he's never spit or even tried to bite me. If I have company come over, Zeus knows by the different smell, because he won't come to the front of his enclosure like he does when it's just me.
