Lightbulb Training for venomous snakes

Hi, my name is Brandon Smith. I am in the shrevport/bossier louisiana area. I have been trying to find anyone in the area that has a venomous handling permit and can train. I'm eager to learn and want to find a mentor. I understand the risks involved with venomous snakes but I am set on learning and getting the training. The reason I want to learn and get training is because I want to handle them and be able to educate others in the future. I would love to have my own personal venomous collection, nothing huge but two snakes I would love to have are the monocle cobra(Naja kaouthia) and the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake (Crotalus adamanteus).

Anything helps!

Thank you.

That's a damn shame, EDB are truly beautiful. Do you work with monocles/ own any venomous snakes?

From what I've seen, monocles can go two ways, crazy as hell or absolutely chill. Copper are pretty, you got a picture? How long have you been working with venomous snakes?

Iíve been working with hots for about 3ish years now. Good starter cobras are aspedilaps when you can find them. Act like naja but max is like 2í and not nearly as potent venom. That was my first hot w/o being under mentor supervision.

Three years on your own is damn good. Aspedilaps are very interesting in their appearance. Might consider it as a first if I can find a mentor and get my hours completed lol. Hopefully when I talk to Steve he has good advice and can point me in the right direction.
