Postby curtis48 » Fri Feb 18, 2011 6:23 pm

Hello everyone :D. I want to start keeping venomous snakes. But i want a snake that is very aggressive but mildly venomous for now so i can try to not getting bitten. I saw a white lipped tree viper eating the other day and was thinking of getting one. Any suggestions? I also want it to not be a fussy easter :D
thanks everyone

Hi Cirtus, just a word of advice, don't underestimate White Lipped Tree Vipers!

Hope you find a suitable snake!
