I love the copperheads.
Is it common to keep venomous snakes over there? Does it require a whole host of special permits as it does here?
I've been to the hot room at Hamm with a vet friend of mine. He's into the vipers. He's got a whole room full of them.
Not really that common as the Venomous market in the UK counts for about 11%.
Yes over here we require a DWA which is a Dangerous Wild Animal Licence we also have to have Public Liability Insurance.
I`m just starting to rebuild my Hot collection again.
Over here I'd be surprised if the venomous snakes were more than 1% of the market. Very few people can get the necessary permits.
I live in the County of Essex and in my home borough I am the only person licensed to keep Venomous Snakes.
Well if ever one were to escape, they'd know whose door to knock on, wouldn't they?
He's a very handsome guy.
Believe it or not there are many properties , too many in the UK that have these Reptiles illegally , there was one place around a mile away from me that was raided by police , when they got in there was a 5ft Caiman on the loose just walking about in the house. There were many Venomous snakes as well, Cobras , Rattlers, many of the snakes had to be put to sleep due to their poor condition and there were also many other dead non venomous snakes and lizards.
