I do not think the same restrictions should apply to big constrictors that are set for venomous........ Lets face it, They are not nearly as dangerous and are quite easy to care for........ And the eperiance of the keeper will grow as the snake grows....... I do think that you should do extensive research on any animal you buy........ and maybe there should be an age requirement...... I say maybe because I had a burm when I was 8 years old and I cared for it and gave it everything it needed........ The snake is still alive and now has a home with my sister....... I would still have it but my sister would not let me take her when I moved out.......LOL...... Was I ready to have a 15 ft burm when I was 8??? No way....... But I was ready to have a neonate burm and gain experiance, and as it grew so did my experiance........ That is something you CAN NOT do with venomous snakes........
