Totally agree that you did the right thing. I have two small children myself & I would not have hesitated. I do believe that any venomous or super aggresive animal should not live in the same house as minor children. A responsible keeper of such animals would love them & their children & house them seperately. Before we got our corns we had considered tarantulas , something I have wanted for a long time. While admiring them in a pet store a gentleman told me that their venom is lethal to children & no matter how "tame" the animal there would always be the risk. My mind did not hesitate to decide no tarantulas til my kids are grown. I'll continue to admire them in stores til then. Anyone who has kids knows there really is no such thing as "child proof". Congrats for taking action. Dar.
