If you are only talkin a couple it is not to bad, but if you are talkin bunches, it will be like walkin through a briarpatch teeth everywhere. If your friend is throwing venomous in the mix, well I wouldn't even keep a couple in there. Just my opinion,
I have done it, I do not do it anymore and I will never do it again.
A bad year with reptiles is better than a good year without em.
