While she may be experienced (we don't know, but probably at least fairly judging by the collection), it sounds far from ideal. At least she had the venomous secured. I do find it disturbing when venomous caging is "All over the house". It makes me wonder if she had proper protocols in place.

it is no excuse for keeping deadly reptiles in a suburban home, endangering the lives of neighbors, strangers and the emergency personnel who had to enter the home.
What a crock! There has NEVER been a case of an escaped venomous animal biting a neighbor, etc. Another elitist zookeeper that thinks that zoos are the only ones that should be able to keep exotic animals. i wonder if her realizes how much knowledge of captive husbandry of herps came from private keepers.
