Re: Dangers of improper quarantine

Im not quite too sure on that myself as this is just what has always been told to me. I would assume it to have something to do with the fact that there is less known diseases that have been associated with the venomous species compared to boa's and pythons. Wether this is due to less studies being undertaken with venomous species or wether these diseases are just more known within the boa end of family ( which to be fair is common knowledge ). Genetic make up between these two are not too different for lack of a better word.
I wish I knew everything when I started out in keeping snakes, like some obviously do.
