Possibly the most stupid add in the world...EVER!

http://market.kingsnake . com/detail...t=40&de=130300

Please, EVERYONE! Go to this url above & have a look at the stupid price for a WESTERN DIAMOND BACK & SPECTACLED COBRA.

This could be a very dangerous mistake to make, just to make a few quid. I for one wouldn't be happy if my kids went & spent their allowance with these people.

This company ship world-wide. There's only a few countries that have these snakes. If they were shipped to another country where they don't have the anti-vemon, this could be a grave mistake.

PLEASE, AT LEAST E-MAIL THEM to try to stop them selling at such a rediculously low price, making them available to ANYONE!

They won't stop so don't waste your time. I don't notice a CB label anywhere so they probably go out and collect these snakes to make a quick buck. That's the only thing that bothers me about some venemous people (well any wholesale place really not just hots), they collect for re-sale. I understand getting new blood or localities but just for selling of easy to get CB species is wrong IMHO.

Unless people stand up & try, who knows.

Country:
Its would be really hard to convince them to sell for more. They can always argue that in some places you can go pick them up off the street or wherever. Its a sorry deal though.

If someone is dumb enough to buy a hot in an area that does not carry the antivenom for it, they deserve to die. Making hots more available is going to have a good/bad effect. 1) Natural selection. It's the bottom of the food chain. Let the morons get tagged and die. 2) This will unfortunately bring hot keepers into the limelight, which just cannot have a positive outcome.

If the guy who posted this ad is going out and catching these snakes in 50 lots, he deserves to die. I hope he gets tagged repeatedly.

Haha. I like your thinking. Unfortunately not every kid with Mommy and Daddy's credit card knows which snakes are hot and which aren't. *sigh*
