I get the, "is it venomous?"
I say, "yes"
end of story
Some of my more stupid mates amuse themsleves by making my treesnakes strike, i tell them to put some chicken necks in their pants and walk in the spencers enclosure if they want to witness a feeding reaction...

its funny when people hear i keep them in my bedroom, they instantly ask "What if it gets out and eats you while your sleeping ?!", i hate explaining obvious stuff, so nowadays i just pretend i dont hear most the nonsense that comes out from them.

Teach a man to fish and feed him for a life time (or until fish become extinct, which ever occurs first)
The one that threw me was a comment by a couple of female friends of my son to which he had been showing our frogs and some children's pythons:
This house is like a, a, a holiday park!
