Being licensed to do "something", no matter what it is: flying an airplane, being a doctor, engineer, train conductor, soldier, or a DWA keeper has nothing to do at all with being elite. It's all about taking the right steps to become proficent in a task or trade and having peer review of your proficiency. No one is exempt from any of these tasks/trade, just that the individual lacks the motovation to assend to that level.

That's what annoys me! Whats wrong with demanding that people read books to learn more about what they claim is a hobby they love?

Cheers!

There's lots I could rant on about, but I'd just get myself in trouble (as usual).

I am saying nothing aswell as sometimes it gets blown out of proportion

I must admit, I do watch a lot of viperkeepers videos and I listen very carefully to what he say's as I should be getting my first 'hot' in the spring. I think he is very good at what he does and I have the utmost respect for him.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AL!!!!!

That's another reason I said what I said... Everybody is afraid to speak whats on their mind on many issues before us(world). Debate is good, silence is bad. Some issues are very difficult to resolve, it's ok to disagree, just keep it respectable.

Thanks...keep in mind...

I'm not perfect or infalable and have been wrong many times in life. I just observe the data (feedback), analyze, and come to conclusion. I spent almost $800 on reference books last year, plus read many peer review papers publised in journals on the subject. No reason every other hobbiest cannot either invest in their own reference library or at least spend time at a public library.

Cheers!

AL, I do respect your knowledge, experience, and your snake handling skills. No question there. Your snakes are some of the most beautiful snakes I personally have ever seen.
BUT, to see a grown man cry and whine like a bitch the way you did there makes me want to vomit

pathetic.

I will eat my hat( or maybe my hairband, lol) when I find a public library in the UK that has a decent book on Venomous snakes. I love reading but find amazon and nhbc are the way to go for books in the UK.
