The ignorance on this board is astounding. It has little to do with the snake and everything to do with how the snake is raised. My adder sleeps at the foot of my 5yr old daughter's bed every night. She plays with him, pulls on his tail, tries to ride him like a horse sometimes. And he just acts like it doesn't bother him. Death Fangie (what my daughter named him) would never hurt anyone and he is the sweetest snake I've ever owned.
More people get bit by garden snakes every year but the media loves to portray vipers as the bad snakes. In the 80's it was cobras and mambas that were bad.
To many people in trailer parks thinking owning a viper is cool and don't know what they're doing is giving us good viper owners a bad name. fricking liberals!
