The poor guy was nervous but.... so down to earth. I'm sorta hoping he sends a strong message to kiddies dreaming of venomous "pets" in the stockings hung by the fireplace.

lol yes I hope anyone viewing realizes the purpose of this video here is to show how tools can be used to safely move a venomous snake in extremely rare situations where there is little other choice (for example, in their basement). Venomous snakes would make a very boring pet since they cannot be handled and unlike a zoo, most keepers won't have antivenin ready to be rushed to the hospital with them in case of an accident. The tool's job is to keep the snake further away from you than it's striking range at all times.
