I saw a show on Animal Planet called "Fatal Attraction" that had a story about someone who died from a venomous snake bite. She was keeping around ten hots, including a gaboon viper, rhino viper, monocled cobra, and a rattlesnake of some sort. The show spent the whole time talking about how dangerous these animals are, and on the same episode, told a story where monitors ate their owner. While the show had valid points, it also made the animals out to be evil and the people who own them to be weirdo freaks. It even tried to hint that beardies are dangerous! Needless to say, I'm a little miffed with Animal Planet. I wish they wouldn't equate reptile owners with the people who keep tigers as lapdogs and such. Of course there are risks with owning venomous reptiles and they shouldn't be kept by anyone who isn't extremely experienced, but maybe we should stop vilifying the animals in whose nature it is to be wary of something bigger than they are and start holding responsible the people who don't know how to care for them.
