I just can't hold my tongue any longer. What the actual....
I can't take it anymore.
If you want to cut your eggs, whatever. Do it. I don't do it myself, but if you want to, that's your own personal choice and completely up to you, I won't think anything less of you (not that anybody would care).
But why, WHY do people do this!?!?!?!
Apparently someone is mad that I linked to their public photos, so let's just describe them. One snake appears to be hanging halfway out of the egg with unabsorbed yolk and it's umbilical cord still attached. The eggs look like they were hacked open with a chainsaw. There is one with a baby in it's egg with at least 1/3 of the egg sawed away, thought the snake is still inside of it's membrane, (or, must be shine from the egg goo actually - sorry) as there are 3 thick veins still laying on top of the poor baby snake.
When asked why do they hack them open all the way like that, they said they do it when the snake is likely to emerge...
Also...there are COBRAS playing in the grass!? What if they gets away? You can't just pick them up? Sure maybe there's a snake hook handy but a lot can happen, snakes are FAST! What if you are unable to recover it and completely lose track of it and it comes into contact with another human
HULKSMASH I just seriously can't take it. To each their own I guess...but seriously. Letting deadly snakes play in the grass is what makes every one of us look bad.

Wow those are 2 very different issues in one post lol. Cutting eggs has been a source of controversy for as long as I can remember. Some do, some don't. But regardless what side of the issue your on, i would hope that most people would agree that if you insist on cutting eggs for what ever motivation that you would at Least be a little more carefull than to butcher them like that. As far as the Naja shots go. It's hard without having some context to judge exactly what's going on there. It is possible that those pictures were takin in some type of outdoor enclosure designed for displays or photographs. But I would agree that for the most part taking animals that are potentially very dangerous just to shoot a couple of pictures is a VERY IRRESPONSIBLE!! Action. One that I wish people would carefully consider the potential consequences of before doing.Visit us for all your reptile housing needs at http://www.herphouses.com/

Their profile picture is of themselves with a Gaboon Viper a couple of feet from their face. They are laying flat on their belly with their legs crossed, so if they had to get up quickly it would take them a few seconds...
So based on that, I can't imagine much safety protocols are in place with the cobras.
But for their own safety, I sure hope they're being smarter than they appear to be.

And yes I would agree that it is unlikely that they have taken any type of safety protocols for taking these animals outside and potentially exposing members of the public to them.Visit us for all your reptile housing needs at http://www.herphouses.com/

Again someone doesn't want their public photos linked to...
Just had to vent my frustration somewhere.

Ahh, i had a feeling that's who you're talking about
In their defense [keeping it anonymous], they have been keeping hots for a long time, and while some people may not agree with their ways of keeping [everybody does things others don't like], he/she is a responsible hots keeper.
I hate the fact that people cut eggs....it allows weaker genetics to survive as opposed to only letting the strong hatch... and i hate the video where the breeders cut the actual snake while "hatching" them...[Why do you think i keep boas? lol ]
Also, that egg that they did cut, hatched a day or so later, so it wasn't cut too early.
