Handling venomous/poisonous animals is dangerous and should only be performed by licensed professionals.
Owning venomous snakes, reptiles, etc. might not be legal in your State/County/City. Please contact your local DNR for more information.
Venomous snakes and other dangerous reptiles are beautiful and interesting creatures that have a place in the reptile hobby. Vision Products is proud to provide safe, strong, and secure enclosures that can be depended upon to keep dangerous animals and the people caring for them safe from harm.
We at Vision Products believe that there is a level of responsibility with keeping dangerous reptiles, which is different from keeping non-dangerous pets. Dangerous animals should only be kept by experienced practitioners with proper training.
Vision Cages frequently appear in videos, social media posts, blogs, and websites that feature the care of venomous reptiles in captivity. Vision Cages are recognized by many zoos, researchers, antivenom producers, herpetologists, educators, and hobbyists as the enclosure that is best suited for managing these dangerous animals… especially venomous snakes (rattlesnakes, vipers, cobras, adders, asps, copperheads, boomslangs, mambas, etc…)
Custom Cages is happy that Vision Cages are valued by the venomous snake community of keepers and researchers, but we also know that it is vital that everyone keeping, or interested in keeping, venomous animals know that there is no enclosure that will make a dangerous animal-safe. The security provided by a Vision Cage ends the moment that the sliding doors are opened or left unsecured.
Custom Cages cannot control how our products are shown in a video, pictured on a website, or described in a blog post or article produced by a person other than ourselves. The opinions and practices of these creators, educators, and entertainers are their own, and they do not represent our company.
If you are using, or are intending to use, a Vision Cage or other Custom Cages enclosure for the purpose of housing a dangerous reptile, here are some best practices that we advise.
- Keep the enclosure in an escape-proof room with a locking door.
- Use a lock on enclosure doors.
- Provide enough room outside of the enclosure to be able to move a safe distance away from an animal that suddenly moves from or strikes from inside an open enclosure.
- Use safe handling tools to move dangerous animals into and out of the enclosure.
- Never free-handle a dangerous animal… especially a venomous snake.
- Do not keep a dangerous animal in a damaged enclosure.
Custom Cages will continue to produce high-quality enclosures that are safe, strong, and dependable. Please use them appropriately and make your personal safety (and the safety of others) a priority when using the enclosure to house a dangerous animal.
