How about letting the users vote for what you should do next? Start a poll with four options and we'll pick one, that should motivate you. Looking forward to the next video.

Let me know what you would like to see and I will do that. Anything that is reasonable and would have the most educational value.

I know there are many videos on this topic on Youtube, but a decent video on probing and popping would be great.

Then if someone asks for advice, we can simply refer them to the video.

I was also thinking sexing when I was at the top of the page. Would like to see a technical step-by-step video on probing.

That sounds like a fantastic plan. Thanks for everyones input, I'm sure that must have motivated bv quite a bit. Maybe add in on how to safely probe a tubed snake (not necessarily venomous) aswell?

Well perhaps if this is a video on sexing snakes how about crude sexing by tail length and spur size in certain species. Might be a bit of a stretch but if you can that would round it up nicely.

Arno I would include in one of your posts or your videos that you are in no way responsible for any injury to any person or reptile through the the knowledge gained that you are providing. There are people out there that might want to take you for a ride for following your advice and getting Bitten etc. I am not saying this will happen, but things do go wrong.

My disclaimer should be "if you are an idiot dont watch this".

I grew up when we did not have disclaimers, because we knew when something was stupid to try.
