venom proof gloves

I just saw this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_MV4...eature=related on youtube and wondered a few things.
1. It kinda looks mean to really force the snake to bite that much, i mean that snake is really being forced to bite.
2. Its nice that the snake is so defiant in biting the human, for i saw gaboons bite much quicker than that, i mean my snakes would bite quicker if i pissed them off like that.
3. lastly and most importantly i dont beleive that that test proves to much. I may be wrong, but a snakes bite force would be much more powerful if it struck at you, and since most bites occur when the snake strikes and not when you put your finger in its mouth than it doesnt prove much about the gloves. I mean the snake is a baby, which means it has smaller fangs, it doesnt strike which i believe takes away a lot of the momentum a snake gets when it bites which means the bite was much weaker than if it struck.

anyhow what do you guys think about this test of the gloves?
