I have been bitten more times then I can count. Most colubrid bites are not that painful and clear up within 3 days. Some bites can be horrific. I have not been tagged by a venomous snake as of yet, but I have many friends who have. My worst bite to date came from a 17 burm. He swallowed my right hand and tried to pull me into the cage with him. Very painful and quite bloody. Below is an example of a western diamond back bite. Enjoy! =)
