Really, I was wondering for a couple of reasons. For one, my corn has never shown any sign of agression at all. Ever. For another thing, I've heard so many times "most bites are the result of feeding accidents". I was wondering what "most" means for some of the more docile species.

Yeah, I know any animal has the potential for agression, but what is the reality? Every member of my family has been scratched by both of our cats. I've never been struck at by our corn, or any other snake I've handled. Even wild garters seem content to leave me smelling gross.

1 adult bull snake: "Dozer"; 1.1 juvenile bull snakes: Oscar and Phoebe; 3 baby red-sided garters; 1.1 macklot's pythons
