Yeah well...there's a difference between a VBB and a known "docile" species. My subject line is misleading, and was meant to be rhetorical. I know snakes bite just as I know cats scratch.
What I really want to know is how likely is it to receive a defensive bite for no apparent reason from a captive-bred adult docile snake.
Let's narrow it down to just corns and ball pythons. Who has received such a bite? Laura-Lee's story is the kind of thing I'm looking for,
1 adult bull snake: "Dozer"; 1.1 juvenile bull snakes: Oscar and Phoebe; 3 baby red-sided garters; 1.1 macklot's pythons
