Lovely bite

My young female redtail was sitting in her enclosure last night when I went to change her water bowl. I guess she thought I was food and took a chomp at my hand. Surprisingly didn't hurt at all. Bled in spots but that was about it. I don't have a jerk-back reaction at all to snake bites for some reason, I'm just like "oh look, got bit again." Gonna start feeding her by just leaving the prey in there instead of putting it near her with tweezers.... Here's the pics:

The culprit:

Darn snake!
