i don't even keep snakes and I was hit by my friends amazon tree boa. YA little demon, but i was attempting to free handle the aggressive thing and i had it by the head and than he managed to slip an inche forward while my friend was showing me a pict in his carpet python book and than got hit. it was only a nip though.
but i have also been bitten by a garter snake when i was out catching them when i was about 13.
But i have been bitten by a crested gecko, 2 leopard geckos, 2 times by my chameleon and once by my friends chamelon. I have also been bitten by a dog when i was little. and yes i am not a big fan of small dogs and i like large snakes.
IF IT CAN'T KILL YOU, WHY BE AFRAID?
