Rudyís Teeth Are Sharper Than I Imagined

Today I foolishly insisted on doing a water change despite it being dark and Rudy being out and about prowling his enclosure. As often happens, he checked out my hand. But instead of tongue flicking and moving on, he lightly pressed his lips and then latched on much as if my hand was a dead rat. I gingerly extricated myself so as not to injure him but damn, those teeth on Dominican Boas are sharp (and pretty sharply hooked). Got a nice collection of bloody pinholes and some bruising. Oh well, donít be stupid and go against your animals behavior rhythms and body language.
