Unhappy My bite free streak is at an end...

Well, it's over. Years of being cautious and succesfully avoiding big bad boid teeth are seemingly in vain!

Tonight, as I was feeding my male IJ, I dumbly put my hand smelling of mice in his cage. I look back now, and see no sense or reason to my actions. Anyway, thinking I was nummers, he bit my middle finger. After bleeding profusely for what seemed like hours, I discovered he got in at least 7 top teeth and 7 bottom teeth on and under my finger.
Fortunately, thanks to razor sharp teeth, it hurt very little and allowed my first concern to be the state of his mouth, as in did he break any teeth. Considering the wounds look clean and he happily accepted and swallowed another rat, I think he did not.

*sigh*.
It's the end, folks, the end!
I've been cursed.

I would rather be bitten by my snakes any day over my parrot Diablo, even by my full grown Amazon Tree Boa. Sure my snakes can break the skin and cause bruising....but Diablo takes out CHUNKS....:medopen:

It is always just a matter of time before you get tagged, I always thought the longer I went without getting bit the sooner my number was coming up. I totally agree a snake bite is not as bad as a bird bite...they try to take the finger right off.

LOL Jake... I've been bit several times by my leos, and I can't say as how it's anything to be scared about No blood, no punctures, doesn't even hurt that much... more like a pinch than anything else...

Zoe -- welcome to the tagged club Which I have yet to join, although I don't imagine that it'll be long after I get my GTP that I do... I believe that Chris' words were something along the lines of "my girlfriend calls him Doc because he's drawn more blood from me than a doctor would ever think of doing... " Hehe... very reassuring, eh?

lol, ya, Jake, I have to agree with clownfishie, although I hope you were joking. lol. I've been bitten a couple times by juvies and adults leos and it's not all that bad. Much better than being bitten by a bearded dragons. lol. but I think it is the strike that is the most scary of the hole thing! That panic reaction that makes you pull back and scare the crap out of the herp.

A bite from your ball python will barely break your skin, so will it really count?
