What has bitten you?

I thought this would be an interesting thread, maybe get a little conversation going on here. So, to get to the point, here are my four questions:

1. What is the worst snake bite you have recieved.
2. What is the least painful snake bite you have recieved

3. What is the worst lizard bite you have taken.
4. What is the least painful lizard bite you have recieved.

I thought this would be an interesting topic, pictures are welcome

I have only ever been bit by two of my snakes. My cal kingsnake and one of my male ball pythons.
The bit from the ball python was worse.

1. What is the worst snake bite you have recieved.

Never had anything bad. Been chomped by Brazilian Rainbow boas and an Irian Jaya Carpet, couldn't even feel them until after the fact, bled freely. Small specimens.

I'm a lot more careful with arboreals because of their bigger teeth, so I haven't been hit yet.

2. What is the least painful snake bite you have recieved

Baby Brazilian Rainbow. Feeding error.

3. What is the worst lizard bite you have taken.

That's easy. Sub-adult Frilled Dragon. Lots of jaw power, huge teeth complete with fangs, and a nasty, flesh-sawing shake of the head. Caused an oblique wound that probably should have been stitched. I was examining its cage-mate when it decided to leap 9 inches and grab my finger.

My second-worst lizard bite was also from an overly enthusiastic Frilled.

4. What is the least painful lizard bite you have recieved.

Uroplatus phantasticus bite. Feeding error.

1. Asian spitting cobra - was outfield that day (when i was in the army), went to take a piss and saw some black snake..."cool WC i thought". brushed open the bushes to see what it really is....WAM!!!! apparently it was right next to me and i didn't see it cos there was too much vegetation...wasn't the most painful bite...but was the one i feared for my life the most...lucky i got taken to the medics quickly and then to the camp base "clinic"...after all that...it was a dry bite...whew!

2. taiwanese beauty...my fault...talking to friend while hand feeding..hahahahaha...really stupid!!!!

I was bit several times by my burm (when she was a hachling) to tame her out. she wasent more that 2 feet so every time i got but is was alwas more supprising that painfull. and once by a 8 foot burm at a pet store. i was at my local pet store and i know the manager there and he said that he had a burm in back that someone gave up. so when he took it out of the sack the first thing it did is go straight for my hand and put a nice scar there. after that i didnt feel like adopting him so much.

Well only 1 snake has ever bitten me. It was a Black racer. It hurt, but not too bad.

worst lizard bite would have to be an adult green iguana. That made me bleed.

Least painful lizard bite would be a brown anole. You can't even feel those things.
