Ive only been biten a few times. My first ball python got me one on the cheek. He was about 4 ft but it was more of a surprise than pain. Ive been bitten by my other ball quite a few times, he was quite the little dickens (pretty sure its because its previous owner would feed him white mice on his white towel as a subtrate, so he struck at what he could because he wasnt to good at catching the mouse).

I've been bitten by anoles, leopard geckos, other geckos, MANY garter snakes, plated lizards, an Amazon tree boa and my Borneo short-tailed python. The Borneo was the worst, it barly even left a mark but there was alot of blood. And the tree boa sure had long teeth! I haven't had any major bites yet...

I JUST got bitten today. It was from our new male VBB. he was sweet as pie when we took him home yesterday from the show. Then, today, I lifted the lid to his terrarium to be greeted by some tail whipping and a bite that broke the skin on my right pointer finger. Even after I put the lid back on, he continued to lash at the sides and lid of the terrarium, what a little psycho! *LOL*

This would be the 2nd time in my entire life that a snake has tagged me. The 1st time was when I was a kid and I picked up a wild Garter that happened to be lying in the road. I didn't even notice it bit me until I released it again. I looked at the back of my right hand to find 4 nice little bleeding wounds. *L*

I've been bit (dry bite) yesterday by my Usumbara baboon. First time i've ever got bit by a tarantula in 15 years and beleive me they had plenty of oportunities. I'm actually pretty proud of that bite as I now know first hand what it truly feels like.

I've been bitten 2 times. the first by a 9 foot boa constrictor and the second by my 2 foot caiman. those two bits were painful enough to last me a couple of years.
REPTILES RULE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
