I haven't been bitten yet either, but me and my bp are also a pretty new couple. I was so proud, though...last night, I was taking off his shed left by bad shed from being boarded, and he didn't even make a move to strike. He just turned his head around calmly and watched me peel his skin off...

I have a baby corn that bites me at least twice every time I take him out I cant say that I take him out every day so I went with every week or less although its more than that.
If youre happy and ya know it slap your face!

My corn took a lunge at me once, but missed by a mile... I wondered how he gets the mice on the first try but missed my "pinkie" hehe

I have a system for socializing my snakes. .I have a glove that I wear when I handle the neonates. I pick them up every day and take a lot of hits. After a few dozen hits they get the idea (conditioning) to not works for me and mine. I still have problems with the BRBs and the Candoias, but time will tell

arachnomania: I hear that tarantula bites are about as bad as a hamster bite. If that's the case...OUCH!!!
