I've only been bitten if i hand feed my leos. Which that doesn't hurt. My baby corn snakes have bitten me also and i just sit there and laugh at them.

My top three offenders are; 1) Male Mexican Black Kingsnake
2) Female Brazilian Rainbow Boa
3) Male Mid Baja Rosy Boa
Also though I've never been nailed by my ATBs they both takes lots of shots at me.
Cheers,
Trevor

My baby Nile is the cheif culprit. He is getting better though, he has doubled in size since I got him and the bites are painful now. My albino Cal King used to bite all the time but he is just flighty now and not a biter. The only bad bite I've gotten was from a male burm I used to have, all ten feet of him. He got me across the hand and it was extremly painful.

I get bit almost everyday. Some of the more interesting. Took a bite on my right hand in 2000 from a 17 foot Burmese Python. He swallowed my right hand from the side and tried to pull me in the cage. I had to wrestle him out so we could get my hand back. In 2002 a 15 foot Burmese Python got my left hand from the front. She swallowed it up to the wriest, then constricted around my legs. It turned into about a five minute ordeal. My life was never in danger, but it sucked wrestling my hand out of her mouth. Once I had the use of both hands, it was pretty easy to unwrap her. That one did a little nerve damage, my left hand tingled for about 3 months after. Also I have taken bites from a 5 foot Nile, a 3 foot Caiman, and a 4 foot Alligator, and a 12 foot anaconda. To this point, I have not been hit by a venomous snake and I am completely lost count of the bites I have taken from small snakes, geckos, and things of that nature.

I've been tagged a few times by my snakes, but mostly the neonates. Furious, one of our vietnamese blue beauties, is the prime culprit, followed by the lavender king. I think the baby corns might have, but their bite is so pathetic, you can't really be sure

Never been bitten, but I've only had my ball python for a few months. She is so docile, she'll probably never bite. *knocks on wood*

I've taken quite a few bites,but among the nastier ones have been: 3' water monitor(by far the worst---permanent scar,you could hear the teeth scraping underlying bone),5.5' retic(bled a lot),3' alligator(had to pry his jaws to escape),Amazon tree boa(vicious little demon---repeated strikes).
Took a few good ones from nile monitors too.

Nothing that deterred me from coming back for more though.

Damm Chuck, I'm just curious how bad was the nile bite and how much damage did it do?

He got me on the arm, about 2 to 3” above the wriest, so it really wasn’t that bad. I would say the deepest cut was about 1/4” and there were about 6 or 7 lacerations that ran about 2” long. Didn’t require stitches and virtually no scaring. If he would have gotten a figure, he may have taken one off. That 3 foot caiman got my little finger on my left hand. He grabbed it good, shook it, then rolled. I was surprised there wasn’t more damage then there was from that one.
