eh?

Anyway, I've been bitten twice by baby IJs, once by an adult IJ (feeding mistake) and once by a 4ft boa that didn't like the way she was being handled. None of them hurt, really.

I've been bitten by a 3 foot corn, right in between my left index and middle finger, this was actually a feeding mistake. The funniest bites have been from a 5 week old leo (my blizzard het) and a juvi mexican milk. I say they were funny because animals that small acting tough make me giggle - all they succeeded in doing was bumping against my hand, they couldn't even bite. I did however finish what I had to do quickly and leave them alone to calm down and get over the stress.

Oh, a gopher snake! Pituophis melanoleuces, I think...

xxbad 10-17-03 04:44 PM

i know it is funny when those little animals try to act tough

I've been bitten a bunch of times all over my hands and arms by snakes. The worst one was when I was taunting a WC garter snake I was keeping with a goldfish. The snake missed the fish and took my index finger to about the first knuckle. I was young and kinda shocked so I sort of shook my hand then flicked him on the head. I relaxed after a minute, laughed at myself and then removed the snake. A friend of mine almost lost a finger to his adult iguana but it didn't seem to bother him much for a guy that can't tolerate any snake being out of it's cage in the same room he's in.

I've been bitten by my 4' California King, right on the middle finger. He bit HARD, so it bled pretty good. I've also received superficial tags from one of the blue beauties and a baby kenyan... which was a joke. :D

i have heard at the petstore this guy told me about these green anacondas they can reach from a tree and pull a bird flying in the air and this guy got bit by one of these snakes had no use in his thumb anymore

JD@reptiles 10-17-03 06:22 PM

i get bit about 10 times a day by snakes, and 1-2 times a day by lizards...

mykee 10-17-03 06:26 PM

Luckily, I have never yet been bitten by one of my balls. Hopefully, If I keep on my toes and know my snakes, I'll never be bitten.

Do you mean today? LOL I breed Cal-Kings for starters. I'll show people what it feels like so they won't be afraid when they are considering purchase of a neonate. As far as the adults go I freehand them & will hang on to the specimen with one hand & clean with the other. This can lead to several tags as they sometimes have a feeding response from the scents of the other snakes. I have one that is a cannibal afterall heh heh. I got bit like 3 times the other day by a baby Jungle Carpet Python while handling him. He wasn't being mean, he was just hungry & kept opening his mouth on my arm & then releasing. I must have tasted good that day because a yearling male Childrens Python thought about eating me also, wrapping tight around my fingers while starting to "nose" my arm. Mind you that one usually thinks he is a "Scrub" not a Childrens LOL I have lots of snakes that will bite you in an instant if you're not carefull, usually nothing serious. Ask "Invictus" & "Red Dragon" how pleasant "Yolk" my L.Texas Rat can be when disturbed. Stands on his tail & throws open mouth strikes, as does my "Screamer" yearling JCP female from Ryan & Sheila (you forgot to mention that eh guys, LOL) she is from the "Chandler Cannibal Line" afterall though LOL. The Cal-kings will get me good by surprise every now & then though. The last time I got a eally good one everyone was so amused we took pictures LOL. My very first snake ever to boot! I guess thats why his name is "Schizo" LOL blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda
