I've been bit by quite a few wild snakes (garters, rats, and racers) The only real bites I ever got were from a 9ft burm across the hand and a 13ft retic on the elbow. Those two I'll never forget.

I've been bitten by lots of things- not as many as Roy (maybe not even Jordan as he seems to have a knack for getting bitten:-)), and nothing on my list would compare to Chuck's!

I've been bitten more times than I can remember.
I got nailed by a 3' gator which had quite a grip but the worst bites have definitely been from monitors...niles and waters.
They've got a great grip,razor teeth and a tendency to slice rather than merely puncture by pulling their teeth through your flesh once they've got you.
I've only been permanently scarred by one though...medium sized water monitor.

I've been bitten by alot of herps, I think the two worst were a 5.5 ft Nile (required hospitalization) and a 14 foot rock python.
But I seem to get bitten alott from the line of work that i do. I'd bite someone too if some moron let a mouse chew on my spine or broke a beer bottle on my back. ( a little venting, sorry)
But I think those two were the most memerable

I think my leopard gecko bites me everytime I pick him up, and my fish bite me anytime I put my hand in or near the water

bearded dragons: it was a love bite LOL. Was hand feeding and it missed the food and got my finger. Pinched but no blood.

iguana: coulda been worse. It was a warning bite.

Haven't been bit by either of my snakes but wish the BRB would hurry up and get it over with so I'm not so jumpy LOL.
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with stupidity

Once I was bitten by my roughneck monitor, who happened to have climbed up the outside of my siberian chipmunk's cage and was trying to eat him! She only got the tip of my finger thank goodness, and it was actually rather hilarious: this happened on the night of a first date with a guy I'd just met and he witnessed all this take place -- the funny part was, he was freaking out and running around like a chicken with it's head cut off hollering, "OH MY GOD!!! Are you alright?!?! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!" LMAO
Needless to say, I gave him the boot soon after (what a geek) and also needless to say, I haven't let my monitor roam around in the same room as my chipmunk ever since! (duh)
Even shiny fruit may be rotten at the core.

one of my 8' boas hit me with a feeding response. Surgery and 6 weeks of rehab to make my wrist work again. A few other but that was the worst by far. Fast hands and never going to be bit, lol, thats fuuunnnnnny, keep dreaming.

I have been bitten by hundreds of herps (and other animals).

A 7' colombian boa struck me in the face, an 8' anaconda bit me on the thumb and started to tork while it constricted my arm for about 10 minutes before I managed to pry it off (PAINFUL!), a 4.5' american alligator bit my hand and started to roll (my fingers were twisted out of shape for almost a week, but luckily there was no major damage due to a friend holding the animal so it couldn't keep rolling), a 3.5' argus monitor grabbed my middle finger and sliced through the nail to the bone (I bled like crazy), a copperhead nailed me with both fangs on my right pointer finger. These are just a few of the bites that immediately come to mind.
