Lovely bite

My young female redtail was sitting in her enclosure last night when I went to change her water bowl. I guess she thought I was food and took a chomp at my hand. Surprisingly didn't hurt at all. Bled in spots but that was about it. I don't have a jerk-back reaction at all to snake bites for some reason, I'm just like "oh look, got bit again." Gonna start feeding her by just leaving the prey in there instead of putting it near her with tweezers.... Here's the pics:

The culprit:

Darn snake!

hehe, i was at work handling this cute little rosy boa. my bf was there waiting for my shift to end so we could head off to DnD. so i was talking about the little guy to him and a couple of other people. the little guy bit me, i must have still had a bit of a mousy scent on me from earlier, and i didn't even notice until he started constricting around my finger. i calmly said "oh look, he's trying to eat me. how cute.." the bf jumped back another three feet and cried out "Oh Dear God!" lol, the look on his face was hysterical.

Lol... my pine snake got me the other night.. she has a wicked temper, and i had opened her tank to feed her, so when i turned around to get her rat, i felt something pulling on my arm... she got my upper arm, and she had a good grip.. kept pulling and tugging for about 30 seconds before she let go.. it didnt hurt too much, but its still kinda sore..

I've been bit a few times, but nothing serious at all.
My BRB got me once, just a lil nip no blood.
Went over to SOMEONE's house, and all in one night I got it from his BRB, and a couple corns LOL. Actually didn't hurt, couple bloodspots, but nothing compared to the pic.....these are all just wee nips.

However, my iguana has gotten me twice.
Once on the palm, the second on the finger. The finger one did some nerve damage to the tip. No scaring tho
