My savanna monitor bit me on the back of the neck a week ago. I was tagged by a pet shop burm about a month ago, right between the eyes, and a full grown black and gold tegu almost ripped my finger off a week before the burm got me. I gotta stop telling people to bite me, I think the animals understand english, lol. Never been tagged by my balls, bci got me once by accident (my fault of course).

Hey guys,
Just be glad your bites didnt end up like this...

This is a bite from a neonate Intergrade Copperhead. Only one fang penatrated the tip of my right index finger yet the swelling went down to about the wrist and took up half on the hand! Hurt like hell, belive you me!!!!

Also, I have lost full feeling on the tip of that finger. Its comeing back slowly but may never be 100 percent again.

Just something for everyone who has ever contemplated keeping hots to think about. This is a bite from a baby of one of the renouned low potenacny snake sp yet the results were horribly painfull and lasted a long while(about a week). Hell, they are still lasting if you count the lack of feeling I still have!

Welp, hope ya like the pic!

Peace,
J

I routinely get tagged by one of mine that will only eat in a wee little cell phone box (SFE - I put my warm, stinking-like-mouse hand in when there is a mouse inside, box only being the size of my hand...lol ) and it tickles more than getting hit by a 3 or 4 foot boa They have very large teeth considering their size! I'd say it counts!

I've been bitten more times than I care to try and count...lol Nothing ever serious though, hope to keep it that way. Almost took a feeding hit (not an SFE) from a 14 footer a week ago though That would've busted my wee little arm for sure

Hey DVS ... honestly, I have been bitten by my rock several times and it did not compared to a bite (constricted) by my carpet python ..

Nice long teeth on those guys .. althoug it was over a year ago so i don't quite remember well .. i have once been bitten by a nine foot retic on the hand THROUGH A LEATHER glove and he still make me bleed everywhereand my hand was fairly inflamed .. that was pretty kool although I can not even imagine the pain without the glove..

Although I think nothing beats a varanid bite or even worst a crocodilian bite..

He he he...... I was just wondering what I can expect when my little guy gets bigger. I've tried to see his teeth so far when he yawns but don't see very much of anything right now since he's still so young..... unless there recessed or something?

I hope I don't find out anytime soon, but then again I guess now would be better then later.

I joined that list a long time ago. It's hard not to get bitten when your dealing with Nerodia though.
