There are two types of snake keepers...

those who have been bite and those that are going to get bite. Well I finally joined the ladder this evening. Funny, I always thought it was goin to be my Emmerald that would get me, turns out my new Amel Corn liked me more then the pinkie I just dropped in her tank. I know its not much, but a bite is a bite. So there, I'm in the club!
Cheers,
Trevor

He he... welcome to the club. Last night I was bit by my male Banana Cal King. This is the LAST snake of mine that I expected to be nailed by.

I had a gig at this smokey blues bar and came home to watch SNL. I grabbed a few bins of snakes and sat down to watch. There I am holding this guy for a few minutes and I feel him pecking at me. It was as if he wasn't sure if he should eat me or not. It must have been the smokey smell or something, because I hadn't handled a mouse all day and I hadn't been musked on by another snake.... strange.

I've got a buddy that has two cal kings and he makes sure he washes his hands everytime no matter what or he'll get it.

Well, Ive been bitten to many to count .. although I have only been consticted twice .. by a 7 foot coastal carpet (grabed my palm instead of the rat .. It was kool and a rainbow boa .. wich has just got in his mind that anything that moves is food (he constricted already about 5 ppl)...

But i did get a new special bite this weekend - one in the face .. I am quite proud - yeah right .. by my new "tamed" jungle carpet python..

I hope all of you guys are gonna survive!

Dom

I've only been bitten once at home all the rest at a pet store or other peoples snakes. The one at home was a feeding error.

i don't even keep snakes and I was hit by my friends amazon tree boa. YA little demon, but i was attempting to free handle the aggressive thing and i had it by the head and than he managed to slip an inche forward while my friend was showing me a pict in his carpet python book and than got hit. it was only a nip though.
but i have also been bitten by a garter snake when i was out catching them when i was about 13.

But i have been bitten by a crested gecko, 2 leopard geckos, 2 times by my chameleon and once by my friends chamelon. I have also been bitten by a dog when i was little. and yes i am not a big fan of small dogs and i like large snakes.

Funny i'm not a fan of being bit but if i am i don't care much i've never been hurt from a bite infact sometimes i don't even notice it until there is either a row of bleeding dots or two alligned dots or unless i feel the snake move really fast all of a sudden for no reason at all its weird. But its cool showing the battle scars and making up this huge and cool story to go along with it. So enjoy the bites for as long as possible just make sure no ones around to witness them so that way they can't say your lying lol anyways may the bites still continue. Have fun. Miller

I sometimes feel like snake bait

I too have been bitten more times than I can count, thats why I'm scared to keep hots.
Especially by babies. I have a rat snake that practicly weened itself on my hand. It would bite at me as I walked by the tank he was in, bite me when I picked him up, handle well, then turn around and take one last shot before I could get my hand out of the tank after putting him down.
Now he is the biggest baby and one of my faves to handle.
The Florida King I have is a whole'nother story.

I'm also in the latter. Stuck my hand into my bp enclosure, and didn't notice my 200g male sitting on the rock with his head high as can be. He hit and retrieted before I had a chance to pull away. IT HURTS!!! Blood too. Oh well, my fault.
