Re: Unexpected Crotalus Atrox pickup

Retics are amazing snakes I also love burms, but they really are toys compered to hots imo. Our albino male burm bit me when he was around 8ft, complete my fault I didn't tap him when reaching in to get his water bowl. All it took after the bite was to pull a tooth from hand, get the bleeding stopped and a couple of band aids for the cuts. I know I got off light on that occasion and it could have been a lot worse, but if I had made the same mistake with a rattler, rhino, or cobra, well a couple of band aids weren't gonna sort out the problem. Personally I'll never keep hots because of medical reasons but more importantly I don't think I'd ever be up for the mental challenge, like I said if I make a mistake and get bit, then all I do is bring the public down on the venomous community, and that's something I'd never do just for my own selfish reasons of having an animal I know in my heart I was never safe with in the first place
