Into the society!



Just got tagged--my first snake bite! Young ball python named Battleship. I apparently startled him, but he still looks like he's out for blood, so I may give him a rat tomorrow. Smile I'm not going to lie...I'm kind of excited.

Welcome to the club. I've lost count of how many times I've been struck. As you can probably attest, it really doesn't hurt because their teeth are so small and sharp. It is that quick movement that makes you jump.

I did make a little yelp but it hurt less than a pinch since it's so quick. I imagine an adult bp could pack a more powerful punch. But honestly, my cat and dogs do more damage. : P People are so silly to be afraid of snakes. And before anyone says try getting bitten by a gtp or atb, *most* people are equally afraid of corn snakes, milk snakes, ball pythons, and others that are small and can't do more damage than a cat.

MAD--if you can believe it, I actually have a phobia of rodent's mouths. I can't SEE what their teeth are doing, so I'm always convinced they are about to bite me. But I am not afraid of my snakes. So yes, it counts!

I still pull when bite, and I also lost count of how many time. It's just like a biking term.... those that have, those that will

Haha, yes my friend says there are two kinds of snake keepers: those who have been bitten, and those who will be bitten

I never have a problem with my normal rats biting me but the little African punks always seem to get me at least once while I'm cleaning their racks. Aside from that I think I've been bitten by just about everything at this point... Balls, boas, corns, retics, burms...
