    When your retic finds rat scented cardboard..

    Well Caesar was out and found cardboard used to feed Rosey. He went crazy and when I reached over to get him off the cage top he thought my arm was a rat until he bit into. Once he tasted me, he let go but before leaving a nice wound. It bled all over and bruised up nicely.

    The worst part was after 'sampling' my arm and finding it wasnt dinner, he went on the hunt for where this rat went. He went down to the freezer and then to the floor. I had to grab my hook while trying not to leave a blood river where ever i went and guide Caesar back into his cage. His fat behind bent the snake hook too when i tried to help lift him into his cage haha. This morning, he was all fine and greeted me at the front of the cage for petting and sat on my other arm like nothing happened.....proof that no matter how 'friendly' your snake is, when they smell food, their brain turns off lol. Kind of like me with bacon

    Sounds like it got a little messy & wow, even bent the hook!?

    It's also a bit like my dog, who resembles the dog in the kid's movie, "Up"- "SQUIRREL!!!!!!!" It's not just snakes...

    Trying to figure out the angle... but cant. Looks like the bruise is from one side of his mouth as the teeth/mouth pattern is much wider. Glad it was quick and not a fiasco Bro!!!!

    Yikes dude! Glad it only looks as bad as it does. Good thing it was a feed response and not a breeding “imma make you die!” bite!

    Bites from the bigger guys suck. Glad it wasn’t too bad all things considered.

    Edited to add: I also bleed quite well when bitten. It always looked much worse until I got everything cleaned up. Lessons learned.

    Lol yeah, i was looking at it and trying to figure out how he got me too but i cant. All i saw was him spin around and then it was 'OMG, I'm going to be in the newspaper as one of those statistics". Then it was over and he was off back to the cardboard and heading down the side of the cage stack towards the freezer.
