    Pet Python Bites Owner After 'Confusing Wrist For Snack

    "A tattoo artist, was left with a few puncture wounds after her rescue ball python latched onto her and bit her."

    Sounds like she handled that like she should have, and didn't hold anything against the snake

    One thing I've noticed over the years is that a neglected/rescue snake is much more likely to tag you due to a food bite. Once they're being properly kept and any physical injuries or illnesses have been dealt with, the snake's appetite comes back with a vengeance.

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Here's the info..... Closes soon, pretty far away for me but if anybody is close this could be interesting when it re-opens in the spring

    "
    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) A rare, two-headed copperhead snake is on display at the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort.

    The center says the snake will be shown to the public until Nov. 27, when it closes for the winter.

    The snake is only a month old and is on display from 10 a.m to 4 p.m every Tuesday through Saturday. The center closes seasonally each year to allow the staff to maintain and update exhibits and facilities.

    During this year's closure, center staff plan to expand the existing indoor snake exhibit. The center is located off U.S. 60 in Frankfort. A bronze deer statue marks the entrance of the main Kentucky Fish and Wildlife campus."
