    POLL: Have you been bit by a BP?

    Simple quesiton. Have you ever been bit by a captive ball python?

    I'm just curious how often it is. I see people talking about it on these forums but I've never seen it happen in person. My sister in law has had one for over 10 years and it's been handled by dozens of people without ever biting a single person.

    I just got me a young fella and he hasn't tried to bite me yet.

    Re: POLL: Have you been bit by a BP?

    Babies are most likely to bite as a self defense mechanism.
    With that in mind I have bred and handled many babies and have been tagged a time or two(ok maybe more than that).

    I brought some babies to the vet today for a health exam for shipping abroad and one tried tagging both of us several times, good fun.

    Re: POLL: Have you been bit by a BP?

    XD I've gotten tagged by one baby and 2 adults. The baby was just pissy, one adult was hungry and I conveniently smelled of rats, and the other adult comes out of her box at feeding time and goes for my face...she got my arm.


    As far as bites go, I'd rather all my snakes bite me all at once than one rat get me. The ball bites make you bleed a wee bit and feel like a flick....Rat bites need stitches! *points to nice shiny scar on hand from angreh mommy rat*

    Never been bit, but I do see it in my near future see as how I currently only have one BP and looking to expand to 6 or so by the end of the year.

    Re: POLL: Have you been bit by a BP?

    I've been bitten by hatchlings and didn't feel a thing. Sub-adults sting a little for a second but that's about it. Never been bitten by an adult though... Tanks a pretty mellow guy!
