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

    Been tagged once and hissed at alot (by the same BP). Also have a milksnake that used to latch onto the end of my finger and chew like she was nursing blood... which actually she was.

    Never had one bite and constrict, but this BP was defensive biting, definitely handler error on my part.

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

    I used to work in a pet shop so yea...I've been bitten quite a few times. Just by babies though. Actually the worst injury I ever got from a BP bite was when my co worker saw the baby about to take a snap at me and gallantly tried to yank me out of the way, smacking my head on the cage door. Once I quit laughing I told him I'd have rather been bit, LOL.

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

    I put my hand too close while feeding, so it was an accident and all my fault. my BP has never hissed or struck at me on purpose.

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

    Ive been tagged maybe 10 or so times by the balls, not bad condsidering I have a moderate sized collection ( greater than 1 but less than 100.)

    Although I have to say never have I been bit by a ball I have owned for more than a year.

    A couple of times I was "gummed" by them. They strike open their mouth but no teeth. Kinda weird... anyone else experience this?

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

    Not yet

    But I picked up my 3rd BP today so the odds are increasing!

    The closest I came was when I got my first BP, Samson. The day I got him I was faffing around inside his cage moving moss around etc, and I got a little close to the opening of his hide and he zapped out at me. He did not get close but she scared the begeezers outta me on the account of him being so quick....

    Since then nothing, a couple of hissing fits but that's about it
