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

    Once, by my youngest BP. It was at night and I guess she was hungry. She pulled back right away. It didn't hurt at all.
    Just surprised me.

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

    Ball python bites are like kisses compared to taking mama beast boa away from her puppys. I couldnt imagine all those breeders with the really big mamas and do it year round pulling teeth out of my leg is only cool like once a year.

    Dont buy the snake if you cant cash the check when he deposits it you wont hold it ever agian. I have had 2 people buy boas and bring them back after 3 years of being good just because they got lit up once. Ball pythons are different they act more like cats a bite is like a scratch from a house cat and same purpose intended when either one "scratches" you it means "back up biggin im strapped".

    i have to admit, when the BRB bit me, it caused me to be a little more cautious and listen to her more, if she hisses, leave her alone, or go slower lol.
    it knocked down my confidence a little tho, but i know that she knows when im tensing up lol... she tenses up double time... so i have to totally chill when im holding her

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

    I have been bit a lot. My adult male gets in this ravenous feeding mode every couple months (not saying he eats every couple of months) he just goes through a period where he becomes a super aggressive feeder and there is NO stopping him. Then he snaps out of it and is fine again. Always been like that.

    He has bitten me many times. Still better than getting bit by any rodent any day!

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

    So far the only time she's tried to bite me is when I was putting her in a bag to bring her home the first day. Five days after that and she's barely recoiled towards me.

    Though be it, I've only had her since February.

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

    I just got a ball yesterday (a friend left the country in a hurry, family issues) its only 2 months old and im a bit nervous about handling her, I've handled much bigger snakes than her but i knew they were "tame". Basically im asking how much does it hurt when you get tagged, how often it might happen and does anyone have any advice to help me get over this "fear"?

    Only once....... I was feeding my snakes and my male Ghost got me the second I opened his tub. My other hand was on top of his tub.
    Guess he was real hungry It was my fault 4sure. Now I keep my hands lower and pay attention

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

    I got a new BP in 9 days ago, she is an 06 and I think she wants to eat my face!!!!!! She has eaten twice so far, looks like i'll try in another few days but I know she's gonna rail my A@# sooner or later, probly sooner though.

    But to the question at hand, I have been biten a few times.
