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

    I just got bitten a few hours ago! It was feeding time and I was placing her in her feed tray - which she knows - and she was so enthusiastic that she mistook my hand for a rat. (I never touched the food but she probably just saw 'warm moving thing, YUM')

    I yelped but it didn't hurt much actually. The snake let go and looked all bewildered for a minute! Then she found the rat and ate without further problems while I found a band-aid. It's all my fault, really, for getting too close to her hungry snout

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

    Never yet bitten by a Ball python, young or old. If I ever do get tagged, it'll either be by a young hatchling when I get into breeding, or by my pissy male het albino. He hasn't even bluff-struck yet, but he flinches and hisses whenever he's bothered or touched, so we shall see.

    I have, however been tagged by an adult corn snake. The shock of actually being bitten bothered me more than the bite.

    Yes, and it scared the crap out of me. You want to see something amazing? Look up the word "scared" in the Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary!!!!!!

    Funny our het Albino male is like that too. His baby name was Mr. Hissy Pants he was so mouthy. He's just that though, all mouth and not much else. He always grumbles when we bother him but he's just fine once he's actually out of his tub.

    I never got tagged from 05 to 08. Then we got 2 clutches of hatchlings and well I'm pretty much snake chow lately. Those little boogerheads are sure fast at the chew on Jo thing LOL.

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

    I just got bit about 5 times in a row by a female that I was stealing some eggs from. It doesn't hurt much but does give a good scare.

    I haven't been bit but I've seen people get bit.
    I'm not afraid of snakes, because I got Balls!

    It's almost like.. it scares your heart! It doesn't even hurt but for some reason we have a natural reaction that scares the crap out of us.

    Also, I've never been bitten by my female corn.. which is incredibly surprising considering she's so.. fidgety and fearful.
    My ball bit me the other day because I was checking his heat and he's in shed. I was basically stupid.
    HEY LETS GO STICK OUR HAND IN OUR SNAKES HIDE TO FEEL THE WARMTH.
    The reason was because I wasn't sure it was getting warm enough through the substrate and the power had just went out so I was making sure it was warm.
    Maybe I could've checked under the tub.. ahah.

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

    My male who is around 6 years old won't even strike at a rat, he is the calmest snake I have seen. My female pastel would hiss like no other and strike repeatedly when I first got her. After a month or two she was fine and hasn't struck or hissed since. It seems most of the ones that strike are hatchlings that are just not used to handling.
