    I have never been bitten, but I have only been around snakes for about 5 months now. My GF has a 9 year old normal male, and I think I would have to bathe in rodents for him to even consider biting me. My young BP took a strike at me when I first got him, but it was my fault. He was in the back corner of the tank in a nervous/defensive position, and I was moving stuff around in his cage. I got to close and he snapped. He does the same thing now every once in a wile, but I always pay attention to him now and I never make quick movements around him when he is in his cage. I only move stuff around when he is hiding.

    I never put my hand or arm in FRONT of their heads

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

    I have only had my Royal for a couple of months and I got bit. I can't blame the snake though. I had her in glass but couldn't keep the humidity at the right level to I switched her over to a plastic tub on a Monday. I feed her in plastic tubs on Tuesdays. I'm sure that she associates the look and smell of plastic with food, but i didn't realize this at the time. So I went in to temp gun under the cool hide Monday evening and she struck my finger and drew blood. She is pretty small and it didn't hurt at all. The marks were healed by the end of the day. I just remember her confused mannerism when she immediately let go of my finger "You arn't a mouse...". After that I went in a couple of hours later (I know I know, let them settle. But I was making sure I wasn't nervous and was "back on the horse" so to speak). She went right to my hand, slithered up, wrapped around my wrist and rubbed her head against my thumb. I ended up taping the outside walls of the tub so that it looked different from the feeding tub.

    I've been struck at defensively by my baby lesser pastel and I've been tagged twice by my four and a half foot lemonblast female. Both times were my own fault, she is extremely food motivated and I smelt of rats the first time and the second time I thought I would be safe reaching into her enclosure to check something without letting her know I wasn't food because she'd just eaten the day before, needless to say she thought my hand was a rat and got me good ��. Even an adult of that size really can't hurt you much though, she is a puppy dog as long as she knows you aren't lunch.

    Never been bit, but bumped frequently, now I am methodical about cleaning my hands when in feed mode as it reduces the chances. All my snakes are use too a finger rub to let them now I am about to move them.
