    I haven't been bit by any of my snakes but... to be honest... I'd rather get the initial bite out of the way so that I don't have that ""Oh my goodness my snakey-poo might bite me tonight." I'd rather get that first one over with to shake that fear.

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

    I was gonna answer no to this a few days ago and wont u know it i was picking out my BP at the store and i was handling one that i really wanted and as hes curled in my hand he just blindy struck at the air right next to my arm. I saw it and looked at my husband, then looked at another customer, with this amazed look on my face like "did he just strike" i didnt even get tagged and i think the scare is just as bad as the wound. The fact that i shreaked HOLY S@$% made the store owner come back just laughing. He knew what had happened. So yeah i got the other bp in the cage next to him. My bci has struck at me through the glass a few times.

    Mostly I get tagged by hatchlings when cleaning or changing water.

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

    I was bit by my adult male Floyde. When I was moving from my house I had to put him in something other than his tank so as to eliminate risk of something smushing him or pinching him. So I tried to put him in a much too little critter thing with the vented lid. He started coming back out, normal dimeanor, I put my hand in front of him, and bam! He bit me right on some scar tissue on my thumb. I had to kind of push and pull to get him off.
    The point is I knew better, and I learned my lesson. If the snake makes a decision, don't try to change his mind.
    Before you knock it try it first, you may find it's a blessing and not a curse.

    So how would you move with BP so it won't bite you or strike at you?

    Not by any of my bp's (not from the lack of trying from a couple). I have been bitten by my Children's Python and an 8 foot Burm.

    I've been bitten twice now, but both have been my own fault!
