    It's very common for "baby" snakes to bite- it's just their instinctive self-defense, & they're so tiny- I can't blame them. But by the time they grow up knowing us, it's uncommon for most snakes to bite (not just BPs, but rat snakes & boas & many others) assuming they're well-treated & not teased by clueless owners. And not counting accidental "feeding bites" which are preventable by us- oops! Not really the snakes fault.

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




    Just found this on my old mobile.

    I donít recall this bite specifically but it looks like one of my Royal Python bites ..

    They have always been at feeding time and always when I wasnít concentrating or just got too complacent.


    If this is the one Iím thinking of .. the wife pulled out some teeth using tweezers and was just a littke tender for a day or so BUT a week later it was really sore and itchy and I noticed that some teeth had worked their way to the surface of my skin and had to be pulled out with tweezers then I applied a little Sudocrem antiseptic healing cream

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

    Ive been bit by one adult and two babies. My adult was an absolute sweetheart and she missed the rat and tagged my hand. Then my dad made the mistake of tank feeding our newest ball for a while and I paid the price. The other was a freak occurrence by my big pied when he was small and he has never showed aggression since.

    Some snakes look as though they'd like to wash our taste out of their mouths after an accidental bite, don't they? Like "Ew, what was that!? No thanks!"
