    Garter snakes can be very effective, if not exactly "ferocious" for their size.

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

    so far i’ve only been bitten once by dwarf male burm, 2 fake bites from my male scrub and last weekend my female coastal both bit me and peed on me when i caught her trying to escape after misting - never anything else - i’ve got some snaps here and there but that’s the only time - my BP is as tame as they get tbh

    other than that those are the only 4 times i’ve ever been tagged by any of my pets - never got tagged by a captive arachnid, just a wild adult female black widow (which required hospitalization, antivenin, morphine, saline, the whole 9, etc)

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

    I just officially got my first bite. It was totally my fault. Just doing my daily inspection for waste and even though she was coiled I adjusted her humid hide a bit and she’s spilled out. Took the opportunity to pick her up and inspect the moss to see if it needed a cleaning and she gently bit my pinky. If I didn’t see it and there wasn’t a bit of blood drawn I would’ve had no idea I was a bit.
    Last night when handling her noticed her belly was turning pink and loosing a bit. Today she was a little more quirky/investigative as I approached her enclosure.
    Guess we’re back into adolescent shed mode

    I have personally never been bit by a snake before. I have been bit by a softshell and a lizard tho.

    Typical snake bites are underwhelming- paper cuts are much worse.

    Almost any animal bite is preferable to a turtle bite, especially one from an angry slider...

    That's what I meant by "typical"- typical as in what most people keep- BPs, corns- rat snakes, kings, bull snakes, etc. I sure didn't mean rattlesnakes either, lol.
