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

    LOL @ this topic , the stories i could tell ..

    I have been bit more then i can count (mostly by babies ). most of my adult bites from BP's was due to feeding response .

    from babies to adults ive been tagged numerous times .

    not to mention the 10-20ft burms i owned , 9 ft boas , 5-12ft retics etc..etc...

    i look at it like this if a snake i own doesnt bite me at least 1 time theres something wrong with it .

    but thats me LOL

    I have been bitten 2 times, both were at feeding time. Both were my falt. I broke the rule of feeding with my hands and not feeding tongs.

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

    Well i dont know about any rules like that .
    i have never fed with tongs and never will ..
    i like the hands on way .


    only way i would use tongs is when i start up my venomous collection when my kids are grown .

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

    I have only had my normal male for 2 months and I have never been bitten, yet. He did try to strike at my boyfriend though because he made a sudden movement that scared him.

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

    -Laughs.- The first time I was tagged(every time actually) it was definitely my fault. My male at the time found himself content to curl up in the built-in CD tower of my desk. I pulled out the first two tiers, but didn't think to get the last one. He flipped out and struck at me. Never again. I felt so awful about it too. I cried because I'd frightened him.

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

    I think that this "poll" is inaccurate in the sense that it does not determine how many or how long you've been working with ball pythons; do you have one ball python, and has it bitten you every time you touch it, or do you have three ball pythons and only been bit twice in the year you've owned them.

    I fall into the "In any given year over the last ten, I've had between 100-250 ball pythons in my care, and my ratio of being bit to not being bit is 0.00001% of the time I handle them.
