Mine was from a Brazilian rainbow boa about 10 months old and it nicked me 3 times, it didn't actually hurt it was the speed and shock of it that made me jump, although I dis have a dull ache up my arm, but that stuff can just be psychological!

Overall unless its something quite massive it isn't going to do you a great deal of damage or pain lol!

Hatchling Corns dont hurt.

10ft Burm does hurt.

Everyone has a different pain threshold, so a bite may hurt one and not another.

My first was a Cali King, the first time didn't hurt.
She has had me in tears once, this was when she latched onto my little finger and hooked herself around a piece of slate and tried to pull my hand under her hide like she would a rat. She also chewed.
As already said, the bruising hurts the most, even the chewing isn't so bad until the day after.
I've also had two defensive bites from a 2 month old Boa, that feels like a static shock.
Dogs, Ferrets, Cats, Hamster and Guinea Pigs are much much much much much much worse, and more likely to get infected.
