    Hi Forum, I'm new here but not new to reptile keeping. Although I'm hardly very experienced either. Anyway, the issue... a few weeks ago I acquired an adult Royal Python from a reptile rescue centre. She's healthy, settled in and feeding well. However, since getting her she has bitten me a...

    So quick story first, I don't own a snake but iv been looking into getting one, specifically a Ball Python. So I find a good reptile shop near me which breeds them and I go to visit it. I find the rack where there being stored and ask to look at them, now this is the first time iv ever even seen...

    Hi guys, I was having no trouble feeding my 2 year old ck snake until a few weeks ago. She's a usually very good eater and always rushes out as soon as she see's the mouse. I always offer it to her using tweezers and she usually strikes quickly and succesfully. However a few weeks ago I offered...

    Hey guys I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I got my leopard Gecko about a year ago from his previous owner, after feeling sorry for him on a facebook selling page. I've had Leos before but I had my original from around '97 to '11 so my feeding methods were a bit old school...

    Hey everyone, I've had a black and white tegu for about 3 weeks now, she's about 5 months old now, around 4 when we got her. The taming seemed to be going well, but now I'm not so sure. Last week, she tried to bite me three times while doing the ignore taming while sitting on the floor. I sat...

    So here's a new one for me. My greybanded king, 7/8ths L alterna, 1/8th L ruthveni, seems to have bitten by a spider yesterday. Has anyone had anything like this happen to them? I brought her out for feeding and she was limper than usual but squirmier at the front end. She had a small lump...

    Do some Boas stay wild their entire lives? Hercules is turning 4 next month but he still doesn't like being picked up and bites/tries to bite me every time I try. So I'm basically treating him like a fish in a tank and just looking at him rather than handling him. In recent days I have started...

    I have a Colombian Red Tail Boa and she's about 8 months old, this is my first snake and she's beginning to go off feed, which I'm told is normal for boas around this time of year (info in this department is appreciated but not the main subject at hand). Consequently, she's been wanting to feed...

    I was recently bitten by one of my corns (bigger than 500g) it dident hurt that much but im now quite shaken up and have a slight fear about trying to handle them, any advise? I was probably bitten because they were late on being fed, they are usually fed on a sunday but i ran out of mice and...

    How is a bite from an adult Redtail Rat Snake ? Similar to a radiated rat / nip or a grab and hold. They seem to have quite a thick jaw. Can anyone share any bite stories .
  13. Snakes
    I have two corn snakes which my family have been caring for while I've been at university. During this time they were handled very little so naturally opening the viv became associated with feeding and they became increasingly aggressive. Since I've been home (around 6 monthes) I've been making...

    I love the big guys, bit they do have quite a bite and you can never 100% predict what will happen if I take him for a walk, a child might trip, he might get scared he might go temporarily insane. Would a muzzle work, like taping a croc's jaws, or would it be too uncomfortable and unrealistic...

    I know they can bite our beloved lizards but I'm curious to know if they can bite us? Or do we not feel it? Thanks!

    Hi! I've had a red tail boa (Her name is Riley) for over a year now, and up until now she's been wonderful. Very friendly and energetic, happy and healthy. Up until recently. I made an account here to ask this question because I really don't know what to do. About a week and a half ago, she bit...

    One of mine finally got me. First time I have ever been bitten. Reptile Forums - ReptiRichard's Album: How daft was that - Picture My fault too. And doubly daft. King snake didnt want to eat late last night so I left it in his cage. Got up early for work, half awake, shaved, and was just...

    So i was round my friends house today, and he gave his 4 month old royal some oral injections (I'm not quite sure what for). Anyway, the snake seemed to be really stressed during the ordeal and squirmed a lot during the process as if she hated it. Now i was just wondering would she know, that...

    I have a year and a half old California King Snake who in the last month or so seems to have decided that my boyfriend is food. He behaves perfectly fine when I am handling him but as soon as he is passed over to my bf he acts as he does when he is being fed and bites him :gasp: I can't see why...

    I find it fascinating to watch the different responses each of my snakes give when offered food. LT dan (carpet) and yukiko(corn) are pretty consistant. what i find weird is that fernando seems to vary each time i feed him its always a surprise. sometimes he gently takes it from the tongs or...
