I have but only 1 albino out of a shedload(for under 18 purposes) of different types of burms I've met.i have never met a mean burmese.
Some are a little hissy and nippy but never a EVIL one.
Mine is great ill leave him for 2/3 weeks when busy (mum changes water but doesnt handle) and hes still a dream to cuddle
Yeah like I say I've only seen the one. It was v.mean and liked to bite my friend.....a LOT. Not seen any others like it.that goes without saying mate...
My point was that i have never came across a totally malicious burmese where i have met malicous boas, retics, royals, corns, rats etc.
the only burm that has ever tagged me was that assit fed female i have and the first time she did . she hit my hand so hard and locked her teeth down it seemed to take forever to get her off ..I have but only 1 albino out of a shedload(for under 18 purposes) of different types of burms I've met.
For the OP they are usually faily placid provided they're well handled and you don't put yourself in a situation where you, the snake and food (or smell of food) are all together. A hungry burm is not to be underestimated!!
I'm glad you're putting the effort in. Too many people take a bite and then think their snake has "gone aggressive" so get rid.the only burm that has ever tagged me was that assit fed female i have and the first time she did . she hit my hand so hard and locked her teeth down it seemed to take forever to get her off ..
i am still marked up from that bite and it occassionly flares up and you can see the teeth marks and its been healed along time now.
i also put that down to the burm mistaking my hand for food it was either feed her or let her suffer.... my choice was to to feed her, since shes a youngster i guess only time will tell if she does seperate hands from rats in her minds eye !..
it has taken a lot of time and effort to get her where she is now ...i'm happy with the results so far but still wary of her
Technically yes provided it grew to a size big enough. TBH though provided you do your homework and are sensible the risks are manageable. There have been no deaths to constrictors reported in the UK. About 20 in the US over the last TEN YEARS.tyvm all for your help and stories, but i have 1 more question do you think a common boa would be able to kill a fully grown man?
