They've got long sharp teeth alright and their rear fangs are further forward anatomically than most other species in this category, evidently.

A bite will definately hurt but if anyones got a Retic, Burm, Boa or other good sized python a bite is still painful. CHOOSE a "well tamed" FWC from a store or reputable breeder and follow your instincts when handling it.

I always use a hook (they generally dont like a gloved hand zooming into its viv), and pay attention if it hoods up...let it pass and calm down. You ever been picked up by a giant?

Never allow a biting opportunity to the face, now matter how tame. Although I actually think ours somehow "recognises" us, :lol2:

All this said ours is absolutely one of the most delightful creatures on Gods earth.
