I've had this little guy well over a year and this is my first tag from him. Actually, its my first tag ever.

I didn't even realise he had done anything until I seen the blood and realised then what had happened. It just felt like I'd been flicked. Not what I was expecting at all. Haha! But even so, he still managed to draw blood and leave a slight jaw imprint. I'm quite proud of him! :flrt: :lol2:
A thread is worthless without pictures, right? ;)



Cleaned up...



The culprit, back in his feeding tub, ready to bite me again given half a chance! lol

While this is the first time I've actually been had, it's not the first time he's struck at me. He's dog tame the majority of the time but when he's in feed mode... :devil:

Little :censor: struck at my face a few weeks back! He managed to push the lid up on the RUB enough to squeeze out and strike at me. That shook me up more because I felt the air move infront of my face from the movement, that's how close he got.:lol2:

Completely my fault though, I guess I've become too complacent. Lesson learnt. :whip:

the frist of many,just wait untill a 13 foot burmeses bites you in the face!!!
I've actually seen that happen, and it wasn't pretty. One of the teeth went straight in my friends eye. Didn't know for over a week if he wold lose the eye or not, but he didn't.

Human error. Never change a snakes water bowl right after you have been feeding monkeys :whistling2:

It's definitely no fun when something big wants to give you a love bite.

I haven't been bitten in the face yet, had a few close encounters though : victory:

He had to have surgery to remove a piece of tooth from the eye. The surgeon said if it wasn't for him wearing glasses at the time, the eye would be gone. He laughs about it now, because he knows it was his fault. It was years ago, but he still has the snake and it's near on 30 now.
