Of the two snakes i expected the snow to be the one to strike at me! but it was the Amel. Lol. i usually can get her out.. But today..

she was lazing inbetween the tank and the cave, so i moved the cave to see if she was in the mood to be picked up (she didn't move) so i then put my fingers to her side (she didn't move) and finally.. I went to pick her up, got her to by the top of the tank and she striked at me! cheaky lil nipper Lol.

My lad has been nipped by one of his hatchlings but he actually likes it as he is a bit weird :shock: (9 year olds), then again he does want anything which requires a DWA licence.

Just make sure you carry on holding even if they nip as soon as yopu put them back they will keep doing it. :wink:

My rescue Boa tagged me just above my eye last week. Two rats and a nice warm tub - ungrateful little sod.

Oh no... for the love of god.. please say it wasnt your typing finger!!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry... but SOMEONE had to say it! :oops:
Everyones being mean to me! lol.
I can type with either hand ;) i use all 4 fingers and thumb on each hand, so even if the sod bit one of my fingers i'd still be fine :p


I'm going to get one of those really useful boxes, put them in there when ever i want to handle them.

When they are smaller they will strike out... as said when they do keep handling them else it'll happen all the time. When they are that small though its nothing
