    Our large (7'9") female was out for a while today, and when I noticed she was starting to get restless, I went to put her away. Apparently wasn't fast enough for her. Anyways. BAM, she got me once, and tried at least one more time before I got her into the cage.

    Anyways, I know Stefan would never forgive me if I didn't get some pics of it.

    Before cleaning up:

    Well, after cleaning the injury at least - you can still tell we had Ramen for lunch, lol.

    You should totally get yourself some tattoo ink (sterile as possible of course) to have on hand for the next time you get bitten...snakebite tat!

    Doesn't look as bad as I was expecting. My python has tagged me once good on the wrist and it was very much like that (just more bleeding from the difference in location). I don't know how snakes do it, but they manage to not inflict a lot of pain while causing a decent amount of blood loss.

    Great pictures, Stefan will be so happy that you got pictures. :) Glad it was just on the arm!

    Thanks Jen, now at last I might get a decent nights sleep (none of you will know just how stressful it's been having to wait ever so patiently for a decent bite shot), and I'm not one to complain, not me, but can I just ask why you didn't get the strike pic, too??? (Thanks all the same, but try a little harder next time, please)..... :-"

    Jen is going to have to install a camera throughout her home and yard to catch it as it happens, just for you.

    Not as bad as I would expect from almost an 8-foot boa. Probably hurt A LOT though and startled you a bit. I'd be pretty startled if I got tagged by a snake that big lol.

    It wasn't a bad bite, and because I could not see her head at the time, I wasn't startled, and didn't have an instinctive jerk.

    Stefan, next time she's restless, I'll go for the camera instead of the cage ;) If we don't comply with her majesty's wishes immediately, she takes it out on us peasant folk with her teeth... repeatedly... until we get the message. Sometimes, she tries a few extra times, just to keep us in line.

    Gee, and I thought my Tegu had an attitude! lol

    Oh, Queen Akasha definitely has an attitude. And a big one at that. It's a good thing we love her anyways - she usually aims for the face.

    I still haven't been tagged by a snake, the iguana was enough for me, thanks.

    I'll take being tagged by a big snake over a big iguana any day of the week!
