Make sure you know exactly what your getting into when you decide to get a burm. These are poor quality pictures (but you still get a good idea of what its like) that I just took after my 8 foot albino burm thought I was lunch. Now know, that this is a snake that has slept beside me many times, one that I take to volenteer with that I trust who will be able to tolerate many little children petting him at a time. This was a feeding accident, completly my fault. He was coiled up on my floor, I went over and grabbed him by his tail to pick him up. It is close to his feeding time, so he is hungry. When I touched him he went into that feeding mode, and grabbed onto my wrist. He tried constricting but I was able to grab his body and keep him from wrapping around my wrist. He held onto me for a few seconds and then let go. I quickly left him where he was, got a couple of pics, then washed it out with soap very well. I managed to stop the bleeding, but theres a very good chance he punctured a few veins. If it gets any worse I'm going to have to go to the hospital to get it looked at. The last picture is hard to tell, but you can see the swelling already. The burm you have may be very tame, but remember it is still a wild animal, and when it comes to food and survival, nothing else matters to it. You must never get relaxed when working with them, even just a tiny bit like I did, and if something like this ever happens, you must know what to do beforehand. Your going to want to invest in a very good snake hook for it. If I was using a snakehook to pick him up, this would of never happened. Learn from my mistake, and take heed my words of wisdom, its a lesson you dont want to learn yourself. All I will need is to have it wrapped up for a few days. Theres about 30 seperate puncture marks and a lot of bruising. It probably wont scar, but I'll always be able to feel it like I can with my other old bites.
