Tell strawberry shortcake(your friend) everything is OK. The mean old snake wont hurt him anymore. LOL That is a funny story. No but really, I got bit by my 10 foot burm, 4 foot pimbura, 7 foot retic, and 7 foot indigo before. They are all very aggressive. The indigo was the only one that really hurt. I still handle them a lot - only now with welding gloves. I am more afraid of pulling out their teeth than the damage they can do to my skin. From a medical standpoint, I have gotten many worse bites from cats than snakes.
