Bug bites.....

Hi, Folks... I haven't been around for a while, but just stopped in to say hello. Most of you probably won't have a clue as to who I am, but a few oldtimers may recognize a name from the past...

I noticed the discussion of iguana bites, and thought I'd post a pic of my experience from a couple of years ago... My male Bug was about 5 lbs at the time, and I should have had stiches and didn't.... It went to the bone, and bled profusely. If anyone thinks that those small teeth aren't dangerous, think of a serrated steak knife. the teeth are pretty small there, too, but easily slice flesh...

Bug is about 12 lbs now, and a real big boy. A bite from him now would put me in the hospital for some extensive plastic surgery. He's been pretty calm lately, but has had some real "Harry" type episodes in the last year.

Hello to all you old-timers... John Tebbs
