:I don't really let them bite me on purpose (as Doug joked)...but...I have had a number of "good" bites. Most of them were defensive bites from cribos (actually, knowing some of my yt's, they were probably OFFENSIVE bites). and once from a wild eastern that I was legally capturing. I've had large yellowtails bite, chew and try to twist flesh off my arm. (thanks Dannio). It was not a pleasureable experience, but it wasn't any worse than any other large non-ven snake.
I think the WORST indigo bite I had was a feeding response from an eastern. it was not a hold and chew...just a quick bite and release when he realized I was not food. After THAT one, my finger looked like it had been cut deeply by a razor blade.
