In Reply to: defensive vs. feeding response... posted by DeanAlessandrini on March 07, 2003 at 07:40:31:

::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.

I compare the bite of an Eastern Indigo to haveing your finger sanwiched between two razor blades. I dont know about Deans fetish about getting bitten, but I truly HATE it. So much for all the macho posturing eh? Dean, yoour made of stronger stuff than I.:)


sincerely,

Fred Albury
