I have never been bitten by mine, but from what I have read their bite shouldnt be more painfull than from any other small snake. Their toxine is very mild and the swelling should be equal to a mosquito bite. They are totally harmless to humans so there is nothing to worry about.

Has anyone got any experience with E. chinensis? Im looking for info on this species but havent found much. Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards

:Hi

:No never witnessed that, and would actually be quite suprised if it was able to bit over a normal finger... they are quite small (the adults on the pictures are between 35 and 40 cm). The adults are feed small fish
