Hey. Thanks for the advice. So far I've not yet had any kind of allergic reactions to stings or otherwise (and even lucky enough to not react to poison ivy....really helps when chasing those slippery black racers down into the scrub alongside roads, believe me), but I'm not going to take any more chances with the mangrove. Yeah, I have freehandled her some with gloves, and then without when I realized I couldn't even wave my hand in front of her face (gloved or otherwise) and provoke a defensive responce. Strange huh? I know she's healthy, because she's been dewormed and deflaggylated (sp?), and has eaten for me, so I guess I just lucked out and got the atypical mangrove snake. I've not had a snake yet that hasn't tried to tag me for moving too quickly, but this mangrove totally lacks any fear of humans. She isn't very big yet, about 4' or so (can't wait til she hits that 8' mark or bigger, heh). I just hope she retains her very placid attitude (except toward prey) for the rest of her life.
