This came up at the last meeting but I don't remember what everyone said. Should someone keep some kind of device around when they have a large animal. Example. Should they keep a spray bottle of alcohol near their Burm's tank? Basically what saftey precautions should be taken if something where to happen.

Now from what I hear, pouring harsh Alcohol works sometimes. I think that would be a good idea. Maybe some kind of cheap Vodka. I know that there are some out there that are just awful. They would stop anything from biting. I think that some kind of stool or chair should also be kept near by. If the snake becomes aggressive, you can position it between you and the snake. Now, I started thinking about a knive. I don't know how I feel about that. I guess as a last resort, but I don't think it needs to be kept close.
