thanks for sharing troy! looks like that was a nasty reaction. glad everything turned out well in the end.

Thanks for reading Jonathan!

Yeah, it was definitely an interesting experience but there were no (known) long term effects. In fact, my left hand, the one that got bit, the one that always gets bit, does a lot better than my right hand, in terms of mobility, which tends to get a bit arthritic at times. Not saying that getting bit is going to solve arthritis, but getting bit sure hasn't made my left hand any worse than my right hand already is.

i have a couple that would try to eat a finger in a moment if they thought it was feeding time. holding one and just getting bit would have totally thrown me for a loop though.

I have several that have grown so used to me, that on feeding day, or any other day for that matter, they have no problem coming up to me if not coming after me! But on feeding day, everybody gets fed using tongs, no exceptions! I've been bitten far too many times by simply holding a mouse in my hands or by the tail. And yet ironically, tongs aren't always the safety net I was hoping for either, I still get some of these knuckleheads that strike past the tongs and more towards my fingers. Perhaps I'm tastier than those stinky ol' mice.
