Again, this is gone crazy and makes me wonder about how folks use "information" and context. And if you believe everything on the internet, your in trouble.

Saliva of humans, causes a nasty bite and often, cats, dogs etc, cause the same. Friggin catfish can bite or poke the crap out of you.

I will quote my wife, if it has a mouth, it can bite. Oh yea, last week a 2ft female hog in the field, used it false striking and buffing ability and it worked on her. It got away without a picture, but an old can to make the spot and going to get me(out in the bush) we did get our pictures and information.

I guess theres lots of people in the world and I am the total opposite of Troy. I have had 11 rattlesnake bites, 3 were hot. The last two, I did nothing. The last one, I went back to work. None hurt in any way, the first really had swelling, my arm was a balloon, the last two were about like Troys. I have been bitten by a million rear fanged and other colubrids, including hogs and huge lyresnakes, without any symptons what so ever. A a million varanid bites with are known to carry croto toxin. And some like Kings pygmy monitors, will make you dance. Apparently, I like to dance.

I also ride a Harley, now that is dangerous. Oh and cars, hmmmmmmmmm they will kill you.

The advice is easy, keep your hands or other body parts out of their mouths(If it bothers you).

As most would say here, If they ban them, I would still keep them. And that is what happens when there are friggin too many laws, the laws themselves become weak and useless.

You all know Australia has tons of laws in this area, funny thing is, in the outback(99%) of Oz. No one gives a damn.

Its funny with English rule, everything fun is illegal, yet the English run around the world having fun.

I am sorry Troys hand reacted like it did, but seriously, its up to him to carry on or not. As it is with the rest of us.
