LOL!,.....wow! The little bad-ass really put the swellin' on ya, Troy!

That he did, that he did. He definitely let me know who's boss.

I'd say you had quite the significant reaction to the bite as some others also do. Great progression post, and I hope you can keep from sustaining more tags in the future. You definitely know what to expect from the critters, that's for sure.

Oh most definitely! It's made me a lot more aware AND careful when I handle mine. To say that I was surprised and shocked at this last reaction would be an understatement. Even though I had seen the really bad reaction as shown on Herpnet (Link), I figured that would only happen if I let an adult hognose chew on me for an extended period of time like that guy did. Little did I realize that even a small one can cause a significant reaction.

Despite the pain and inconvenience of the experience, it was actually one I was excited, if that's the right word, to have gone through just for the sake of learning something of the effects. But then again, I'm that kind of stupid!

take care Troy!

Like I always say in response, I'll take it any way I can get it!

ps, you going to Daytona? Jimmy and I will definitely be there at our two tables.

I wish I were, it's a 5 hour one-way flight and that only drops me off into Orlando, then I'd have to drive up to Daytona; it's definitely not a fun trip for me to make but that's the price I pay for flying free I suppose. I haven't been to Daytona in a handful of years and it'd be great to not only catch up with some old friends, but to finally meet all my new friends such as yourself. Maybe next year...
