It is a dumb idea, no matter what. You did a great job reporting yours.

How about just having all the other hog keepers report their experience with hognose bites.

I simply have not been bit hard by one, one did attempt to swallow my finger, but nothing happened.

In the field, they simply will not bite, they fake strike, open their mouths, blood pours out at times and they rub it on you, but never bite. None of us even pay attention to if they are going to bite or not.

In most cases, we just want them to pose and stop with the nonsense.

May I ask, was their localize tissue destruction? or any localized discoloration? Any systematic damage at all? Other then swelling. And please, these are decent questions to help understand the bite.

Ok, out to observe lyres and tigers and blacktails and pyros and more. Tomorrow folks
