I actually havent been bit in over ten years, but like Frank all my bites but one came from me testing the snakes and testing my ability. I think I have won far more than I have lost as well

I think in the end I have won them all, simply because I have no lasting damage from any of the bites I have taken from a hot.

Now the worse bite I got was completely my fault. I was putting a big female pecos copperhead in a probing tube, and she filled up with air without me paying attention. I ended up putting her in a bit to big of a tube, she deflated herself, turned around, stuck her head out and nibbled my thumb. I actually saw it coming, and even told my partner I was about to take a bite. I just didnt want to hurt the animal by throwing the tube down to avoid the bite. It all happened so quick, and that was the choice I made. Sacrifice myself for the animals I love. Plus I was the one that was messing with her, so should I have injured her to avoid hurting myself?

more...
