I'm talking about the actual BITE of a 16ft burm. Have you ever seen a LARGE constrictor bite? Theres a "bite pic" floating around somewhere of Dave Barker (i think) after being bitten by a 15ft? reticulated python. The damage inflicted is amazing. If someone has a link to it hopefully they will post it.

Believe me, I understand that gaboons have the longest fangs. However theres only *2* the rest are laughable, and the 15lb venomoid gaboon will most likely bite and let go, leaving you with 2 deep punctures and a few tiny pinpricks. The burm on the other hand, has hundreds of 1/2" long teeth, which it will hold onto you with, while coiling its 150lbs onto you. Even if it DIDNT wrap you, the effect it has on soft human skin is horrendous. Aside from deep punctures, it will actually cause severe lacerations, including severed tendons and/or veins depending on where you are bit.

I just had to laugh, at the fact that you have a burm, yet the only thing you're worried about with obtaining this gaboon is possible nerve damage from a gab bite. If you use all the correct safety precautions theres no way the thing should even come CLOSE to your hand. Good luck with your burm though.
