Are you saying that being bitten in the EYE is a possibility with a GABOON!?!? What on EARTH are you talking about? I seriously doubt in the WHOLE history of the entire WORLD that ANYONE has EVER been bitten in the EYE by a gaboon. And honestly, I dont really understand how you can even think for a minute that a 15lb gaboon has more force behind its strike than a 150lb constrictor. Aside from that, the speed and force of the strike is not the issue. Its the DAMAGE I'm refering to. It's obvious to me, that neither you nor the original poster has had ANY experience dealing with a large, healthy, angry constrictor. Nor have you seen the aftermath of an attack on a human.

In addition, I never said being bitten by a venomoid gaboon would be a walk in the park. If I had to choose between the 2, it would be a tough decision. I wanted to make this kid aware that his pet burm is just as capable, if not more so of inflicting a bite to him causing serious nerve, tendon, and/or blood vessel damage. I believe I've said, and RE-said everything I possibly can on the subject. Take care.
