The other day while feeding my two ball pythons, my male mistook my pinky finger for the mouse. This happened because, one.. he had a cap from his last shed covering one eye and two.. I was stupid and had my pinky sticking out. I am posting this for those of you that don't know what to do in this situation. Thanks to a show on Animal Planet I knew what to do. If it ever happens with any kind of snake, run some hot water and put the snake under it. Not too hotthough, you don't want to scald it. Or you can use alcohol anything that has it in it. Booze, or rubbing alcohol. Just don't panic. It is more of a shock than anything.It hurt but not as much as say a cat bite.
