So my little rubber boa tried to eat me today. LOL. My guess is I didn't wash my hands well enough after handling some lunch chicken. I reached in to pick him up and he tightly coiled around my index finger (he's a little guy, only a little over a foot long). He then turned around and bit my finger, quickly realizing it wasn't edible. Afterwards, his coils relaxed and he continued on his merry way of weaving in and out between my fingers. Even though he gave a good, solid bite it didn't even pierce the skin. =) Maybe I need to move him up to two pinky mice a week! At least he has a good appetite, even in this cold weather. =) Anyone else get bit by a rubber boa?
