"Are you saying that being bitten in the EYE is a possibility with a GABOON!?!? What on EARTH are you talking about? "


What I am talking about is this. With a venomoid handling certainly would be a possibility, wouldn't it? All it would take for this to happen is someone handing such a snake and having it within range of your eyes. Snake strikes for some reason, hits your eye, there you go. Point is that your eyelids are thick enough to stop pretty much any python bite, their teeth are not long enough in most cases. A gaboon viper has sufficient fang length and strike power to pierce your eye lids.

Since the topic was about handling a venomoid, I wanna ask you how YOU could never consider this a possibility?

As far as strike force between a large python and a large Gaboon...all I am going to ask you is if you have ever seen a large gaboon hit large prey. Its up in the air as to which has a stonger hit, but discounting a gaboon's strength based on size and weight is silly.
