You bagging out someone because they put a photo up on a internet site just proves you need a different hobbie to keep you occupied. I enjoyed looking at the photo and I'm glad you uploaded it

Mental note... Do not look into a bag with a cold snake. If you do make sure you have a good sense of humour about it at leastTwo wrongs don't make it right, but 2 rights will make a U-turn.
You're a cranky old soul Jamie have a giggle and get over it.Dancing alone for we move to the beat of a different drum.
OK, OK... you all win... I'm a cranky old sod with no sense of humour ! I LOVE the photo now - although I didn't search for it on other threads, had never seen it before... someone told me how it happened...
Now gird, it was early yesterday afternoon when I went off the rails - far too early for me to be affected by red wine. I only drink before 5 at funerals. Well, not at the actual funeral, but the wake afterwards... so it was probably a result of my rapidly ageing brain...
I'll try and be nice today ...
I'm having a glass of red on your behalf tonight Jamie
And Ing's, just for good measure...Dancing alone for we move to the beat of a different drum.
I am glad you love my photo now Jamie :p you should see what one of my monitors did to my hand today!!!! Jokes
Thanks for the happy posts people
Shoo I am going to have a glass of red for you tonight also, and one for Jamie :p Sounds like fun!
On the topic of rough scaled pythons, I have two gorgeous little hatchlings here and they are very skittish. I don't handle them apart from cleaning time so I haven't given them much of a chance to get used to handling. They just go in a straight line and dart everywhere :p

I was only bitten when one of mine missed the rat I was holding. Other then that I would almost go as far to say that they don't bite....but I did have one moment when the only reason my photos not up there next to Ingies is because my male ran out of length by 1 inch. I must admit though, the length of the adult teeth does make getting bitten in a food response an exciting time!!SNAKES:- They make sleeping on logs look comfortable.
When the power of love outweighs the love of power, then the world will see real peace.
For you folks who have had the pleasure of being christened by an RSP, how do you think the bite compares to one from another snake of a similar size? Do those long teeth make it worse?Proud custodian of Zephyr, a female wheatbelt Stimmie (hatched 13/12/10)

Renenet needs to stop looking at pictures of pretty snakes.
My bite was over before I realised it had happened. It didn't hurt at all, just felt like a little tap. However, there was a lot of blood compared to other bites I have had, not sure if that was just because it was on my face. After the photo was taken the blood kept coming and it was dripping off my nose and chin for several minutes. I had nothing to wipe it off with apart from my hand LOL.
I don't think an RSP bite would be anything to be more worried than usual about, unless yours decided to hang on!
The bleeding is interesting. I was once bitten on the back of the neck (time for true confessions ) by a 4m scrubby (yes... I wasn't paying attention when changing water tubs...) and it bled for about 20 minutes. The puncture wounds, as opposed to tears in the flesh, left by even large pythons are relatively small, so you would expect quick coagulation, but these things can bleed far in excess of what you would expect. Often accompanied by significant subcutaneous bleeding (bruising) around the site as well.
Does anyone know whether there is an anti-coagulant compnent in a python's saliva?
I had a glass or two of a nice red last night as well...
But moving on I have wondered about the anti-coagulant properties as well. I had several wild coastal bites (from the same snake) that bled a ridiculous amount. And as you said above once the bleeding stops you could barely see the wound the puncture marks were so small.
