    Thread topic says it all. had plenty of bites before but this one was specifically painful. didnt flinch or pull back. she held on for a good 2minutes while looking for camera. got several teeth stuck in me not sure how to remove :) DSC_0207.jpg DSC_0206.jpg DSC_0208.jpg

    Right here
    Make a paste of betadine and raw sugar and coat the bite area. Cover it with a non absorbing gauze. The sugar will draw out the teeth and the betadine will inhibit infection. It worked a treat after i fell into an oyster lease.

    Nice work by the bred by the way :)

    Ah, someone I can relate to! :p

    I had a very similar experience with my four year old female Bredli, only a few weeks ago - this, however, is the result of simply not thinking! (note to all, I've posted this here so you all know that those of us who have been keeping these animals for longer than "five minutes", also get a little forgetful or complacent - this was totally my fault...)

    On feed night, my female Bredli always comes out of her enclosure to feed, I stepped off my step-ladder when I got her out, took a couple of steps back, picked up the tub that had her rat in it, started to walk toward her feeding tub... She was heading down toward her tub (she's quite well practiced at this!), and noticed in my other hand was her din... The funny thing was, a split-second before this occured, I thought "I'm an idiot, this won't end well"... Well, the pic tells you what happened...!

    hey mate ive had a similar experience when i first got my 3 yr old bredli..in the end i put it down to being in experienced and the fact that i was a new smell to her so she didn't know if i was a predator or not. i used a snake hook to let her know i was their and to get her out from then on, 4 months later after handling her everyday she got better and better and after about 1 months i didnt need the snake hook i can just pick her straight up, i believe you should keep persisting with him/her once she realises your not a danger to her she wont bite you any more. nice pics too!
