    Hey [MENTION=27815]Stuart[/MENTION], only 1 serious bite and that was 1 of the Tiger Snake bites, few nights in hospital and an extremely swollen arm but other than that no other issues. Other Tiger snake bite was very minor and just a sore swollen finger, and no effects from the Brown Snake bite. The Diamond bite was probably the most painful. I was getting teeth out of my hand for weeks.

    It actually wasnt too bad. It stung a bit like a bee sting for about 15 mins and then dissapeared. I have heard of others suffering a fair bit more.

    Crikeys Scotty (eipper) that's a fair resume mate.

    As for you others too funny. :lol:

    Cracks me up how you all just list the bites like they r no big deal.

    Great thread peeps.

    For mine that moray eel bite would have been a cracker. They r *******s of things if they get hold.

    I sure as hell don't want to be bitten by a moray - their teeth are terrifying!

    Jesus Scott you must have more venom in your body than blood :shock:

    Any texty bites? Being bitten by all those and not a texty would be pretty lucky!

    My wife still has a tooth from our second bredli in her hand. It was one of those strike out at you bites, and I think as it pulled away it left a tooth behind.

    Go get bitten by a texty alexbee, then a retic or anaconda then see if it'll change your mind. I'd rather a big snake over a dangerous ven any day!

    Not to mention that Scott has had monitor bites (correct me if I'm wrong but I know you have lacies) and large snake bites (seeing as he owns olives) so I assume you may be wrong
