Got tagged last week by a good size RBB. Was removing it from a garden in someone's front yard ... I had it by the tail and it grabbed my other hand and had a good hold. I never thought a bite from a RBB would be too bad but may need to reconsider. The upshot is 4 days in hospital, an area of necrotising skin on my right hand, some severe muscle wastage, a few worrying moments re kidney function, some pretty intense swelling, and a bruised ego! First bite in 35 yrs of catching/handling snakes, i can only put it down to a few seconds of distraction. So all you catchers out there, be careful, it can happen very quickly!
