Worst one was the blue tongue by far.
Would rather the big ones bite than a ven any day of the week.

Alex when they are considering amputating a finger and worried about your skin exploding due to the swelling as your cell walls are dissolving, your kidneys are struggling with the amount of muscle broken down into the blood, permanent nerve damage....... Etc etc bugger the head size.

Hell Scotty, pretty poor record really...hahaha. I've been collecting vens since I was about 10 years old and have handled thousands over the years both in the wild and as a keeper and apart from a few love taps from a couple of different pythons and a nick here and there from the odd whip or swampie the only serious bites have been from RBB, Tiger and Brown (all my own fault I might add -RBB while assist shedding, Tiger through a bag and Brown while cleaning), I've had a few close calls but I've never been tagged in the field.

Cheers,

George.

Most were neonates/ juveniles that I never used to worry about George. After the swamp in 05 I started being careful and I have had one nip since then.... Touch wood

I'm still in awe of people who handle/keep vens, even more so of the ones who catch/relocate them :shock:



Think I'll stick to my carpet pythons hehehe

Hehe. Love it. Thanks. [emoji4]

As for me, my cats (queue haters) when they are playing or if I'm annoying them... My mums old parrot hated me and would bite me at any given chance, a wild wombat at Wilsons Prom years and years ago and my hatchy RSP on first handling flailed from side to side biting me about 5 times on each hand until he realised I wasn't going to hurt him.
