I have seen my fair share of wild caught Angolan Dwarf Pythons and I have never even seen one try to bite! That is strange behaviour.

I also thought ball pythons did not bite. I have never had a wild caught one bite me but captive breds have nailed me a few times. The nastiest one I ever picked up was an albino.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

@BV
Hey you convinced me to buy a BP at the expo and now you tell me this about them, nice going ;)

Wouldnt trade Dante (BP) for anything in the world though!!!
I know that I am in my own world, but it's okay. They know me here...

I have had my ball for 5 yrs and she has never tried, I also bought a captive male and I have seen him strike once at somebody, but because of sudden movement.
Their temperament is just awesome.

My male bp is a demon in disguise, i have to sneak quietly and quickly past his cage, otherwise he knocks his head on the glass. My female is very shy though, hides away!
