My girlfriend got tagged!!

Postby CoN » Mon Nov 08, 2010 12:13 am

Hi peeps.
Just thought Id shared this with you all.
Today my gf got tagged (her fault). Ive started with the three Corn snakes, warming up there mice (one I had to use the hairdryer on one mouse) so my room were fulled with the smell of food.
Me and my gf got this routine, she takes out the snakes while I get the food ready with the tongs (As we feed all our snakes outside the vivs/rubs).
Ok finished with the Corns, its the Ball`s turn. I saw our(actually my gf`s) Albino - Peyote is more active then usual. I told Tanya "ok we`ll feed her first". As I turned my back to get the rat fluff ready, all I heard were "Ooo no *@~#$" I turned around and saw she got tagged. I just knew what happened, because its her snake, she first wanted to play and say hi to Peyote. That's the last thing you do when your Ball knows it feeding time.

Time line 20:38 - Got tagged
20:46 - Still no sign of letting go, the more Tanya moves her hand the more Peyote constricts.
20:55 - I though I should try and get the Ball to release, as I lifted Tanya`s hand she released.

I don't get it. So you just stood there watching, taking photos? Did it really take you 20 minutes to dawn on you that your gf might be in pain?

I would also have left the snake alone, as more damage can be inflicted to both hand and snake by forceful removal.

I can just picture the whole episode in my mind, my wife would have been hysterical :D :D :D

That's a Micro Dermal Anchor or Surface Piercing by the looks of things.

hehehehe, i know it sounds funny, but i wish my girl friend can get tagged once.
She loves her snakes, but she`s so scared they will bite her hey, so maybe after a bite she will be more at ease with them, and see that it`s not all that painful.

I'm terrified of being bitten but at the same time will be quite happy the first time it happens.

I'd be going around showing everyone my first python bite!

Lol was the same with me, was so surprised.
Although after I washed of the blood the bitemarks were quite dissapointing, they were very small.
Pushed out a broken tooth though!
(also a ball python bite)

Thank you! By forceful removal you can damage or break off some of the Ball python`s teeth.

Hehe, It's funny to see people remember their first bite. lol And the best, what snake it was that gave them their first bite. Eventually when, say for instance a retic (personal experience) bites me now, I just push my hand further into his/her face and then it let's go of my hand. Blood all over. Especial when taking photos. :lol: :lol: . People just can't believe I am being so calm about it. :lol: . ''Hey!!! Do you know a snake just bit you!!?'' :cool:
