    Wow, Dave, that's gnarly! It definitely could have been worse. I'll make sure Rick sees this thread so he can chime in.

    I have been bit by a large burm in the face before, that is no joke. Glad it was just superficial!

    Thanks, was yours a feeding response or aggression? I think I may have found the reason for mine. A friend brought to my attention that there may have been some food smell that may have gotten on the carpet where it struck....but who knows...lol could have been anything

    Mine was at the top of a Vision cage stack, where I had to get up on a step stool. Just poor protocol- stepped up quick, opened the cage, poked my head up to look in and WHAM, got tagged, and good. Was a startled response, not a feeding response.

    I never led with my head again after that...

    I feel "Never lead with your head" needs to be a t-shirt slogan.

    I heard you wanted a male tiger to make some supers Dave. I'll sell you my 14ft male for $350. Super mellow snake, very curious but doesn't offer to bite, pounding rabbits and ready for any girls you can throw at him.
