Totally unexpected, he's never bitten before. He's about a year old. I was handling him and he was fine, fed him like I usually do and went to put him in the box we use for feeding him and he struck. No warning or anything. I didn't frighten him, he saw me coming. His mate is fine, she's acting her usual self. Anyone have any idea what might have caused him to bite?
Honey, aren't you pregnant? Can a bite from a reptile pose any threat to your or your baby? (ps. I know nothing about snakes and don't want to be alarmist but it did come to mind when I read your post)
