Many snakes will bite when threatened including constrictors. Milk snakes are constrictors. I once was bitten by one perhaps a foot long that I picked up and it certainly wasn't trying to constrict me. I released it a short time later without harming it as I realized it bit out of fear and not malice.

Okay it's time to band all knives. If he couldn't get a knife the snake would not of been hurt! While we are at it lets band everything that has ever been used to kill something with. Damn everything that I own would be taken away.

Snakes rarely pose a threat unless one threatens it first. Even most venomous snakes would be more than content to avoid human contact of any kind. So many of them are being killed unnecessarily.

yes , but we are not talking a pup as we are talking pitbull

milk/python are far different ... snakes bite to defend or feed

a constrictor being non-poisonous doesn't take a nip and zip

the bite is very very painful I never want a repeat

One great snake event i was lucky enough to watch...was the snake show, at the Rose Gardens, outside Bangkok, Thailand....they had many great snakes...showed how fast a King Cobra can be dispatched by a mongoose, it actually sprang at the cobra, biting down on it's closed mouth and crunching it in it's powerfull jaws...evidently few Peta people were in attendance...lol...also learned a King cobra can strike from the exact height that it can rise it's body, about 3-4 feet....they had these 12 year old thai boys dancing around, what they called this large springing snake, and it actually nailed one kid...thought these aussie girls were gonna have a heart attack...lol...then the guy say's..Springing snake is nonvenomous....great place, if your ever there...They also show how the elephants work in unison, to move these huge teak logs.....bought my nephew the skin of a King Cobra, unrolled out it was nine feet.....Sadly, alot of their souveniers are endangered species.....

I agree that all the larger pythons such as the Burmese Python should be banned as nost accidents involving serious injuries or death from pythons as well as snake caused pet disappearances are from the Burmese Python. The much smaller ball pythons should still be permitted as pets, but I would favor requiring permits to keep any non-native snake as a pet. We can really go overboard though on banning animals just because there are those that go feral such as pigs, cats, and dogs. I would also ban any venomous snake with the potential to sicken or kill a human being (there are a few mildly venomous snakes that are for all practical purposes harmless to people).

It all depends on the Python. There are some species that are not nearly large enough to inflict a very painful bite as they grow no larger than milksnakes.

While we do hear of a few indidences of "killer bee" attacks, most of is is overhyped and the only thing too many people believe about them was learned by watching movies. Yes they are more agressive, but they have a hard time establishing themselves in many areas as a single sudden cold snap can easily wipe out a "killer bee" colony. there is also evidence that some Africanized bee colonies are becoming tamer as they interbreed more. You need to watch fewer movies and more of the Discovery Channel.

Well despite my fascination with snakes, this is really about the guy...
Gotta think there's some real anger lurking inside this person, looking to get out.
This time it was a snake, next time.., who knows.

This is a guy you probably want to give a wide berth to.
That is, unless you've got similar issues.
