i have 2 ball pythons and one loves to nail me lately. if u ask if it hurts not really just scarey .the speed the accuracy. im pretty sure both time i was mistaken for food
Snakes can't see very well. Most are nocturnal and hunt at night in the wild. They rely on other senses like smell. No doubt Raggie's snake striked at movement thinking his arm was food. People that I've known with snakes fed them live prey, rats, chickens, and such.No offense, there might legit be something mentally wrong with your snake if it keeps mistaking you for food.
