Default Stupidity knows no boundaries

I recently needed to clear out my garage and decided to spread the work over a weekend. On Friday night I innocently moved my 4 rat breeding cages into my snake room and got to work. On Saturday i changed water etc in my snake tanks and Cheeky, my agro red tail zapped me. I thought nothing of it as she is by nature nasty. That afternoon i did maintenance and checked lamps, heaters etc. Well within minutes Cheeky zapped me again and my large female got me twice. Even Castro my docile gentle boy had a go but just got a glancing hit. I was devestated. What could have corrupted my boy? Then i realised! The rat tanks must have been like a all-you-can-eat lunch to a survivor of weight watchers! Lets say it was a blood bath and a lesson well learnt.

LMAO! It's ok Greg. We've all done it at some point. The day I bought Arty, I had him around my hand and I was talking to the owner of Bushhill Rodents, not even thinking anything about where I was standing .... Arty struck, I looked down, put him back in his bag and took him away from the smorgasbord lol

Clearly a whiff sticks around for awhile as 4 days later everyone still seems to be in a feeding frenzy. I will never recover from this.
