By all means, offer explanations for those really weird ones (ones you know others will probably ask you about if you don’t offer one…:p…or heck, even with a “ordinary” biting if there’s a story behind it).
Turtle - feeding it for a friend. It hurt. A lot.
My list, I’m sure, is pretty sheltered compared to others.
Go on and prove me right.
Dog - I’ve been bitten twice in particular, both times by German Shepards. In the ass.
Squirrel - mine
Skunk - also mine
Birds - several, but the worst was a Sulpher Crested Cockatoo
Snakes - biggest was a six foot boa, worst was a Mexican Black Kingsnake - little bugger wouldn’t let go!
Argentine Horned Frog - they have teeth!
Wasp - yes, bitten not stung. I had jam on my finger. The wasp decided to take a bite with it’s mandibles. Quite a pinch!
Working at a zoo does have it’s interesting moments!
Dog - Still have the scar on my calf. I deserved it.
Cat - Playing too rough.
Horse - Was just minding my own business and got chomped on the shoulder.
Chinchila - Tried to pick it up. It did not want to be picked up.
Gerbil - Ditto.
Human - Was fighting the kids older brother. Younger brother jumped on my back and bit me.
Bees sting more than bite, don’t they? Ants SFAIK, can sting and bite, depending.
Under insects I could add flies, fleas, gnats, ticks… heck, who knows how many bugs have bitten me over the years?
I could also add under birds: at least one or two pigeons, parakeets, ducks & geese. Parrots tend to have pretty strong beaks, so I keep my bitable appendages out of range.
I used to catch lizards and they routinely bite. At least one or two snakes, the non-venomous grass-type.
Guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, - they’ve all probably gotten a chunk of me at some point.
Do fish count? They sorta suck on you more than bite, but I’ve had plenty of fish nibble at me.
Hermit crabs. I used to go down to the beach and let the hermit crabs nibble at my toes. I guess they find athlete’s foot tasty or something, but they really go to town on the more or less dead, rough, calloused skin.
Since you’ve linked to this, I won’t repeat my whole list of the usual animal bites–I’ll just mention the swan again. I don’t think anyone else mentioned being bitten by a swan.
Story? It happened at a lovely lake in Lucerne, Switzerland, about 20 years ago at Christmas-time when I was a student on my holiday travels. There were a number of swans on the lake and I was feeding them; they were mostly quite tame and you could feed them by hand. As I was holding out a piece of bread to one swan, another, larger swan decided that he had more right to that bread than the smaller swan, and shoved it out of the way. I was not going to reward this bad behavior, and offered the bread again to the smaller swan–and that’s when the big guy grabbed two fingers of my hand with his bill.
I was wearing gloves, so I was only pinched hard, no broken skin.
The usual suspects, plus a gooney bird (Layson Albatross) on Midway. In Nam there was a “Blister Bug”, or beetle, that left a secretion on the skin causing blistering. Had one crawl across my upper lip while I was sleeping. Painful, but it went away in a day or two.
Snake (Checkered Keelback - nasty little fuckers, non-venemous, but the bite hurt like a sonofabitch. Also had a VERY close shave with a baby cobra, which, ounce-for-ounce, is more venomous than an adult)
Dog (my friend’s doberman, we were play rough-housing, and suddenly he went postal. The only dog thats ever done this)
Cat (my kid sister’s persian cat. This one I deserved.)
Macaw (“Who’s a pretty poll…OUCH!”)
Monkey (Bad one, this. Happened when I was 4 years old, more than 22 years ago, and I still have the scars. My right forearm got the worst of it, since I was using the arm to fend off the nasty flea-ridden bastard. Gashes from the monkey’s teeth were all the way down to the bone. Totally unprovoked, too. Nuke all the unevolving fuckers, I say).
A radioactive spider (I’m no longer a girl-shy nerd, my webcrawling is the stuff of legends, and once I get a hold of Sam Raimi for getting that wimp Toby Macguire to play me on the big screen, I’m going to shoot this spiderweb up his ass!)
Human (In her defense, she got a little carried away with by my amorous ministrations. Woohoo - hicky city.)
Praying mantis (it stung just a little, but mostly it startled the hell out of me).
Hognose snake (painless)
Chameleon lizard (one of the small ones that hang around on porches and walkways in the South. Didn’t hurt at all, but he wouldn’t let go, and since it was my chin he bit, I called him my “lizard goatee”.)
Two small snakes (they were just frightened, poor things)
Mosquitoes (Bloody bastards)
Ferret (did my foot look tasty?)
Several types of birds, nearly every bird I owned, although most were just pinches.
Hamster (fucker drew blood!)
Dog (more of a nibble really)
The fire ants hurt the worst, of course - I had scars for years, I tell you!
The horse was kind of painful, too - sumbitch bit my shoulder when I had my back to him; he may have been trying to eat my hair.
