I have both my hoggies in faunariums and they're fine.
Hissing is just something they do.

Whats his hatch date and how long you had him.
Could just be a case of youth and infrequent handling. I handle my pair less often than ever and I've started to notice it, though my wee males always been a bit of an egit. My larger male has started hissing in hand.
It'll soon stop I'm sure. Faunariums rock.

Hi all

Let him settle in for at least two weeks before handleing just change his water.
How would you feel if an almighty hand came into your house and grabbed you took you somewhere you did not no you would be scared.

The only thing a snake can do is hiss rattle its tail and strike with hoggies it's just bluff with a closed mouth,, after it has settled in begin to handle it little and often and build the time up with it, leave it alone for 2 days after feeding.

My female gives you the works once in your hand she is very good and just explores, hoggies are little charecters they are all different you will get to no him/her.
