    Hi all, We have an amel corn snake that we've had for just over a year. We've handled her pretty much every day, except after feeding or while shedding, and maybe the odd day or two break. (Note we call her "her" but we have not sexed her). We've fed her in a separate box for most of this...

    I aqquired this beautiful snake about a year ago with the idea to tame and keep it or rehome it, It was handled from a young age but by the time it came to me it had not had the handling required to tame it, leaving it extremely Viv defensive and a generally intolertant snake. I cleaned it up...

    Evening all, I have a make a a female bearded dragon. They have always been very tame and love to be taken out and cuddled, the male actually prefers to be fed outside of his viv. In the last couple of days he has become increasingly upset when anyone comes close to the viv and just now was...

    I've had my royal around 2-3 weeks now, and the first few days he was fine, up until the start of last week I could handle him, and he didn't mind it much but after around 2 minutes he was getting a little defensive each time so I put him back. But now, I can't get near him without him balling...

    Hello, I have had my 15 month old carpet python for a week now and the second day I got her was her feeding day (Saturday). The owners before said she was on pinkie rats so for her first feed I fed her a pinkie rat and then my plan was to give her rat fluffs for the next two weeks and then small...

    Hey everyone :) I bought a male approx 1 and a half year old BCI late last year and found him to be very tame, maybe a little skittish and fast but had no problem removing him from his little rub, which had a lid that opened from above, that i kept him in whilst i was waiting a few weeks for the...

    We got Loki out for the first time today after being bitten twelve times on Saturday, putting him in his temporary housing.... Chels got him out, without getting bit! He was as good as gold, he went for us a few times but never seemed to follow through, like a bluff strike, spent most of the...

    My snake struck at me today and was about a cm away from biting me. It's weird cos he has a great temperament and has never done it before. All i did was go to stroke him and i figure he could have been a little spooked? Anyone got any other theories as i'd b glad to know of em.

    Hello all on RFUK. On new year I purchased my third snake, a 2 year old male Jaguar carpet python. He is a lovely colour and my friend also purchased a female jungle from the same people, with possible plans in the far off future to breed. It was made clear that the Jaguar was snappy, which I...

    right, everyone i'm sure knows that some snakes have bad reputations compared to others, in terms of "aggression," etc. but from my own experiences plus what i've read on here and elsewhere, and just heard people say...so many of these reputations are wholly undeserved!! a few i am aware of...
