    Hi guys, So, as the title mentions, my python went haywire on me today behind the glass, as I walked by. She struck about 5-6 times against the glass, really hard, scooping a motherload of lignocel along the way. (For the people who know viperkeeper on youtube, he would've called her a toad...

    Ok, looking for advice. I have a 7 year old Rainbow Boa, for years 0-5 ish he was handled 2-3 times a month, was pretty friendly, and only struck/bit once in the whole time. Then came a very very ugly divorce, custody mess, a couple moves. It has been about 2 years since he has been handled...

    First of all I will add don't believe it wasn't out of the blue, but I did miss the signs and it has been bugging me. I don't know what triggered it as he is quite placid. So I have this 9 year old male- I had him for a year- he is handled by me and others and he is quite calm, thought I would...

    I recently purchased a hand tame Hognose with full setup (minus a heat mat) from a breeder that had to sell on his collection. This wasn't an impulse buy, I’ve been hoping to get a hog for months and thought I had done all the research. He was a lovely snake for just over a week and very easily...

    I have had my royal python for about three years now. I took him out earlier and soaked him in some water as he is about to shed. I always do this with my snakes and have never had any problems. He has always been very docile and has never shown any aggression towards me. However today, he was...

    hey guys, just looking for some advice, I have a boa, just coming up to 2 years old, he has always been the most docile snake and just recently he's getting more aggressive. I don't think he is angry, I think its just a feeding response. Its only ever when we have mice out for feeding or in...

    Hello, I just tried to feed my year and a half old royal python a mouse but I fear I may have used too hot of water when warming the mouse before feeding him. He striked and constricted the mouse for a couple minutes but then let go and held his mouth open for a little bit. He was then moving...

    Hi there! I just this week bought a Baby (5 months) old Jag Carpet Python and she's gorgeous! I want to handle her loads so she gets used to me but I've just approached the tank to handle her for the first time today and she's being very defensive/strikey. My question is should I ensure I get...

    Hi All :2thumb: I've had my baby corn for 2 weeks now and she still isn't interested in food, I'm not so worried about that as I've read and been told that it can take a while for them to settle in. I have noticed over the last week that her skin is getting duller in color. She's a moody...

    Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone else has a royal that's sometimes an angry little sod? Mine was hatched late 2012 and is eating fine (always has) but recently he seems to like striking at me in his rub and I don't mean just once. The only time he is really in his hide is after a feed...

    OK peeps. Need some tips please!!! HOW do you go about picking up a hissing, gaping, striking, very very bitey snake??? If they've got themselves to that point do you leave them alone and go back later on or do you keep going? Tried to take a shed skin out of the male dwarf boa's RUB this...
