    Today we picked up a MBK from a friend of the wife, whom could no longer care for it due to a fear that came from the snake biting her a couple of times, and new fella having a proper phobia of snakes in general! This fear has meant the snake hasn't been cared for correctly for some time. The...

    Hi guys 1st post.. my female burm 5months old has just come out of a feeding strike. I've had this problem before so nothing to worry about so much. She's a little on the small side for her age but healthy still. I started feeding her in the viv to keep stress levels to a minimum witch i've...

    Hi I have a female dwarf sonoran boa - Andromeda. She appears to be displaying hunting behaviour all the time - she has a shelf in her viv and she hangs over it in an "S" coil - if you then move towards her viv or try and open the door she will move very sharply and swing round quickly and...

    Hi, I have a two year old amel corn snake. He is my schools old snake. He has become a bit defensive recently. He has always been a bit viv defensive because when he was at my old school he was hurt with a ruler and handled a bit roughly. So he has always been a bit defensive because of this...

    I've had my pastel boa now for 4 days and she was due a feed on the day I got her I didn't want to offer him food straight away and freak her out, seeing as shes still settling in. I decided to take her out today to feed her in a rub, but she was VERY unhappy about being picked up from her viv...

    ok so my Taiwanese beauties have become super aggressive/viv defensive since they got put in their 4x2x2 -to the point they are striking at the glass as we go past, and trying to attack you when trying to change the water or get them out etc. I was thinking putting something over the glass...

    I've got two different colubrids - a Mexi Black and a Caramel Anery corn and they're both doing the same thing. Getting the Mexi out of her RUB is a nightmare - she rattles, musks and does everything possible to avoid being taken out. When she's out, she's perfect. She explores, sits still...

    Sorry i'm sure this has been asked before but can't find any threads... My Jungle Jag is fine when she is out of the viv, definitely a lot tamer than when i first got her. But as soon as a hand goes in her viv she does the "s" thing and fake strikes (better than a real strike i suppose) I have...

    I have been wondering if snakes in the wild have been known to be territorial? We all know that snakes can be viv defensive. I would be interested to know if there is any information to suggest that snakes would defend a certain terriory in their natural environment or if they just wonder...
