Just curious if anyone has encountered a young ball python that for whatever reason hates everything that moves?
I recently picked up a female GHI which is about 5months old, and from the moment I collected her she tries to strike anything with a heat signature, including the breeder when she handed her to me Ive tried handling her regularly to try get her to understand I am no threat, but can honestly say I think it’s making no difference whatsoever I have to distract her with one hand while scooping her from behind. Once she is in my hands she is “OK” as long as I don’t move a hand passed her but if someone walks past or the dog does METRES AWAY she will strike in the direction.
Ultimately it doesn’t bother me, she eats well and is growing healthily. I find it quite interesting and it keeps me on my toes because all my others are dog tame. I’m just curious if anyone else has had this issue and how they handle it?
Question is open to anyone
Thanks in advance
