What’s up, morph marketers!
I have a question for you keepers more experienced than myself. I have an 8 month old toffeeconda western hognose. I just weighed her today and she came in at 61g. She is currently eatting 1 small f/t mouse every 7 days.
Lately, for like the last month or so, she has been very aggressive. It all started when I mishandled her at feeding time and she bit me. It was totally my fault being new and inexperienced. Since then she has been a monster. I cannot touch her without her striking at me. When I go to feed her she doesn’t even go for the mouse anymore. She is looking to bite me.
I believe all other aspects of her husbandry are in order. Currently as I type this her hot side hide is at 89°F and her cool side is at 72°F. I am using a UTH with a thermostat to regulate her temps. She has roughly 3 inches of aspen to burrow into. She has a water bowl large enough for her to soak in if she wanted to. She has a lot of leaf cover to hide in. 2 hides and a stick to climb on if she ever felt the urge. She is currently housed in a 40 gallon front opening exo terra.
I just want to know if I am doing something wrong. She used to be cool with being handled. She would hang out on my desk with me while I worked. Ever since she bit me she has the taste for blood.
Either way she is my beautiful little danger noodle and I love her. Just looking to yous guys to see if I should be doing anything different.
