    Thank you. I took her out Saturday and we went to a local pet store along with Shiva and Bob. Everyone had fun seeing and holding her. One person who was terrified 4 weeks ago walked right up and asked to hold her again. She has gotten so she doesn't want to go back in the box and tries to run out before you get the lid on. I know all her tricks but spend most of the 2 hours holding her. she would wrap around my arm a few times and lap over my shoulder and try to go to sleep. I think one guy spooked her. She tensed up when he wanted to try to hold her and I refused to let him. He was cool with that considering her reaction. After he left she relaxed. No clue as to why? I always keep a close eye on her. It is so amazing to share my love of herps with people and toss some education out there. I get asked about feeding her a lot. Mostly what she eats and if it is live or pre-killed. I let them know the dangers of feeding live and I get the "I didn't think about that!" a lot. I also get the question "What do I think is a great starter snake?" a lot. My usual answer is corn snakes or king snakes. I love BPs but I think they are not as active and most people who want an interesting pet, loose interest over time with their pet rock. I love my BPs very much.

    I am so happy she has such a great personality. I love the fact that she expresses her feelings so well. All you have to do is pay attention. Not sure why she runs to some people and refuses others? I just respect it when it happens. The kids that come by all love her.

    Could it be something about their scent? Maybe heavy perfumed or too much after shave or maybe not enough , just a guess but like people some will just rub you wrong maybe? So glad to hear that people are interested in learning about retics verse being frightened and believe they are all human eating monsters, maybe you could do some things like Brian Gundy

    Re: Rainbow is my new SunTiger female reticulated python progression.

    So last night I was going to take Rainbow out to handle her before feeding day which is today. She was in a bad mood. She did not strike but she was pushing my hand away telling me she wanted me to leave her alone. I reached in and spot cleaned with her in the enclosure and she watched me but tried to ignore me in hopes I would do the same. Guess she was not in the mood to be bothered. I have her a nice rabbit defrosting. I know she is hungry.

    Re: Rainbow is my new SunTiger female reticulated python progression.

    Took her out last night. You can see how she got her name. She is as big around as a softball. 9' 8" as best I could measure. 20lbs. She does have a rabbit digesting though. Did not handle her much. Fed her Friday. I think she will have no issue waiting the full 7 days this week (I hope). I did let her explore the house a little on her own. She went back home after about 30 min and curled up in her hide. Here is the photo.

    Is it a hide or hat? I will be building her a larger one tomorrow after work.
