    Bwahahahahah I will show you the devil incarnate here in a few hours. Its funny your Cinnys are possessed too so is my girl. But holy crap the feeding response is intense! But shes nailed me almost every time I try and move something around in her cage or feed her. Little shister.

    My only "possessed" snake is a Korean rat snake that I wrongly assumed would be similar to the much-loved* Russian rat snakes (*for their calm nature).
    Handling him is more like handling a coachwhip/racer type snake- a light touch needed, too much restraint will get you teeth! From his cage, he is always
    lunging if I'm nearby (& yes, he will bite, he's not bluffing); his appetite is robust, & he grabs his f/t mouse violently & pulls it into a hide to consume. Just such
    a nervous wreck, even with his cage in the quietest corner of my house. Silly and he's about 10 years old, btw...not "growing out of it", lol.

    To funny, your right feeding is easy my girl hits the f/t rat 15 times to tenderize then coils it. Although some times she gets so pissed i have to leave it in there as the only thing she wants to do is tag my face.

    My cinny girl had quite an attitude too when I first got her. She doesn't strike anymore, but still hisses sometimes and doesn't like being held. I've heard a lot of people complain about cinnamons. I'm beginning to wonder if there's something to it.

    My tanimbar scrub python basically jumps straight out of her skin whenever I touch her Literally jumps up into the air with her entire body as if she had feet! She's hyper sensitive to touch and everything really.

    Also is my foodiest (next to one of my ball pythons) and hones into heat very quickly and tends to bite without thinking LOL. All my feeding videos of her include me moving my hand away from her cage door super quickly after I open it.

    She's also pretty unpredictable and doesn't seem to use clear body language like any of my other snakes. Sometimes she will seem calm and decide not to strike. Other times, she behaves the exact same way but then suddenly strikes a few times in a row without any defensive behavior beforehand. I honestly have no idea what is going through her mind LOL.
