    Yeah, she was definitely not happy about something. I was shocked to say the least. She had just eaten a jumbo rat 3 days ago and pooped yesterday so I was cleaning her cage. I've always spot cleaned her enclosure with her right there. It was a good reminder though that's they're still wild animals and anything can happen at anytime. Lesson learned. She was quiet inside her warm hide this morning but I didn't bother her.

    @ Reinz- She's a tad larger than my coastal but he didn't eat from November to April. The scrub is actually doing pretty good these days. I've learned it's best to take him out when he's in one of his hides. He's more difficult to deal with if he's perched. He hasn't struck at me in a couple of months but he still musks from time to time.

    I agree, that is one beautiful snake! So is the Bull!
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    That’s interesting about your Coastal, all three of mine skipped a lot of meals this winter as well. But now they’re trying to make up for it. They are constantly begging, even if only they just eaten a jumbo rat a few days before. I guess because they are all fully sexual mature now; as far as winter appetite suppression.

    Glad to hear that the Scrub’s behavior has smoothed out! And that you made that connection of the difference between the hide and perch- smart!

    All I can think of is that when you went to "spot clean" her enclosure, you didn't really identify yourself & maybe she was sleeping? The adult bull snakes I've kept never
    bit me either & seemed very capable of telling me from prey (I typically give them my scent first). If she has taken a dislike to you reaching in (within strike range) you
    can just put something in the way (like a piece of cardboard) to block her from seeing your "intrusion". I often do that with my large Florida rat snakes if they are in their
    hides & I want to spot clean...I just block the door-way (with a ping-pong paddle) so they don't get "excited" & fly out after the motion (me), hoping it's a snack...
