The first time mine got me he took me by surprise. He was asleep (or so I thought) up the other end of the tank so I decided to change his water. Whilst putting it back in I wasn't even thinking about him and the next thing I know, WHAM !, he's lunged from the other end of the tank and got me on the arm. Water went everywhere. LOL
i imagine he is very calm because ive been grabbing him behind the head and pulling skin off his head and the rest of his body and he hasnt shown any sign of aggression during that
even my sookie bredli wont put up with that hahaI love lamp.

All my aspidites have bad sheds. My woma & female BHP are perfectly fine with my massaging their old skin off, however. The male BHP has just shed his head only, so the rest needs to come off, although I'm not sure how that will go when he doesn't even want my hands in his enclosure.
I just watched your vid with sound this time, and although very brief, the audio commentary is hillarious !
The BHPs are mostly full of bluff & closed mouth strikes (head butt), but i would not like to get a full on bite from one.
The only time that i have been bit by one of my BHPs was a young snake & just a tag at feed time & i can tell you that they have very sharp little teeth & will cut you like a very sharp knife. Just as well they are full of bluff IMO.
IanDon't believe everthing you hear & read.
Sometimes experience & wisdom are better options.

It's a beautiful day, I think I'll skip my med's and stir things up a bit.

he has stuff in his tub to rub on and its humid in there so i dont know what the problem is. im not taking him to the vet as i know its not a husbandry issue on my behalf as i have never had this problem with 3 other snakes in almost 2 years. i doubt theres anything a vet can do that i cant do with the help of some experienced aps members!
im pretty sure the eye caps are off as the skin on top of his head came off, just the skin under his head wont come off for about 2 cms past his bottom lip. starting to really annoy me, especially since i read in an SXR article that retained shed can harbour bacteria
waaaaah hate snakes at the moment hahaI love lamp.

Check the most recent posts by Gruni. He mentions giving a bath in a solution of camomile tea. Might be worth a try ?
