hey guys !
Just a quick question with some observations, taking my scrubby out today i noticed when she got stressed she used the back of her tail wiggling it like a worm, tactical defence ? tried looking it up but found nothing
she did not seem happy

Being excited doesn't necessarily mean happy,it can also mean agitated.
Tassie shes still a bit to small to have a feed on me, and Ramsayi thanks for that, had a feeling it was a tactical defense move so she can get away

Quite a few snakes do it, red bellies sometimes curl their tails into a ball and hit you with it, feigning a bite with a false head.sans livor
