Hey guys, my first post! I picked up a 2ish year old stimson's python at the reptile exo WA on the weekend. I actually brought it for my dad as he is waiting for his license and then it will be transferred to him. Anyway the guy wouldn't let us hold it for "safety reasons", this snake is so evil! She strikes the glass when she sees a person in the reptile room. We let her be for 6 days before we tried to get her out. She wont eat at all. She only seems calm when it's only myself in the room but i don't feel comfortable getting her out. I have 2 other snakes in there and my pet rats. How do i get her to calm down? We can't even touch her or clean her cage without stricking :/ I have seen a post on here saying that having rodents in the same room can turn a snake evil. I will take them out but i still think she has been bitey for years now and thats why he wouldn't let us hold it even when we put money in his hand :/ i feel sorry for my dad what can i do?!
