    Jungle hatchlings have a bit of a reputation for being snappy little biters, but 5 months old Domino is a little sweetheart.
    Domino was bred by @Yellowtail and is a beautiful little Julatten Jungle with a great temperament.

    Thank you for sharing your video. Although having a bad wrap Jungle Hatchies can be placid. Beautiful baby and glad yours are great.

    I just adopted a two year old that thinks it is Jaws. But I know also from experience that if you are patient with a difficult python and teach it in the correct way you can end up with a very calm snake.
    Good luck and thanks for your post

    Regards Rob

    Pleased to see Domino is settling in well. You obviously have an empathy with reptiles that they recognise and are not stressed. I learned this as a young boy catching wild reptiles around Perth, the secret was to be gentle and non-threatening, even dugites, tigers and large monitors could be free handled but you had to be able to read their body language. Not recommended for the inexperienced but I was never bitten.

    I have one of Ken's as well! I suspect from the same clutch. I called him Snapdragon but he's a bit of a sweety.

    Such handsome snakes.
