    Hi everyone. I'm new to this site and to reptile keeping. I have (from what I believe) a coastal/diamond python that's a little over a year old. He/she has only just started to let me handle it without being snappy. It's name is George (four year old stepson named it).

    Welcome to APS, and the world of reptile-keeping. Be warned, it can become very addictive! :)

    Thank you. My dad has a spotted python and a black headed python so I can see how it can be. :)

    Hi,

    Nice little snake and your stepson couldn't have given it a better name...like I tell everyone it's the name of kings...:lol:

    Cheer,

    George.

    Nice George of the jungle bracelet! Did it come with any lineage history? Why was it snappy up until now? You seem to have it under control.

    No we don't have any history unfortunately. We have not had it for long and it has been really cage defensive, this is the second handle since it's first shed since we have owned it so may have something to do with it?
