Hey brains trust, just wondering if anyone else has had this experience with their olive python, and whether it stops as they get older. He's about a year and a bit old, cage defensive but otherwise a good handler, quite placid and mostly calm, has his days though. Lately when he's being handled, he'll be calmly exploring, then start tongue flicking a spot on my arm, then nuzzle it, then slowly open his jaws and bite down. Most of the time I've got enough time to get my arm out the way. It's not an aggressive response, it's almost like he's confused about whether my arm is food or not, and decides he'll give it a go. This has been directly after a shower too so there's been no odd smells on me.
