Ball python acting really defensive?
For the past two weeks, he has been extremely defensive in his tank, every time I go near his tank, he comes out of his hide and rises right up to the glass in a striking position, a couple of times I ve put my hand near the tank and hes actually tried to strike me. I ve been too nervous about getting him out of his tank! But I did the other day and once I had him he was literally fine.
I thought it might be because he was about to shed and was feeling a bit weird, but he s just shed and he s still acting like it.
Temps are all good, he has 2 hides and plenty of foliage in his tank, and always has fresh water.
