Baby Carpet Problem *coastals*

I bought a yearling Carpet who was sort of agressive. Within two days he tamed down dramatically; I could pick her up with confidence. About a week after owning her, we bought a female Carpet adult. The adult was a change of pace; much more relaxed and not skiddish at all. Well the baby went through a shed while this adult was brought home, so I really wasnt holding her much. She finally shed yesterday, and I began to pick her up again. Something happened though. She seemed a little edgy, and really wirey. For the first time she actually bit me. The adult females cage is right next to the yearlings.
Do you think her scent is offending the baby python? Does she just need time to get used to this? I have Ball pythons and when I brought a new one home they never acted different. They say baby Bloods are nurvous and edgy, but I think baby Carpets take the cake on that...my baby Blood is just as tame as any docile Ball i've ever encountered. Any ideas why my yearling is getting bitchy all of a sudden? Thanks to anyone in advance.
