If a snake is sitting still and not biting you, of course it loves you! Love IS defined as a lack of fear... isn't it? I don't have a GTP, partly because I can't afford one, especially a blue stripe, and partly because I'm sure about my skills keeping the temperature level, although I am getting better with humidity levels. To whoever started this thread (I'm tired)- Jungle carpet pythons are a lot like GTP's and a little easier to handle. At least my three are still alive. And they stress out a bit when I handle them, but they don't bite. They're just flightly and like to climb things.
