: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.


Actually I don't think chondros are any different to handle than jungles. Even my WC chondros are calm and gentle as can be, and that's more than I can say for a LOT of jungles I've seen. Of the 9 chondros I have, only 2 will bite. One is a Biak, and the other is my large female, which bites mostly out of feeding response.

Of the 6 jungles I had, and all were adults, only one was flighty and would bite. I sold them to get more chondros, and I still can't get enough. I think most snakes tend to stress out when handled, but some just handle the stress better than others.
