Fred,

Thanks for the advice. A vet check is certainly a good idea. I'm concerned that a health problem might be the cause of this. But she seems pretty healthy presently. She just had a perfect one piece shed and her feeding response is still quite strong. She doesn't seem like a sick snake to me, but I'm not very experienced. Do you have any opinions about her coming into sexual maturity as a possible cause for this? Maybe another possibility is retained eye caps? It doesn't look like it, but I'm not experienced, so I might not pick up on it. It really is an amazing overnight transformation from kitten tame to mean as snot.

Also, I must say that I'm dissapointed at the general lack of response on this forum with regard to husbandry questions. Seems like Fred is the only one answering such questions. I know there are a lot of experienced snake keepers/breeders on this forum, but they seem reluctant to share their knowledge. Maybe there is a better forum somewhere for people with basic husbandry questions.
