    It was bound to happen. I was switching on my retic's light and she was awake, so I thought I'd take her out for a bit. Realized she was not only awake but also had the "hungry look" a second too late. Oops. She let go almost immediately, but I'm now on notice that cute little baby retic has grown into hungry adolescent retic, and sticking my hand in her face without warning is asking for trouble. So I'll be picking up a hook. Not that she's aggressive in any way, but the hook will be to get her attention more than anything else.

    I'm just glad it happened at 5' rather than 15'.

    Have you thought about trying hook training?

    Yes, that's why I'm planning on picking up a hook.

    OK, good luck then:) I'm kind of envious, I've always liked retics but they're still waaay beyond my experience level and financial/spatial capabilities;)

    Yes, even at only 6' she is definitely a lot of snake, and I swear I can see her growing by the day! She wasn't planned, my daughter and a friend found her back in January.

    I did get a small snake hook and so far so good. As soon as I touch her she relaxes and I can pull her right out. But I will eventually need a bigger hook, I know they have large padded ones for moving pythons, that's what I'll go to next.
