I bought a sunglow female approx 7.5 feet online. Have never bought this way before but always wanted one and seemed like a good price. Snake arrived and I transferred to cage. Gave a few days to destress. Snake strikes when you walk by or anytime you attempt to open cage door. I'm concerned because the owner said it was puppy dog tame, and even more so because it has mites. I'm concerned about getting the boa into an enclosure I can treat the mite problem. It's so aggressive I don't think I will want to keep it but would like to get it rid of the mites and find it a new home. I've never had a snake this aggressive and I'm afraid of getting bit and or the snake getting hurt. Any suggestions are welcome.
