Wow, Ipanda, I am impressed. Honestly, when if I get bit, it will take me more than a few days to feel comfortable again. That's not to say that I would of get rid of Roxy, it's just to say that I'd be scared as **** for a week or so. Hey, that's my human side. Lizardgal06 had touched on this issue, but I have nothing to lose on this site so I'll just throw it out to the experts.......can/will/may a snake act differently, perhaps more aggressive, if their handler is in menses? I am not saying that was a factor. I am a firm believer in TMI, but I've wanted to know anyway. Have you started with the training and if so, how is it going?
