So I posted some pics in an earlier thread of my new burmese Carmella. I bought her at the Seattle reptile expo from a very reputable breeder. So here's my issue I brought her home and got her out to move her from the tub I transported her in into her new enclosure(thats when the pics were taken). And she was great no aggression what so ever. I put her in the enclosure and she was great, she spent the first couple days chilling in her hide but still no problems. The breeder told me she would be ready to eat about a week after I got her home. So Sat. I bought her a F/T small mouse(the breeder said he tried F/T and she wouldn't take it) but I figured it was worth a try to give her one. When I got her out to put her in her feeding tub she was fine, still docile just hanging out on my hand. When I put her in the tub and got out the mouse she went nuts she started striking at me and caught me twice. So I got out a longer set of feeding tongs. This did little to no good she ignored the mouse and kept striking at me. So I left the mouse in with her to see if she would calm down and take it. I left it in there for 6 hours and she never showed a bit of interest but anytime I walked in to check her she struck like crazy at me thru the plexiglass. Okay so I have to feed my newest girl right? Maybe its the F/T mouse I think? So I go to the local pet store and get her a live mouse. She lets me pull the F/T mouse with my tongs with out to much pain. Yeah she did bite me once in the process. I got the live mouse out and same thing she was intent on taking my head off and no interest in the mouse. I kept trying this for about five minutes at a time for about 4 more hours before she took the mouse killed it left it laying and went back to trying to take my head off. Ok enough for one day, you wont die of starvation. I put her back into her enclosure( with a very long snake tender LOL). Next day boom she takes the mouse and eats it. This was 3-4 days ago. Everytime I even attempt to get into her enclosure or pick her up she attacks anything she can get her mouth on. I've got five nice bites on my right hand and three on my left and luckily she didn't make contact with my face. My question for any of the other burm owners. This is the first Baby baby burm I've owned (I usually rescue the poor babies when someone doesn't want them anymore). Is this standard for them. Why was she fine one minute and now she is like satans spawn. Do you think I should just leave her be for a couple weeks, or should I try working her thru this? I'm worried if I just leave her be for a couple weeks she may get even more aggressive.
