Ok I've had males all my life and final have a female now and she was sweet and loving and now the B bites me and anyone else that handles her now. I've had her for 6 months and never had an issue until now. She just started acting like this. I have nieces and I'm afraid that she will strike one of them. She is 5.5 feet long... it's this a sign she is wanting to mate or what.. cause this is getting annoying. Can someone please help.
