So I have 2 ball pythons (in separate tanks), male & female. I'm not 100% on their age but I want to say the female is about 5-6 months and the male is about 4-5 months. My female is super sweet and lovable, doesn't mind when I handle her, ever! But the male he's always been defensive, whenever I go in his tank to clean or even when I pass by the tank he strikes at me. I have yet to get bit, but when he strikes he doesn't stop and he whips his tail. I used to keep him in a much larger tank than he's in now thinking that might be the problem, and his temperatures are at about 80/90f day and 75/80f night. I tried handling him more often, and I tried just leaving him alone, I feel like I've run out of options. If I could get some help I would really appreciate it!
