I bought a new lemon blast ball python a couple of weeks ago at the reptile show I always go to. My son and I both held her and she seemed good tempered. The only thing they said was that she was shy. I let her settle into her environment for about a week. But, when I got her out she started striking and bit my 12 year old. I called the previous owner to ask what he thought. He said she could be hungry as it was getting close to time to feed her. We put her back and then fed her in a separate enclosure. She ate good and I put her back. We left her alone for 48 hours. I also did research on snappy snakes. So I'm the one that is working with her. I have gotten her out each day and handled her but if anything is in front of her she is striking at it. I've held several different pythons and have never seen one that strikes like her. The other day I was leaning over the screen to check the temp and humidity and she struck right at my face. I'm leaning towards returning her for a different snake if she doesn't improve. My other ball python was very calm and seemed to like being handled. Thoughts?
