Ok, our large female Boa is getting increasingly aggressive lately. She is almost 8 feet, and 22 pounds, and has always been a little temperamental. Went to get her out today, and she wanted no part of it. Most of her aggression tends to be cage related. Once she is out, she is generally fine. So - changes in the future: Larger cage (Upgrade from 4x2x2 to 8x3x3 in March) Feed in her bin again (we used to - mostly fell out of habit because of laziness. Totally my fault.) More frequent handling. Akasha is a very smart boa - I do not need her thinking that biting gets her off the hook for anything. As always, I am sure she thinks she had a good reason to bite me, and I probably earned it. As I tell people, it is an occupational hazard. Here are the pics. That was my first though for you guys after it happened.
