Hello Kayvon,

I have a question: judging by your picture does this subspecies of bamboo ratsnake become calm with age, to the point where you can actually handle it? I have a captive bred male from '06 and it's quite aggressive; when disturbed it will not hesitate to bite (the snake strikes with lightening speed, out of nowhere) for a single moment. The snake will also not sit still. Sometimes I manage to get it to crawl onto my hands (when I open the lid of the box I'm keeping it in, the snake often tries to escape out of the box, I can then let it crawl onto my hands), but the snake then directly jumps off my hands onto the ground. Does this behaviour sound somewhere familiar?

Thanks! With kind regards,

Bert Grit
