What the snake is showing in the picture is the first stage of itís defensive behavior. Inflating the neck and tongue flickering. My trio are CB, I have them since 2013 and they will still react defensive if I come from above them. Occasionally they will bite even in situations they would usually just be curious, they are sometimes a little unpredictable. So I doubt that this kind of behavior will fade with time, especially if most movements will be above the snake.

Helluva an enclosure!! Did you build that yourself or did you purchase it? And how much did it cost?

I'm thinking of something along this line (4'x2'x6')...
