Re: carpet python afraid to come out

I turn it on when I enter the room. She is already out or not. But in my experience it doesn't make them flee. When they are young they usually hide. Mine did, and when I held her she tried hard to get away now she is calmer and chilled out. It takes time, if she isn't trying to kill you be happy and wait it out. If she isn't trying to kill you now then you got a good one just wait out her shyness. Don't pick her up every time she comes out or she won't. Let her roam when she wants and use a soft frosted light in the room to light enough of the cage to see a bit. That's what I've done and it's worked.
