Re: Snappy Woma

Possible cause #1 : Sometimes it's easy to get into a routine when a snake is growing and you accidentally gradually underfeed to the point of feeding aggression. This seems most likely to me given Woma's reputation for strong feeding responses.

Possible solution to #1 : Double check your snake's size and the recommended food size for it.

Possible cause #2: Your snake is naturally just that dang ornery, either due to a lack of it being tame (not a common reputation among Woma from what I understand) or it could be that the snake is feeling unsecure.

Solution to #2: Regular gentle handling is a solution to dealing with an aggressive, non-venomous snake. Adding hides, covering 3/4 of the sides of the terrarium glass is a way to increase security.
