Its a BABY BALL PYTHON. Let it bite you. It won't hurt. LOL!!
But you are right, there are usually fairly docile and I've never really had a baby that would strike before recoiling up into a Ball. Weird. I would say bad husbandry. I mean, if its during the day and you can SEE it curled up in the corner sans hide spot? Yeah, not a great setup for a Ball Python, especially a baby.
