Re: White Lipped Python

Unlikely that would affect his disposition, though I did hear of a ball python that had a bad case of mouth rot many years ago when I was in college. He was taken in by the school as a rescue, and along with the antibiotic shots they force fed him for some time. I don't know how his temperament was prior to that, but they kept him in a large glass fronted display case type enclosure, and he would strike the glass quite hard whenever he saw anyone in a white lab coat.
Back in those days BP's were almost always WC imports, and considering the condition that one was in I can't imagine he'd had a good experienced with people in general before he was taken care of.
