Anyway once he settle in and is eating good i hope he calms down for you.
yea man i have wanted a green ever since i first seen one when i was a child so i doubt il ever let him go. My yellow on tho other hand is a wee darling. She bit me the first time i picked her up before bringing her home and hasnt bit me since. I tap train her to an extent. She is usually burrowed in her bark so if im taking her out i urn a wee piece of wood to stroke the bark off her and then use it to keep the pointy end away while i lift her up. Once shes in my hand she is happy and will sit there as long as i let her. I made the mistake once of putting her in a tub while i cleaned her viv out but she came out like a lunatic trying to bite me so now if i hav to do maintenance i lift her out let her coil up on one hand and do what i have to do. Can walk about doin whatever and she will quite happily sit there. Thats why i was kinda taken aback by the green as they are ment to be the calm ones lol.sorry about the spelling and 1 big paragraph im on my phone and its making life hard lol.

Re: new conda and bite pic

Like yours mine's fine once out as long as he wrap around my arm. The only thing mine does that i don't like is he gets up in my face. I just don't trust him when he does. Knock on wood he hasn't even try to strike or bite in 5 months. Learning to read his mood has made it a lot less stressful when handling on him and me.

Re: new conda and bite pic

yea man mine likes to go up round the face and im always on edge but been all good so far. If im just sitting chillin i sometimes sit with the hood on my jumpers up and she likes to climb up in and sit on my head using the hood as a wee cave lol. I think she must feel the warmth of my head, i does make me a bit nervous but shes always been good. But like you say once you get to know their wee ways and personality it makes it a bit easier to know what they are going to do and you can be a bit more relaxed.

Re: new conda and bite pic

had my 1st real handling session with the green tonight, its the 1st time i have went anywhere near him in over a week and i cant believe the difference in the wee guy. Lifted him straight outa the viv with no hassles whatsoever. He slithered about on me for a bit then coiled up round my hand and sat there for around 15 mins nice as you like. Soo happy like, things are looking good for him taming down. Even managed to snap a few pics while he was out and my yellow shed today so i will snap some of her tomorrow and get them uploaded on Monday when i get back on the pc in work!

Re: new conda and bite pic

yea man i was all psyced up to get the hand chewed off me and he was completely fine. No striking or flailing of any sort. I was able to let him go through my hands pick him up and move him where i wanted him with no issues at all, hope this is the start of things to come.

Re: new conda and bite pic

Got my finger cross for you that he stays this way. Just don't let your guard down around him. I found some Anacondas spook real easy like Blood Pythons do.

Thanks man yea i think we should be ok if today is anything to go by but yea it will be a long time before i trust this guy like. The fact they dont show any signs of striking before they to keeps ya on edge but things are definitely lookin promising.

Congrats on the success with him calming down... I couldn't imagine dealing with a green "Annie" that's in a bad mood

Thats awesome! Thats really the to key having a tame snake... Handle them frequently when they are little so that way when they get bigger, they're as docile as can be.

Thanks man, yea it is definitely an experience working with a green that doesnt want to be worked with but a week on his own and time to realise he has a new home has made a world of difference.
