My new Queensland seems to be far less nervous around me than my girlfriend. I don't know if it is because I handle her much more than my girlfriend does, but she sure seems to know the difference right away.

My CalKing, I believe that she is very used to me. I say this because she has no problem with me taking her out of her tank, but when my brother comes down from Halifax and tries to take her out, she gets these quick jerky movements as if she was scared. She never bites, but I don't think she is as comfortable with anyone else as she is with me or my father who also plays with her sometimes.

My older BP seems to recognize my scent and is calmer in my hands than anyone else's, but I don't believe they really bond with anyone. From what I've heard, they don't even have the part of the brain that handles that sort of emotion (or, at least, it isn't developed)
