I have found that my Candoia will come straight at me as I get close to their enclosure and will bite if get to close to them. Especially if they are hungry. However, I do have a australis that is agressive all the time. However, without fail, if I go into the cage with a snake hook and move her off of her target (my hand) I can hook her, pull her out and she will not bite. In fact, she is quite sweet.

If I just stick my hand in the cage, she triangulates like a laser onto my hand and goes for it.

You might try using a hook to handle her and try getting her used to handling.
