Jeff--another question(and yes, you can send me the bill LOL)...50 which is the sulcata that is about 3.5 years old, well i noticed that he tries to ram my foot..if i'm back there sitting with him (and he's been around people his whole life and handled), he will walk up to my foot or leg and take a few quick steps and bump him shell up again my foot and tuck in..than do it again and push as hard as he can at the same time. I'm assuming this is his ramming behavior.

So i'm not sure how to respond to that. I simply pushed back on his shell as to ram him back a little..i certainly didn't push him over or throw him lol i just pushed back as to tell him "No you can't do that"...

Is he trying to establish dominance? Pecking order? Alpha? I'm thinking in terms of dog behavior here LOL
