I think they do. My boy Jerry never approaches me, though he eyes me plenty, and this is because I go out into the yard all of the time. Sometimes, I go to the mulberry bushes where he likes to spend summer days and sit there with him. So, my presence doesn't automatically garner a feeding response. However, whenver my father goes outside, he generally has food in his hand. Jerry recognizes my father as the spoiler, so even if I'm sitting at his side, he will immediately turn and run toward my father, realizing full well that he is the one who will drop a zuchini on seeing him. Whenever I have company over, Jerry generally behaves indifferently, occasionally retreating to a hide where he won't be disturbed. My other sulcatas behave in much the same way, so I think they do recognize different people. Perhaps they acknowledge a difference in smell, as I can't imagine they can tell one human from another based on their movement oriented eyesight. Who knows?

T.G.
