I have been housing a juvenile pair of carpets together. The female is an F1 from wild caught adult Irian Jayas. She is very high strung but has a nice reduced pattern and high degree of pale greenish yellow and im dying to breed her. My concern is that her skittish nature might hinder my plans. So I cohabitate her with a one year old male diamond coastal in an attempt to socialize her. Ive handled her (name is Viola) daily since she was four days old because even at this young age her problem as well as her beauty was evident. The other night i took out her cage mate but not her. She seemed aware of what was going on, flew into a frenzy and rammed her head between the tank wall and lid, which is usually weighted down, escaping from her cage. It really looked like she was jealous that i had taken him out and not her. It was almost funny except for the fact she scrached her nose and tore off a scale in the process. Ive been keeping reptiles all my life and Ive never seen and animal so desperate for attention. Let alone seek attention! just crazy, thought id share.
