First I would like to thank you for some great advice. I told him to start feeding her twice a week and not in her tank. Although I am no stranger to snakes, ( I've had many boas and pythons) I am a stranger to indigos. I don't think it's a feeding response, I think it's more defensive. She doesn't come at you until you go to her with the hook. That's when all hell breaks loose. If you just go in the tank, she will hiss and thump her tail and go back in a strike position and try to get away. She has plenty of light and there is traffic in front of her tank. Feeding time she is crazy. She goes for the rats with much enthusiasm (for lack of a better word).
Second I would like to tell you that your snake is beautiful.
