In my experience, my animals mellow out as they approach close to adult size which varies a lot on invidual animals for me but around 2-4 years. They get comfortable with home and confident in thier defensive ability about then for me n usually shed the Napoleonic drama some. In a way they are like people. Very individual n not ever totally predictable. Some my animals are always mean, some seasonally mean, some docile n some usually docile but provoked sometimes by my dogs or birds!lol

Personally I would never trust a Gila or Beaded not to bite me. I've notice although apparently more aggressive Beadeds bluff more n calm down to situations faster for me. When my Gilas do
get mad they mean it. Several times I've had animals charge my hands n make very deliberate attempts to bite me. My biggest male beadeds have given me reality checks a few times now n strike me closed mouth with a recognizable force on my forarms as I've cleaned them. Not certain if they know the gloves don't go that high or if its coincidence but they rarely even try in bite my gloves.
