just last week i bought a female banded cali king. i mainly took her because she was a great feeder (she's big for her age - 6 months). she handled at first absolutely perfectly. then the other day when i lifted off her house, she started tail shaking and tried to strike several times so i left her to cool off for a bit before replacing her house (i didnt want to squash her) and i also added a cardboard toilet roll in the cool section of her tank to give her somewhere to hide when she was too hot, i replaced the lid and as i turned round i heard a noise, i turned back around and she was striking at the toilet roll (albeit at the hole) and her tail was shaking again, i've only once since took the house off her to see if she was ok and again, with the tail shaking and striking. i fed her yesterday and she took it no problem.

basically i'm looking for a little bit of advice. i dont want to pick her up anyway if she is stressed (i'm not worried about getting bit.....she's too small to do any damage lol) but at the same time i dont want to leave her too long as i want her used to being handled. any advice would be greatly appreciated, you can reply on here or to my email gill_welch@hotmail.com

thanks
