I know this has been here for a while, but I have not been on here for a while.

I have 2 Bredli Pythons, about 4 years old. They both have a HUGE feeding response, but are handle-able. If I reach for my female (between 8-9 feet long) she will strike, and if I touch her while she is in her cage she will hiss. If I let her come to me, or stand there and move slow so she knows isn't about feeding, she is just fine. She will come to me. Once I have her, she is fine to hold, and as curious as any snake I have ever owned. The male is a little little less aggressive, but similar. Once he is in my hands he is great, wanting to explore everything. I can pick them up much easier during the day when they are basking than I can at night, when they are hunting.

Good luck with it. Some will never feel comfortable, and others will adapt. Sometimes it's about your own body language - things you never thought of (like each arm looking like individual predators, or reaching from above where predators come from vice below which is not as threatening).

Jeff
