Actually no not yet anyways. He is protective of his enclosure. Will rattle his tail and if my hand still in his tank will strike at my hand. But, if I put my hand on other side of his small half log hide and let him climb on it and pick the hide up with my hand that’s by it and take my other hand and grab him he’s fine then. He reminds me a lot of my Cali king when I got her now I can just reach in and grab her with no issue. So I’m hoping the same thing goes with this little guy as he gets older and gets use to handling. Just like when I feed him I have to let him climb out on his own into my hand and he’s fine if I try reaching in to take him out of feeding bin he’ll strike at me and rattle tail like crazy. He hasn’t opened his mouth like I seen their suppose to do before striking.
