    hi all :) my corn snake is about 3 months old right now. We've had him since he was just a couple weeks old. When we first got him, he was a little aggressive when first coming out of his enclosure. It seems to be getting worse, which is weird to me because he's handled daily. He rears up, rams his head, occasionally strikes, and then takes a few seconds to calm down once he's out. I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to get him to chill out. We have been just putting his food (live pinkie mice) in with him, so I'm thinking we'll have to switch to a good bowl... but I'm not sure if that's the underlying issue or now. Once he's out, he's totally fine.

    Thanks for any insight you can give!
