Hi all! I've had my 7 month old male panther for three months now, and I've been working on getting him more familiar with me. For awhile I was only pulling him out twice a week to bask in the sun, and he seemed sort of okay with that. An acquaintance of mine, who used to breed panthers, noted that he is still a bit jumpy and that I should get him more comfortable outside the cage: let him sit up high out in the open, offer food, etc. This has worked well for a little while - I've been attaching a branch to the table and offering him food. This week, though, he's been exceptionally moody and seems nervous of me. Right now, I put him on a tall room divider in my office with me, with other pets locked out. He seems to be climbing around happily. I'm wondering if anyone has any taming advice? I know getting him used to this will be better in the long run (for both of us!) and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. What have other people done? Ambrose right now - he's not too happy with me. BRIGHT! Other notes: I recently upgraded his cage from a 17"x17"x30" Reptarium to a 24"x24"x48" aluminum cage, which he's VERY happy in. I could tell he was starting to feel cornered in his smaller cage as his body is almost 5" long now. Pulling him out of the cage is also nerve-wracking because he tries to get away from me and I don't want to use force.
