Very moody female veiled


New Member
I’ve had my female veiled Cham since August 2018, she’s very recently turned really aggressive, she used to love coming out as soon as my arm was in her viv she was straight on it climbing onto my head etc. Now as soon as I put my hand in to feed her she starts hissing and going for me. Nothing in her viv has changed all temps etc perfect she’s eating drinking no sunken eyes. Was just wondering if anyone had an idea as to what could be causing her to Turn the way she has. ( I’ve never forced her out always let her come to me) and a laying bin has been set up for her (she hasn’t laid any eggs) thanks :)
