Question Non-aggressive biting?

My fiance was holding our 6 year old corn in her lap and he attempted to bite her thigh. He was not aggressive (ie. he didn't lunge or snap or anything of that sort) but he did repeat the action multiple times (presumably realizing her thigh was too big each time?) but it still seems weird that he would do this at all. He was about one week ago (we usually feed him once every two weeks) and he's never bitten either of use before. Has anyone seen this behavior before in their corn(s)?

Sure! He must have smelled something he liked. Mine typically nose-butt me and then try to eat whatever he/she has shown interest in. Some of my snakes will scoop up the mouse, some will strike and dramatically wrap. The hungrier they are the more aggressive they are....mostly.
