    Most of mine only get handled once every weekend for cage cleaning.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    Since when is it mandatory to handle my snake at least evey other day???



    Like once a week usually. Just to get her out to eat. Besides that probably less then once a week. I had her out today though. I have her on a tight feeding schedule though so shes digesting alot.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I try to hold atleast a few times a week, if I can't do that maybe because she hasn't digested yet or something, I will put my hand in the tank on her, and I will pet her sort of, and she will slither up my hand and try to come out anyways lol.

    EDIT:
    Some of you that put everyday, i'm sure you don't hold your snake everyday, meaning the day after it eats? If so then you really shouldn't.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    ^ good point. and yeah, when ever I hold my snake and try to put her back in her tank she always trys climbing up my arm to get out and its like impossible to get her to go in because i dont take the lid fully off so its hard to get my other hand in there and hold the lid up at the same time...

    i usually hold him for about 10 to 15 minutes and no i don't hold him 2 or 3 days after he eats and i also don't hold him when he sheds cause he gets a little nippy (there was no option for most days except digestion days)

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I handle my female at least a couple times a day; usually for about 20 minutes each time. Just letting her crawl over me, burrow, and hide, unrestrained. I'll probably slow down once she gets older, but since she's still a juvenile, it's good to let them get used to your smell and being handled early.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    Some snakes I handle each day, others I handle a few times a week, and some I barely handle but somehow they are still nice and sweet snakes.
