    I try to hold mine atleast once a day, but sometimes every 2 days. Usually for awhile too, kinda just hang on while im doing things.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I wait three days after they eat, and ideally I handle them every day after that, except they day they feed.
    For every 15-foot python out in the Everglades, there are thousands of species of clams, trees, cats, grasses and birds that are wrecking just as much havoc across the globe. So, for all the headaches the snakes are causing, I at least applaud them for being scary enough to get people's attention.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    Many times a day, generally from 2-4 anywhere from 15-45 minutes, depends on if he gets antsy or nervous. If so, its straight to the tank for some hide therapy, and being left alone for the rest of the day. (except of course feeding days, with two days or so of digestion) Had him for about two and a half weeks now, and I have to say: BPS ARE AWESOME!

    I feed mine in her tank, so I hold her usually everyday (except during digestion). It helps to keep her from striking at me. No strikes so far!

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I voted for "many times a day" but I don't handle my BP for three days after it's fed. After that, I'll handle him many times a day. (Less frequently during shed, when he's grumpy!)

    I think there should be more options. I only hold my snakes once a week or so.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I hold all of mine several times a day, throughout the day. My five Corns all love to be out of their enclosure. As soon as they're out, they are exploring like crazy. My two BPs don't mind being out of their enclosure, but since they are younger, it takes them a few minutes to feel comfortable enough to start to explore. I do not handle them when they are in shed (mostly because that just HAS to be uncomfortable for them) and always wait at least 36 hours after meals before I do anything else with them. From my six year old Snow Corn to my five month old Corn hatchlings, everything is going well. They are all very tame and friendly.
