    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I feed my snake every 5 days because its still a youngin that needs to grow.

    But I hold him as much as possible without making him feel too stressed out.

    Lets say this week I was feeding him on Wednesday. I would hold him today once or twice, tomarow once or twice, Monday once or twice, tuesday probably once or twice, then on Wednesday I wouldn't hold him at all, and I would feed him around 12 Noon. Then the next time I would hold him is on Friday at Noon (48 hours later).

    This schedule seams to work perfect for my snake. I think it enjoys the time it gets to just relax in its tank but it dosn't show any signs of being pissed or stressed out if I take him out either. Very mellow.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I have 2 and handle them curently 2 times per day and sometimes 3. They are out for about 15min - 1/2 hour each time. They get held and handled for a little while and then get some floor time. However I think my corn is about to shed so I am trying to leave him alone until I know for sure. I am still learning a lot.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I hold some daily... some every couple days... some once a week...
    i favor handling some more than others, and force myself to hold some more than usual just because they are more aggressive than most.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I only have my 1 female. She gets held 2-3 times a day except for when she is in the blue and 36-48 hours after feeding. If I had more snakes I'm sure it would be less. Looking forward toward spreading out the handlings.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I only have one female who's about 1 1/2 years old. I handle her every day or so (although not for 40-48 hrs after feeding and I feed her once a week). This seems to work well for her. She seems to enjoy being handled and does not stress. She is remarkably calm and accepting. Thank heavens 'cause I'm new at this, lol...

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    There was no option up there for me.

    Usually my snakes get held 1-2x a week, sometimes less.

    Re: how often do you hold your snakes?

    I handle mine 1-3 times a day depending on how busy I am. He really likes to stretch out along my shoulders while I am typing or following up on emails.
