    I handle my two 4 month old ball pythons 3-4 times a week for 15-30 minutes. The head shyness is going away pretty quick as a result.

    I do exactly the same, though mine is turning 1 year now in Dec. She's almost not head shy at all- she doesn't even mind being gently pet on the top of her head, it's so darn cute

    Iím up to 11 now, and I try to ha see one or two a day, so they all get a little exposure.
    IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE! The snakes Iíve had awhile and handled a lot, and the adult snakes I bought that were handled regularly are very easy-going and fearless of me, and like to come out and be handled.
    The snakes I bought from large breeders that do only the minimal handling needed to clean cages, they are shy, fearful and donít like to be handled.
    So because of this, I try to handle them all at least once a week, it would be more if I didnít have 11, but I am in breeding projects, and enjoy having a bunch of snakes.

    Someday far in the future I will probably get down to owning only 2-3 again.

    At least every other day except for the couple days after meal time. She just kinda cruises around all over me and the lovesac when I'm watching tv.
