Hey everyone, So, I got my first snake at the expo over the weekend, I've been doing heaps of reading, heaps of research and have planned how the first week or two should go, but keep reading contradictory pieces of advice so was hoping to hear the recommendations of people who have far more experience than i do! She's about 3 months old, first ate on xmas day, first shed on xmas day and has been eating and shedding since then. And she's a diamond python... So, she is home and in her new click clack, has done a bunch of exploring/ exercise and has spent a bunch of time sitting under her heat emitter, she also spends time in the hides down the cool end of her tank. So We're pretty sure she is happy with the temperature, but are keeping an eye on the gauges and all that stuff. So, what we are trying to figure out is how long we let her settle in before handling her? The info we've read ranges from 48 hours to 2 weeks and we're really not sure, because we've also read that handling her is important so she get used to us handling her. Also, we got a feeding history, but the last 2 feeds aren't dated, which we didn't realise until after we left. So we're thinking that it was probably a couple of days prior to us buying her that she was last fed. How long do we wait until we feed her? Do we handle her first and then feed, or go strait to the feed, then wait the couple of days for digestion and then handle?? And do we wait 2 full days after the feed before handling her?? We're both VERY keen to handle her, but are also conscious of leaving her to settle before we handle too much. We've heard we should build up from 1 minute today, 2 minutes tomorrow, 5 the next day etc. to get her used to us handling her. Any help and/ or advice will be very greatly received!! Thanks.
