Hi everyone, this is my first post here so please forgive me for sounding like a twit Ive had my spotted caesar for just over a year now, he is around a year and 5 months old. i was very uneducated when i first bought him but since then have come along way. When i first got him he was like any other hatching and was just very defensive, so me thinking that this behavior was just this individual snake i stopped trying to handle him and just faced the fact that i was going to own a devils reincarnation in an enclosure in my room. its now been a couple of months since i grew up and started handling him, at first i was using gardening cloves just to build my confidence but id like to scrap those, i tried to handle him without and he squeezed my hand as if i was food and went very tense. is there any way to stop this? eg- getting bitten?? or am i destined to use gloves from now on ? thanks guys!!
