Hi guys, Hoping someone might have some handy tips or something i might have over looked when dealing with a pretty defensive little one. My super zeb isnt really calming down much at all and i know its prob just a time and size thing but perhaps there is something im not doing right also. I have tried using a hook and that is ok to get him out and just going in for the grab. Either way results in the same response. I understand being bitten is part of having snakes and im not really worried about that but i feel he isnt getting used to being touched very well. He is kind of ok while on my hand and likes to try and get at my face but if i touch him with my thumb of other hand he almost leaps off me every time. Is it simply a time thing or is there something i could be doing to make it better? He is in a tub at the moment so any time i go in he will be defensive and i understand why. I try to only handle twice a week as to not over handle him and stress him out. I feel things are not going anywhere and im frustrated by having this beautiful animal and being back to stage one each time i try and handle him. Is there something i could be doing better?
