    It's called learning the hard way S. Usually it's a matter of when, not if...

    I adopted a bredli that was about 1.8m. About 8months ago.Hes now over 2M and heres the really good part he hates people and me in particular.I received him via a ballot as he was handed in by friends of his previous owner.
    At first he was a strikin snappin slitherin psycho.
    I have to wrangle him out for outdoor time in the sun.I think he may have worked that out as hes calmed down a lot since I have had him.That said I keep a safe distance exclusion zone around my face when handling him.
    The big question is did the previous owners husbandry techniques leave this snake emotionally scarred? I know nothing of his previous life.

    My Stimson's crawl over my head and give me a wet willy, they like to get inside my glasses and love to crawl all over my Computer. They never bite me, and are very happy whilst they are out. They get fed in their Enclosures and I never handle them after feeding for a day or so, when I say goodnight to them, they come over to the glass to see me. I probably wouldn't do it with a bigger Snake but they are still very friendly if you treat them nicely. I love them like any other pet

    I must add that I have had them since they were little shoe strings that were snapp litte snakes, when they go tused to the fact that I am no threat, they stopped biting.
