Re: My corn snake has made me a wuss. How can I pick him up?

Just grab it gently. Hold it in the cage for a few minutes to let it calm do, be mentally ready for a bite so you don't jerk away. I promise a baby snake bite isn't gonna hurt though it might bleed a little if he gets you in a thin spot on the hand or wrist.

It'll get used to it. As always give a baby snake 48 hours after a feed before handling, once they are bigger most colubrids do fine with only a 24 hour wait as long as you aren't feeding huge items.
