Re: Need Help With Snake's Reaction to Being Pet

That is completely normal behavior, your snake is just not used to being touched. Especially when they are asleep and feel safe, they will react threatened. I don't recommend you pet ball pythons inside their enclosure until they are really comfortable with you. Continue to handle your pet regularly everyday (besides feeding days), and this behavior should decrease.

Hope this helps!
