we have a decent sized great plains rat snake, given the chance he would probably bite me 10 times in the couple seconds it takes to transfer him to the feeding container.
im afraid that with him, and some of the other nippy snakes, that because my reactions and being careful not to get bit take time i end up stressing the snake. usually the bigger more aggressive snakes dont eat as well and i feel pretty bad about stressing them out.
should i just bear it by reaching in and grabbing him quickly?
