I feel the same way. I just think there is a limit to it. I like to think that my snakes enjoy being handled and exploring outside of their enclosures. I haven't had a problem with handling my snakes once a week. I think the people that let their snake free roam are crazy and are pushing it a little too far, though. If you snake reacts badly to handling, stop handling so much. It's common sense, really. But anyway, I like to think that my snakes have personalities..even though they are just individual "characteristics" (which, I think, amounts to having a personality). If that makes me a bad keeper, then I'm a damn bad keeper. Oh well!
