I dunno, I know certain snakes don't like to be handled, some tolerate it and some seem to enjoy it. Whether they enjoy it the same way as we would enjoy snuggling with a loved one or they enjoy it like we would enjoy sitting in the sun is a different matter, the fact is they want to be handled. A friend of mine used to have a wild snake come up to her when she was sitting on her steps and slither into her lap. She would pet it until she was ready to get up or the snake wanted to go and it would come back the next day. You can't tell me the snake didn't enjoy handling, not when it was exhibiting behaviour like this. Now I will admit, occurances such as this are rare, snakes are usually wise enough to avoid us. Who knows, maybe it was a lover from another life.
