With my adult female false water cobra I use a hook to pull her back end out then go ahead and grab her. She loves to hook around stuff in her cage when I really need to get her out or grab substrate with her tail to dump on the floor . I do feel like they recognize routine and I think the hook lessens the chance of a bite. She has never struck defensively but the feeding response is insane and violent, I wouldn't want to take a bite.
I was looking at those false water cobras. Like I'm sure many have I wondered if there was a nonvenomous cobra. I kind of like the things that look like they should be venomous for some reason. Not to make everyone think I have venomous snakes . More I think they just look so natural and interesting. Maybe from all those times I practically tripped over bullsnakes to have them "rattle" and went flying backward taking any dogs or nearby humans with me until we determined what it was.
