However, one thing I would like to be able to do, is take him outside for either change of scenery or taking pictures like it seems like a lot of people on here are able to do. I'm pretty sure if I put him on the ground outside of his enclosure, I may never be able to catch him again. He is extremely fast.
I have a Pueblan Milk Snake. I originally planned on having him as a snake just to watch, but with the way he hid I started daily handling so I can observe him more. He is pretty chill with handling, he just musks on me alot.
