I have heard so many arguments back & forth on reasons to not feed in an enclosure & reasons it is fine. I got a snake near the end of Aug, had trouble getting it to eat for a month so the petstore guy said feed it in his tank until he is consistently eating then feed him in a rubbermaid container with airholes or something similar. He is an excellent eater now, finally even eating F/K. We are going to be switching to F/T soon. He was very small & the guy referred to him as a baby in July but now he is so big that he is easily eating adult mice.....although he tries to eat them backwards. We have had no issues at all with him/her being aggressive. I always make my daughter wait atleast 2-3 days before handling him after a meal but the snake has never so much as flinched when she reaches in & picks it up. It seems like a very docile snake & everytime my daughter holds it it immediately snugs up against her silicone bracelet she wears,lol. I don't know if it likes the feel of it or if it is just comfortable because it is familiar (she nevers takes it off & it is a wider one) but it is funny how it wraps around it. So anyway, will continuing to feed inside the enclosure become an issue? We also only feed at night after his red light is on & if he is handled it is during the day & usually when he is already out cruising around so he is not disturbed from sleep.
