    No - being rough is not a good idea at all, but definitely, I let mine know that biting isn't going to get them out of anything. Any snake of mine that bites without a good reason gets handled a little more that session, or later that day. I do not want to reinforce any kind of idea that biting will accomplish goals for them, such as me leaving them alone.

    That said, I do not hold one of my snakes 'accountable' if they should bite me during a veterinary procedure. (My Indo boa bit me while having worms surgically removed sans anesthetics - and I totally don't blame her for that one.)
