    Anything I should Know? I have a 4 year old ball so i know the basics, i know they need a little warmer and humid area.

    How long should I leve him alone and can start to handle him?

    and do many people get their bloods tame? a few people have told me they are generally grumpy little guys.

    the gospel around here is 7 days after you move him in. I havent ever really followed this with my snakes and havent had a problem. They are robust enough that if you have any issues you can always give him some time.

    as for tameness, ive heard too they can be snappy. the ones ive dealt with were just fine. i guess my opinion is there are nastier snakes out there that become handleable, so just work with it. routine is whats important
