Ok, in your experience, what's the best way to wake your snake up, to get them out and handle them? I've noticed that mine gets a little edgy, and things can get really tense between the time that I wake her and actually get her out. Once she's out, she's fine. But that first minute or two after she wakes up, she gets to staring at my hand pretty intensely. Now I tell her, I say, "Liyah, no biting your daddy!" But she's taken a couple short strikes at me (no connection), so obviously she doesn't listen worth a crap! I've tried gently moving some things around her, lightly touching her, and even just standing at the door saying, "Liyah...wake up." Either way, after she wakes, there's a period of time that it feels like things could go either way. Now I know I have an ATB and they are known for being.....unfriendly. That's why I'm trying to work with her while she's still a sweet little baby. So...what do you do? What works in your world? As always, thanks for the input an opinions.
