Now, i understand a fair amount of JCP young are nippy under a year old, and, in my personal experience, i have found that to be true. I just got mine a week ago, and started handling them yesterday. My female is very "skiddish" and would rather move away from me than bite (in fact hasnt really ever bitten) and the male will ONLY bite, thats all he does. Pure defense mode, gloves are needed for this one, only because i prefer to not bleed. So here is my question, how often should i handle them? I have heard many opinions on how i should go about getting a "tame" JCP. One was, you have to feed them once every 5-7 days as young or they will bite, and once every 7-10 days as adults, which i find kinda silly, but, i do feed every 5-7 days, as, thats how i have always fed all my snakes. The other thing i have heard is "handle them, but, not too often, and often enough" but, how often is often enough? and how much is too often (stressing them out too much). The best suggestion i have heard so far is "about 5 minutes a day." I also understand that they tend to "tame" themselves or calm down and become less defensive over time anyways (around the 1 year mark they get better). So, any opinions, thoughts? its kinda hard to listen to everyone, lol.
