I rescued a ground snake a few months back and I am pleased to announce that he is doing great! He has shed a couple of times now and as far as I know, is eating the ants put in with him. My question is, why does Rumplesnakeskin freak out when my fiance tries to handle him, but chills out with me? I've tried multiple times to pass him to my fiance but once I walk away he starts slithering all over the place. However if I collect him or just pick him up in general he weaves between my fingers and rests his head on a knuckle until I put him down. I know snakes aren't the brightest creature, and am just curious about the behavior.
