...you know the animal's name before you even see it, and the second you see it you know exactly which piece of furniture will be rearranged to fit it in. haha My boyfriend and I talked and he is going to adopt an "aggressive" anerythristic baby that is up for adoption for free. I have all of the set up already, and my bf has wanted a snake fora long time. We are both very excited! He is VERY flighty and defensive and strikes a lot. Our plan is to cover the tank really well and we have several hides. He will be in a quite room too with no handling for the first week of course. What are your suggestions for handling to reduce fear and "aggression?" I think it is mostly the stress of being in a pet store setting but we will see if he mellows out when he gets home. Any suggestions?
