Handling Your Pet Snake

Handling Your Pet Snake

Some snakes enjoy handling and react to your touch positively. Others shouldn’t be handled unless it is absolutely necessary. Do your research to understand what your snake’s needs are. Choose your snake wisely based on your knowledge and experience. Never adopt a snake from the wild since they haven’t been handled and may lash out at you. Captive-bred snakes make better pets. If you are going to handle your snake, do so with respect. Act efficiently and with confidence when handling your snake. Learn how to pick up your snake and support him well throughout the entire process. Ensure your snake knows there is no food at stake in this interaction so he doesn’t inadvertently bite you. And watch for signs of aggression, which could also lead to injuring you. When done handling your snake, wash your hands thoroughly. For more information, contact your veterinarian Oshawa, ON.
