Socializing Your Snakes

Socializing Your Snakes

I always started out handling my baby snakes at an early age once they are well established eating and I can see their curiosity growing to watch everything going on around them and when they start pacing and wanting to come out I take them out for short handling sessions so they can learn to trust you and they realize in time that they are safe being close to you and doing this on a regular basis a couple of days a week you will eventually notice that they display a LOT of interest in wanting to come out of their enclosures to explore their environment around them outside of their enclosures and the exercise and exposure is good for them because the more active they are the better eaters they are and they grow into strong healthy snakes.
My one rule is if I see any of my snakes displaying signs of stress then I put them back into their enclosures so they will feel secure 🙂 When snakes are active that doesn’t mean they are stressed out being acvtive is how snakes act out in the wild so there is no reason to assume that active snakes means stressed out snakes because there is a VERY distinct difference between the two meanings. Snakes will seldom learn to trust you if they spend all of their time locked inside of their enclosure 🙁
I made this video to announce the four names that I’ve selected for my 4 new male baby Ball Pythons. They are Pastave genetics, Pastel genetics and Mojave genetics and are adorable little babies.
Song Title: Species from the Youtube Audio Library
I want to thank everyone for all the amazing name suggestions I really do appreciate it and don’t fret if I didn’t select the names you liked because Tawny (My big female Corn Snake) has 22 gorgeous big fat healthy eggs in the incubator that will need names when they hatch 🙂
You cannot TAME a snake because humans don’t have the capacity to deprive snakes of their natural instincts but snakes can be socialized through handling !! Don’t be afraid to talk to your snakes even though they may not always understand what you are saying they recognize your voice :o) They also relate to your heartbeat, your pulse and your scent and they recognize your touch!!
