Angry Black Mexican king

Postby JJward7 » Wed Sep 10, 2014 8:32 am

Good day all
So i recently got a adult female Black Mexican king snake that is one angry little B!tch.
so my question is how do i calm her down? are there any techniques that someone with more experience can tell me that i can give it a try.
Thanks in advance
Every good story seems to begin with a snake.

King snakes can be quite grumpy, the fact that it's an adult might make things a little more difficult.
I would just recommend regular handling.
Often with kings it's just getting them out of the enclosure that proves to be tricky, if you take it out with a hook stick and then put it in your hands they seem to tolerate the handling just fine. Avoid fast movements or 'surprising' the snake.
The way to success has no shortcuts.
