Does anyone have any advice for how to get my 7 year old Ball Python Chester more used to me handling him? I got him late the night before last. He bit me yesterday before I was able to feed him, I fed him a small rat, and I was gonna give him a few more days (say Monday) to digest before I tried to handle him again. My friend I got him from said he is a complete sweetheart and its unlike him to bite, he was probably just really hungry. :/ I don't have any problems with my corn but ball pythons are a new thing for me.
