Congratulations, you have a normal young kingsnake.

If you persist with handling - especially as you say he settles down after being gotten out - he will eventually learn one of two things:

1. You're not going to eat him, so he doesn't need to musk/etc you.
2. Musking/etc doesn't stop you from handling him so it's a waste of effort.
