Congrats on your new snake, royals are awsome. You heard right, leave for 48 hours after feeding before you handle.

A good tip if you have not long had it is to not handle at all until he has eaten about 3-4 meals with you. Just to establish him and let him settle properly.

I personally dont handle a day before feeding either which is why i just got another one so i can handle him on the days i cant handle the other one

Well once he has settled and had a few more feeds with me i will handle him
