No dont handle it, like with most snakes leave them for 2 days to digest, or they could regurgitate and lose their meal.

I agree, also snakes can get into feeding mode and your finger may look like a nice bald little mouse

I tend to leave my RP alone for a couple of days after feeding. I fed her on Sunday afternoon and took her out a few minutes ago for a trip around the house and garden. Always best to leave for a couple of days so they can start digesting etc. Good luck!!

A minimum of 48hours before handling is good advice!
