Default what does yor snake do during handling?

just wondering what your snakes do when handling? I've had my royal for about 3 weeks and he seems to like being handled, sometimes I hold him in hands, sometimes he goes around my neck, he goes under wife's jumper (hehe) and now whilst writing this he is laying on my lap, not curled in a ball but just lying there and now and then has a look around. just would like to know what the general opinion is they like chilling or more slithering?

My royal never stops moving, he'll go on forever lol. My boa curls up somewhere and watches me usually and moves every now and then to a new spot after a while.

My royal will either wrap herself around my wrist and just stay still or will have a little explore, she's very docile and slow though so we let her go on the carpet as well - my corn is really quick though and won't keep still, he likes sleeves as well... and hair... and anything else which will make it difficult for him to be extracted from

Montana just chills on my stomach while i continue my love affair of Castle or Bones and Pandora is a roamer, if she settles she's usually up a sleeve, in my hair or resting by my ear, needless to say she comes out when the OH has sport (if its not NFL i pay no attention whats so ever) or some other rubbish i have no interest in watching on the telly

Most of my carpets move constantly. If I was more sentimental I would say this is because they enjoy the experience and the exercise. In reality they are just trying to get away! My little jungle zebra however just goes tense and bites me then try's to jump for it!
