    Hey all, This my first post in these forums. I'm just wondering if it's possible to over handle a reptile? I have a leopard gecko and I get him out alot everyday (morning and night time). Is this bad for the reptile? He seems happy to let me handle him and hangout with him, he doesn't struggle...

    Do you own mildly venomous snakes? Do you free handle them daily? Why did you get one? Do you believe in snake "rumors"? (These are nippy, these are docile yadadada...) If so why? Personally I fell in love with this fellas striking colors and pattern...

    Ok, I know that you can't assign emotion to snakes, but for want of a better word, how do you tell if my corns and king are happy while out being handled? Is climbing all over you good, or are they searching for somewhere to hide? They quite often tie themselves in knots around our hands and...
