at that age the most he would be able to do is graze maybe draw a little tiny bit of blood. but its all part of the challenge. try to go smooth and quick to pick him up (no flinching) hell probable be a little flighty when you get him but this will all pass with regular handling......... enjoy the thrill as in the end you should end up with a big lazy snake that just doesnt care about you touching him :flrt:
great advice on here. Just don't give up, be firm but gentle, and get him.
You may as well get bitten now and get it over with. Especially at this early age.
LIke said above he's still small and can't do much damage. Just try not to instictively pull away when he strikes. This could cause a couple problems. One, it will teach him that striking at your works. With SOME snakes, this can reinforce their striking behaviour. The other concern is that the snakes teeth could snag and get pulled out when you pull away.
Like others said though, just keep working with him, he should calm down eventually :]
If he doesn't, we'll be here to take the next step with you :]
Had similar problem when I first started handling my 5month corn but I was a bit nervous (mostly about the snake hurting itself) but after a couple times it settled down and now seems to enjoy being handled so just keep with and should be fine
You could always try wearing gloves, however it would be better to use your bare hands so he gets used to your scent. He's only tiny, he can't do much damage, just get your hand in there and grab him, otherwise he'll never learn!
