I fed the royal that I rescued from someone up and since I fed him yesterday he seems quite agitated. I opened the viv and his head keeps going back as if to strike.
It's been about 30 hours since I fed him so should I wait another day before I start handling him again???

Any help would be appreciated

agree with 48 hours, also what type of viv do you have? does it open at the top or from the front, reps hate being approached from above.
Was it handled before you got it,it might just not be used to being handled.

Well if its a rescue and you havn't had it long its probbaly still nervous... also as Baz said snake don't like things from above thats how they get prayed apon.

Also with reguards to handleing after feeding 24 hrs is generally enough time but again this is a royal which are problematic at times anyhow and if its a rescue youy havn't had long i'd give it the full 48hrs
