avoid handling when he is in pre-shedding time. he is nervous and blind then. avoid handling when he is hungry. Your finger is his prey. avoid handling when the temps is cold. He is in bad mood. avoid handling when he is hissing. He is in bad mood. avoid handling when the temps is too hot. He is in bad mood. avoid approching your hand slowly to him. Your hand is monster size to him and he thinks it's an enemy. Touch him quickly

If temps are too hot/cold it doesn't mean a bite is any more/less likely IMO. If the animal is cold then it's less likely to want to do anything at all. Some snakes (e.g burmese pythons) hiss while in the viv but are fine once out, you can't ignore them because of this.

Also i disagree with the last bit too. All I'll say is be deliberate in your actions don't mince about.

But you need to get bitten to know why you don't want to get bitten. The best snake to learn why not to get bitten is an Anaconda.
