Ya im aware things with mouths have the potential to bite, im just worried about the pain factor, to be completely honest.

Id rather not get HURT by a snake because im afraid i might get shocked and jerk my hand back, injuring the snake in the process.

At lesat with smaller animals, their bites dont hurt. Ive been bit by numerous anoles/house geckos and i never jerk away because they dont hurt.

Is there a reason you suggest ADULT snakes over young ones? Is it because they are less likely to be flighty? I thought young was a better option because it is easier to acclimate them to handling.
