Also you dont ever want to handle a snake behind the head, you'll never get it to calm that way, and may cause it to bite you. Another thing that seems to help with keeping them in captivity is 3 inch deep bedding, something to retreat under is better than just running around on the surface. Oh and live food will likely be taken before dead, and hand movements should be slow, like one inch pr second, this shows you have respect for it. If all this helps and it does eat and calm you should maybe find a mate too, they do better as pairs.
