Well Joshua, I have a few milks that have become accustomed to being fed when I pop the lid of the cage and will absolutely grab my hand.
Most likely, the snake has become conditioned and is an eager feeder so "explores" the possibilities. Stimulus and response.
We do a similar version of that behavior in front of the grapes at the grocery store.
Let's assume your hands don't have mouse scent but the snake is simply excited.
