in my experience snakes bite from being too hot (makes them grumpy), being hungry, or being scared. so make sure his temps are great, make sure he's eating appropriate meals, make sure he has a hide, and try only holding him in your hands very gently for about 10 min once a week.

that should do it, but sometimes a particular snake will be nippy and there isn't much you can do about it.

If the bites scare you, just wear gloves for a few months until you determine if this behavior can be worked out of him.

If after 3-4 months things don't get better, start looking for another snake owner that doesnt mind a nippy snake.
