Hello! I've had a new baby king shipped to me, and for the first time in over a decade I have a scared baby who hasn't been handled a lot. All those years ago I handled that baby often even though he was crazy scared of me because I was told that was the only way for him to "tame down" and be handable. It worked, he was a great pet all his life. Since then I've heard that you shouldn't stress scared babies by handling them so often, and that they will settle down as they grow up a bit. I don't want to stress him, but I want him to be a handable, calm snake when he's older. Which is the right way to ensure that? If it's handling, how often? I've had him a week, during this time I've left him alone except for feeding (he's ate 2 pinkies no problem) and he seems to be getting more confident in his new home. Thanks for any advice.
