It is an interesting subject.

I've had at least one litter for the past 11 years.

I don't know if I am just incredibly lucky but I have only had one neonate bite me when I initially handled them. It was a flash bite only too, I picked it up and it was nice and calm.

I remove the mother and babies on the day they are born. I place the babies together for a few days then separate them.

Out of all the boas I've bred only one had a bad temperament.
I handle them all and I raise them up as well.

I had one a few years back that was docile and never struck until she was an adult. She was a hypo het for khal. Once she was over 6 feet she was usually calm but she could be completely unpredictable. The first time she tagged me caught me completely by surprise.

My experience is that if you handle them as neonates they grow up nice and calm. I aim to handle them at least one time a week for over 15 minutes. The one that changed on me was never handled as a neonate when I bought it.
