Hi so i am new to having one of these guys but very experienced in the reptile world minus the snake part, this is my first snake and i know alot about them.

so someone was needing to get rid of this 2 year old sand boa and so i said i would take him, he is eating well, pretty plump, they had him in a 10 gal with sand, so when i brought him home (in that tank) i stoped by and got a 25qt bin for him and im planning on having him on the substrate desert snow. when i tried to transfer him in his new place he is kinda faulty, flinching when i reach for him i picked him up lower down on his body and he flipped out and i tried to pick him up higher up and same result.

basically they have been feeding him in the tank, i dont think he has been handled much and my questions are....

1. is the 25 qt tub ok with a heating pad?
2. how bout the desert snow?
3. i want to be able to handle him and provide a good life for him how should i start out introducing him to being handled?

Thanks for working with me guys, any comments are greatly appreciated
