So you fed her during the day before this past weekend? How many times have you tried to handle her since the weekend to conclude this is a problem? Its only Tuesday so it seems a bit early to be concerned.

I suggest returning to your typical night time feeding schedule and just give her some time. Chondros are no different than any other snakes. They can learn to tolerate handling, but that doesn't mean they like it. Try not to get into the habit of handling her too much. This can lead to stress, which can increase her susceptibility to illness.

Personally, I feel this is one species that does better when appreciated from a distance.
