:If a snake isn't used to being touched I've found they 'freak out' less if you use a towel or gloves to restrain them. Might make you a little less nervous too! Good luck.


it's much harder to control the snake. They can slither right out of gloves and towels.

Here's what's worked for me........put the snake in a pillow case and gently grab behind the head leaving the snakes body in the bag. This will usually make it easier to uncoil the snake from your arm, as they will try to release your hand. These cases are almost always a two person job. Some will fight you and some will not. Good luck.
