::how many days should i wait before handling my baby GTP after feeding?

:I would have to say, handling babies is a bad idea. These tiny snakes are too delicate and can have serious irrepearable damage done to the spine. Usually this damage is unnoticed until the animal reaches adulthood. I have one 2 year old from my first clutch with a slight(and I do mean slight) kink in the tail. I never even handled them until they were a year old. If you are worried about keeping your chondro tame and accustomed to being handled, don't worry. They usually begin to calm down at about a year or so. Those that are flighty and defensive will usually remain so forever, no matter how much they are worked with. Good luck.
