All of my Pueblans ( for that matter all of my milk snakes except Sinaloans) are wild when you first pick them up. After about 5 minutes of handling most will calm down a bit. The Sinaloans and Nelsoni seem comparatively docile most of the time. I have one juvenile female Hondo that doesn't calm down at all, she will bite repeatedly. She seems to be pretty sure that she's doing serious damage, removing fingers and such, because she will just keep biting and flailing as long as you try to hold her. I try not to handle her because I don't want her to break teeth off or injure her mouth. It doesn't really matter to me if they are wild because they are not really pets anyway, they are breeding stock.

:I have a lovely CB female apricot pueblan…she will be a year in May. I bought her when she was about 2 mts old. She was rather calm then, musking when picked up. When she aged a bit she started biting…repeatly. That stopped at about 6 mts. Now she does not bite, but she still musks and at times throws a fit squirming and spinning. She has gotten better…but will she ever stop the musking and fits? I handle her about 3 days a week unless she is in shed (which makes her even more nervous).

:Thanks!
