As with any snake there is always going tobe the possibility. But I have found that most will allow some handleing after the become familiar with the person handling them and do not fear they are going to get eaten. The pics are of a Suriname ETB that came in with the normal attitude but after persistance on my part (and alot of lost skin and blood on my part) she has tamed into an awesome animal. Even my 11 year old daughter whom is scared of the little lizards in our yard biting her will hold this girl without the worry of getting bitten.
