I am sure it is possible. I have been in the ATB world for a short time but a snake keeper for over 13 years.

My female I got is very calm in a sence. I can get in the cage to clean a part of it or mist her and she will not strike at me at all. I can hook her and move her around with ease. her attitude changes if I touch her but it is not that bad. She will strike at me a few times but then settle down. Now I would not hold her like I do my Bloods or Balls but she is quite calm for an ATB.

No for my male he is alittle different. He will strike and strike until you leave the front of his care. I can hook him but I do not handle him like I do my female yet.

But I have only handled each twice so I still have to learn their personalities. But I am almost sure if you work long enough with a baby you could calm them down nicely. Patients is the key.
