:They are very gorgeous snakes and yes they do keep you on your toes.ATB's if they haveny been used to being handled can/will get very defensive.They have rather large teeth for such a slender snake and can pack a punch in their bite.If you decide to get one,then get a baby,they tolerate handling a little better than the adults.Adults (at least mine anyway) tend to be squirmy and get defensive too easily especially if not handled on a regular basis.Oh and i wouldnt recommend gloves no matter what anyone says,If by chance your ATB does bite you with gloves on then there is a greater chance of it losing teeth and getting a mouth infection.Other than that they are FUN to work with.If you did take a bite from an ATB it wouldnt be that bad.Just alot of blood and a little scarring,Not like taking a hit from say a 7 ft burm or retic.

I saw these guys a couple of days ago for the first time and I realy think that they are beatiful. The things I worry about though is I have heard that these guys can be bittey and have large teeth. I really dont care about bites from a juvie but I am worried about getting tagged by full grown ATB. I just want to know could I calm one of these guys down? Thanks.
