This takes some trust and knowledge of your animal. Even tame snakes can be very aggressive and heavy handed (quick to bite without thought or warning) during feeding time. It is not a good idea to get this up close and personal with any eating animal, especially one you don't know well (ie. don't try this). My boy, Xepher, here has been nothing but a good boy for me. No making sounds at me or slithering away or striking at me while photographing, and I can grab him right out of his feeding tub with no food aggression.

Yeah, even though I've gotten a food response bite from him. Learned how far I need to keep the warming rodent away from him lets just say that. Like the rest of them he's a good boy all in all. Not really head shy so I don't have to watch where I'm grabbing him if I let him slither down my back. He gives me kissies like Muse and Yakul is learning this trick too.
