I got a snake (Ball Python)! I want tips Answered

Picture of


I just got a Ball Python. I got him on Saturday, August 14. I decided to name him monster. He is a very very calm (probably scared) snake. Considering snakes are somewhat new to my family, I want tips on how to care, and train my new snake. I have uploaded pictures.

Get a separate feeding area for the tank- doesn't have to be covered. Doing this help the snake associate that when people stick their hands into the cage, it's not food, don't bite. Also, wash your hands before handling the snake, because they can smell a great deal better than humans and find many things to be edible that we might have handled.
