Needing some advice -
So I’m not an inexperienced snake owner - I am new to an incredibly defensive baby ball however. She’s my 4th ball and I’ve never had an experience like this so I’d love some advice.
I’ve watched countless YouTube videos and read many articles - all which kind of lead to my understanding that once you take the defensive snake out, handle it briefly, it starts to loosen up and explore.
Not this baby.
She stiffens up and stays stiff - I could throw her like a boomerang - and she literally never loosens up. She keeps her neck cocked - in the S shape. I have no idea what to do nor how to proceed.
She enjoys tagging and attempting to tag. If I place my hand over her to put her into a ball to help alleviate the stress she never unballs.
Any advice on how to help her get comfortable besides the daily hold which aren’t improving her dislike for me much?
If it helps - she’s a high white pied ball python born 7/10
