Advertisement So I volunteer pretty frequently at this one little tiny sort of rescue center in Carlsbad where they keep animals that people can’t or don’t want to care for anymore such as snakes, lizards and turtles. We get a lot of visitors and birthday people who always want to hold them so I let them hold them in reasonable range such as the ball pythons. Than there’s the king snake he’s been here possibly the longest and almost every single one of the volunteers and staff have been bit except one guy who completely tamed it down but he recently left for a new job. So after he left no one touched it or went near it just fed and cared for it until last week where we got a new volunteer who didn’t know any better and took it out to show a kid and their mom. Eventually before I could tell him it bit him. Thankfully he was a man about it and didn’t hurt the snake and just put it back in the cage. Is there any way I can maybe tame it down instead of having another volunteer getting bitten again? Any tips are appreciated!!!
