He is right not to handle it right after eating actually. Just keep handling it every day outside of the two right after you feed. Also, How old is your snake? Two adult mice is not nearly as healthy as feeding one small rat- which any boa constrictor over a year old, unless its growth was stunted from malnutrition, should be eating at least small if not medium rats. It could just be your snake is hungry and thinks you are food. Try a small rat. (Or rather, a rat that is about as big around or just slightly larger than your snake is around) Hold after it digests like you are doing now. It is either hungry or nervous and doesnt recognize your scent as part of its environment yet. My two nipped me a couple times and juveniles, but now that they are full grown, are easy to handle ( well, they dont bite- there is still a LOT of snake there to carry) If you cant handle handling them now, when you have a 40 lb 8 foot long snake youre gonna be in trouble- so just do it. Get leather gloves if you need to. If she still remains unhandleable it could just be her personality and sadly, you might consider rehoming her to someone with experience. (Hope that is NOT the way it goes for you)

Boa Lova

When I first bought Petunia 4 or 5 years ago she was 14 foot. I kept her in the bathroom and no cage.At 14 foot this Retic was not to friendly.i would visit her 5 or 6 times a day.I would hold her down with a stick by the neck and pet her.After doing this ever day for a few months she got friendly.I also talked to her when I did this.Finally I would take baths and showers when she was in the bathroom,but whenever I took a bubble bath she would crawl in with me.She was to big to take to bed so we would sit on the couch and watch T.V.with her.I took her into Hollywood and would let others hold and pet her.I cant do this anymore cause she is 21 foot and cant find anyone that would help me take her into Hollywood.What I am trying to say is that if you treat her or him like your own child they might become pet friendly.
