 My first blood python Damien

Hello everyone, recently I got my first blood python, the cutest little guy appropriately named Damien. Now mind you my uncle, grandmother, and my mom’s boyfriend who all own snakes said he wasn’t the best for a beginner snake owner..but what better way to enter into the world of snake owning then to jump in head first?

Damien was a bit of a challenge in the beginning , what with his temper and all, I was nearly bitten several times, but it did not stop me from reaching in there to pick him up, I was just as stubborn as he was. After a few days he calmed down enough to let me reach in without striking, he just hissed a lot. Now several weeks later, I have no problem getting him out, he makes no noise and really has become such a sweetheart.

I’ve heard a lot about their mean streaks and it was quite surprising to everyone in my family how sweet he is, they all expected more fight from him. My uncle says we’ve got ball pythons more aggressive then Damien is.

Before I ramble on and on about my baby I’d like to ask for information on them, the info I got isn’t very clear even though I’ve done a lot of research on them and I was hoping you all could help me out.

A general description of your setup would be a good starting point.
