You can handle her sooner, just don't do it too much too soon. Wait at least 24 hours and limit your time handling her a little bit for the first few days. If you stress her out too much, it'll cause regurgitation and that's never fun.

And on the subject of regurgitation, if she does happen to ever do it, don't feed her for four weeks afterward! You can potentially kill her :O I know first hand ... I accidentally killed a snake at the pet store I used to work at that way. It regurged so I fed it again the next week and poof, his stomach blew up and he died x.x Not fun! And I felt bad.

Do post pictures of her! Rainbows are so beautiful, especially Brazilians .... And I'm a big boa person, if you couldn't tell *points to siggy*
