Yeah, what Denny said. Snakes need down time to get used to things after being moved into a new home. After that, she'll probably still be aggressive, especially if she's a rescue ((Though I don't know her story, so who knows?)). You just have to be patient and keep handling her. You can use gloves if you feel uncomfortable, but I can promise you that boa bites are the least painful of snake bites lol. They feel like cat scratches. And no, her behaviour won't rub off on your boa. Not unless you completely neglect to hold him, and then it might not still. All snakes are different. I can rarely hold my own anymore and I feel bad for it, but I know the ones that won't mind not being held for a while already and as long as they're still getting fed, they're happy.
