Ive been thinking for a long time now about getting a snake for a pet. My parents always taught me to be afraid of snakes growing up, (copper heads are all over Virginia, and they are HIGHLY venemous) but now that Im living on my own, the idea of a pet snake is really starting to grow on me.
Has anyone here had a pet snake? If so what kind do best with handeling?
I was thinking about maybe getting a ball python, because Ive heard that they like to be held, and will wrap themselves around your hand and be perfectly content. Does anyone know if thats true, or what other snakes are good for first time owners?
Ive heard corn snakes are good pets for first time owners too, but they dont like to be held..which is something I really want in my snake.
