A black king snake! very pretty. I was looking at that as well, but my heart is pretty set on a corn snake as my first. Maybe for my second snake...
Depending on the type of snake you bring home, a larger enclosure may stress them out. Make sure to include lots of hides and crawl spaces for them, in case they happen to be one of those species that doesn't thrive in large spaces (i.e. ball pythons).
2.5 BCIs, 1.1 BCAs, 1.1 tiger retics, 0.1 Burm, 0.1 Woma, 0.1 Colombian rainbow boa

But if anyone asks, I only have 1. The rest just showed up for the house party.
