Help choosing a species

Hi there!

So let me start by saying that I've owned snakes in the past - mainly corns, with the odd pueblan milk snake and ball python thrown into the mix as well. I had to sell off my collection a few years back but am coming up to a point where I'll be able to get more soon (I'm allowed max. 2 snakes where I live).. And now comes the problem of choosing which two..

I'm pretty positive that one will be another corn. I love how docile and easy to care for these guys are. For the second one I had originally wanted something with a bit more girth to it - such as a ball python or some sort of boa. The last ball that I owned was a bit iffy with handling though, and it's sort of got me reconsidering getting another. I also worry that a boa might end up being TOO big - especially considering I have a boyfriend who is terrified of snakes. So now I'm considering either a hognose or a Kenyan sand boa for the second as well.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these 4 species? It's definitely going to be either a ball python, boa, Kenyan sand boa or a hognose.. I just don't know enough about any of them (except the ball python) to make an informed decision.

What do you think? Weigh in here!
