Re: Northern Ring-Necked snake advice

My ringneck experience pretty much looks just like MDT's. I still think they're cool, because they were the first snakes my mom let me keep inside the house. But, they're really just not great pets. I'd call them a "pet hole" like some tarantulas, but with ringnecks, you probably won't even have a hole to look at. It will just be a "pet tank of substrate."

There are so many better snakes for pets. In addition to the corns and kings already suggested, a garter snake might also be something to consider. They can also be fed worms (not ONLY worms) but are much, much more active and visible.
