Do some research and if You want a snake at some point buy one. You don't have the experience for this animal to thrive in your care, and considering it's a wold caught animal you're already starting off on the wrong foot.

Until you know how to PROPERLY care for the animal it's unfair for you to keep it.
Please release the snake.
I fully agree with all of this.
