Corn snakes, King Snakes,Rosy Boas, are all great starting snakes. I wanted to let you know that before I bought my corn snake i kept hearing about how nice and docile they are and that may be the case with most of them however I think i have the meanest damn Corn Snake alive it always bites and craps on me when ever I pick it up so choose carefully. A Western hognose snake is pretty easy to care for as long as you don't get paranoid when it all of a sudden goes off of it's regular eating habit and won't eat nothing is wrong it's normal. However maybe a little bit of experience would be helpfull. Rosy Boas are very easy to care for as long as the humidity is kept very,very,very low. Hope this helps, Big Scott
We may have snakes sticks but you still can't compare that to the craziness of a Homeless person!!
