All are great choices, however I would have to vote for a BRB. These snakes are as close as you can get to having a guaranteed "tame" animal. Much more active while being handled, their temperaments are nowhere near as variable as Hogs or Carpets, and they are super easy to feed as well. Babies can often be started out on f/t, whereas most species need at least one or more live meals under their belt. They may nip as babies but they calm down super fast with regular handling and stay that way, even if you do not continue to handle them regularily. So long as their temps are kept low (75-85) and their humidity high (80%+), these snakes make wonderful, hardy captives
