i see you're in Florida, and if price is an issue about snakes check out http://www.scserp.com
. You probly won't want to mail order anything to you, but maybe you are close to their head quarters and they are really cheap. Who payed $100+ for a ball? My dad ordered 10 balls for something like $12 each, and they are all feeding great. They have corns too
Check it out. All the animals i have recieved from them are in great condition. I hear some people diss on big distributors like them, but it's worth a shot.
If you want to handle a snake, get a corn. If you want your snake to never give you heck, get a ball python. That's how i see it, atleast
