Ya, you don't want to get a snake just to see it eat something. Or just because you think it would look cool.
I did, I got a Ball Python believeing I could keep him in a little 10 gal aquarium all her life. No one told me anything about snakes at all. They have special heating requirements and some have special humidy (sp?) requirements. They aren't cheap to keep. Buying a 3-6 dollar rat every week can become very expensive. And seeing as how most people get addicted to Herps then buying 3-4, $3-$6 dollar rats a week can get VERY expensive!
By the way how old are you? Because Herp Vets are especially not cheap! And for some of the larger snakes (3-5 ft) neither is their caging.
