Do as much research on them as you can and go from there, see which one best suits your requirements and abilities

While bloods are fat snakes they are not long and no where near as dangerous as a large female burm All bloods you will buy will be able to be handled by you alone bloods get fat but not as fat as female burms and if you opt for a male they are shorter and dont have the same kind of girth as females They arent big snakes just fat ones
Kristina was right on the money. Although they may not have length (though a 7' blood isn't unheard of), these are not snakes to be taken for granted. They are fast, incredibly powerful animals and can easily be considered a large constrictor, and can be awkward to handle. Some of the bloods I've seen do match the girth of adult burms as well. If you don't want a large constrictor, a blood is not a good choice.

Kenyan Sand Boas are a bit under 5 feet along with rosy boas.
They are *much* smaller than 5'. Kenyans are usually 1.5'-3', while rosy boas are 2'-3' on average. Below pictured is my adult female rosy. She last measured at approximately 23".
