i would say that a BRB is not a beginner snake, due to its relative intolerance towards husandry mistakes. i would also avoid a central american boa constrictor, as they are certainly the most agressive of the BC locals. as others have said before, ball python (cept for the fasting), rosy boa (i personally find that they are not very interesting) or any of the antaresia species (my personal suggestion). if u can care for corn snakes, you can care for antaresia, and they are quite docile, and more interesting to watch than the more sedentary species afformentioned. also, i really enjoy working with sand boas, but they are not to everyones taste. as a beginner, try to avoid arboreal species as they tend to be less tolerant of handling and require more complicated care. just my 2 cents.
