Kenyan Sand boas stay pretty small and are docile. They are also earth toned and are relatively easy to care for.

If you want a flashier boid, then perhaps a brazilian rainbow boa? Looks at Clownfishie's avatar for an example.

Talking I FIgured it out!

I think I've got it...

There are three color variations in corns that I"m looking at. I've always been fond of one straight color. I have been looking at:

HypoBlood Corns, Blizzard Corns and I'd like to know if there's any such thing as a pitch BLACK corn.

The reason I chose thee is from the posts about the corns, and I was browsing pictures and I just fell in love. I'll try uploading the pics in the next post...

This is the Blizzard:

I'm still interested in seeing if there's such thing as a pitch black corn...

Here is a black kingsnake picture I found on applegatereptiles.com:





Also, instead of a blizzard corn, what about a leucistic texas ratsnake? They grow slightly bigger, but have a more aggressive disposition.

Here is a picture from aquacritter.com:

I suggest blood pythons, Sumatran short-tailed pythons and Borneo short-tailed pythons. These all don't get too big, can be very tame, eat great, look great and are not that challenging to take care of!!!

ps. Check my gallery under my avatar for pics of my blood python.

There are no pure black corns yet and even blizzards will often show some yellow residual pattern. The degree to which bloodreds turn red is also quite variable - seems the corn pattern is hard to eliminate. Bloodreds and blizzards are less frequent than other corn varieties in Canada, hence higher prices.

The black ratsnake starts out with saddles but becomes increasingly black with age, although many retain some of the saddle pattern. If you like the reddish look, everglades ratsnakes are relatively common and mature to have just faint traces of pattern with and orangy-red look.

For black snakes, the Mexican black kingsnake is one of the nicest - moderate size (4 ft), great gentle temperment, shiny jet black and great feeders. There are a few threads in recent past on this forum that have lots of pictures. They are a great pet species - and usually not too expensive.

A good site to look at corns is :
http://members.aol.com/guttata319/Hawkherp/morfs.html

It is about color & pattern variations & I believe is by Richard Zuchowski??

I've been researching corns on-line now for months. I finally got 3 about 2 months ago so if you want any other info I found please feel free to contact me. I can suggest breeders , too.
Good luck with your decision!

The above site is actually owned by Shawn Lockert who is using Rich's pictures and those of others by permission. Rich's site is http://www.serpenco.com/ and is one of the most informative sites on corns that there is. He is the guru of corns in the US and if you click on current pricelist there are links to photos and extensive descriptions of all the corn morphs, many of which Rich was responsible for developing. Great site to check out for corn info.

I still say a corn would be great for you, you would love one I also agree with rat snakes they are great snakes and I'm sure one would be great for you. A boa or Python is no fun compared to colbrids they are better well thats my opion anywayz. But you decide what would be best for you and if you want a boa or python suggest a Ball Python or a Blood Python.

African House snakes are easy keepers as are most of the North American Rat snakes (black rats are one of my faves.). If you really want a python, carpet pythons are pretty easy and get some size on them though they don't bulk up like C.A. boas or Blood pythons do. Rainbow boas are nice if you can handle the humidity requirements and don't mind an occasionally nippy snake. I finally got a Mexican Black king and it's relatively calm for a king and eats great. If you don't mind cleaning up a messy cage, black tail cribos are really cool snakes too, very active, friendly and inquisitive. Just some thoughts...
