blood pythons get very thick, though..so they ARE a big snake. They can get up to 50 -some odd pounds. They get as thick as a burmese python. They are not for everyone, especially someone who doesn't want a big snake.

I say go for an IJ carpet python or a hogg island boa. I personally am thinking of getting a hogg island boa. - they are beautiful

I would also vote for the Hogs (since you already have the obvious choice of ball pythons). I don' t know if they are "out there", but they are not common.

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 I belive he already owns a IJ Bloods are cool snakes and borneo short tails are even smaller and just as cool

But what you buy is really up to you just run a couple 100 searches on google you will find what you want in time

i'm in love with ball pythons. the best thing to do though is make a list of these suggestions and go to a breeder or a reputable pet store and look at/handle them. DON'T BUY. Then go home, and research the ones you liked. (with the exception of maybe the rattlesnake )

From what I've heard, Hogg islands can sometimes get above 6 feet. You might try a Sonoran Desert (Mexican) BCI, Crawl Cay (expensive, but smaller) or Cay Caulker Boa. Ben Siegel Reptiles has some Cay Caulkers for sale right now I think. I've got a few Sonorans, but they aren't ready to go yet.

All 3 get about 5' and I've never seen one get above 6'.

Rev and Enso - Since when do Indigos only reach 5-6 feet? Indigos are the largest colubrid on earth, reaching sizes of 9-10 feet.

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.

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".
