I have wanted a pair of BRB's for a long time myself. That would be my choice.

Hi Jenn,

Having 4 of your 5 choices here currently, I'll offer these comments:
-personally, I'd choose the ball or BRB, probably the BRB
-even the 3' tank isn't really a great size for an adult ball, and especially for an adult BRB. I think 4'Lx1.5' W is about the minimum footprint; height is largely irrelevant for both species. So plan to get a bigger tank within a few years if you choose one of these two.
-CB kingsnakes and milksnakes that are handled regularly will generally be relatively calm, and musking isn't too common

When will you be at the Totally Pets Show? We'll have a booth there but I will only be there on Sat. after 3.

Have fun,

Jeff Hathaway

I'll most likely, if all things go as planned, be there Friday and Saturday.

I initially voted for BP since I have one and IJC are not on the list. I would choose a Kenyan though since they are on my next to get list

I LOVE BRBs, and that was going to be my only vote, but then I noticed that you don't already own a bp. If you don't have one, you gotta get one. But Jay's got a point...why not two?

I find bp's boring (again my own opinion). They don't move too much, they're common as dirt and well, I'm a colubrid person.

I say mex black. They get to a decent size, don't musk once they're tamed, not too expensive which leaves you money to get a lot of cool supplies. Plus the really black ones are just stunningly gorgeous, black and irridescent, ooooooo....

I find that not a lot of BRB's live up to my expectations of a RED and shiny snake. Even those tooted as RED, just aren't.

My vote definitely is the Kenyan. Most docile species alive, easy as hell to care for, a species that will actually THRIVE in a well-ventilated open-top aquarium with a UTH, and overall just an incredible species to work with. But, all of your choices there will bring you a lot of joy, I'm sure.

My first choice would be the BRB I have 2.3 of them and they among my top 3 faves for all snakes.I'm not too big on bp's I've seen too many feeding and sheding difficultys with them(I know lots of you will argue that,just my experience)and I tend to worry to much fo that.I had kenyans for a while but didn't find a tank full of sand and a burryed snake to be too cool.
I've also had both of the colubrids my favorite of them was the Black Mexican a clean black one is an awsome looking animal,particularly like the gunmetal color on the belly.
If I have to explain you wouldn't understand.
