The best snake is whichever snake you like the best. For me right now, it's bull snakes: Impressive size (for a colubrid). Really neat attitude. Beautiful color and pattern. great feeding response. Strong and active during handling.

Ask me next week, and I might say something different. Some of my other favorites: gaboon viper, bredl's python, green tree python. None of which I'm likely to ever own.

Yeah there is no "best snake" It's the snake you personally like the most.

That is a very generalized question and virtually impossible to answer. What exactly are you asking? What is the best snake to keep? Or what is your favorite/best looking snake?

If your talking about housing a snake, it depends on your own requirements and how experienced you are. A gaboon would definately be a terrible idea, or a burmese. Well...anything that goes beyond 7 feet or poisonous shouldn't be considered "the best snake". UNLESS you have the experience, then it's a whole different story.

For a starter, Corn Snakes would be my pick. They are cheap, incredibly tolerable, easy to handle, easy to maintain and super colorful. If that was the question you were asking, i hope i helped.

If that was not the question, my favorite/best looking snake in my opinion would be GTP's, Eyelash vipers and Black Blood Pythons. I think that those are the most beautiful snakes in the planet.

That's in the eye of the beholder. LOL

My very favorite snake for looks would have to be an ETB (basins), hands down.
