Help me decide my next snake please :)

Ok, I can't put this in a species specific forum, so I thought I'd throw it out here.

I need idea's for my next snake.

My knowledge of snakes is somewhat limited. I currently have a BRB and a cornsnake. Both of which I have researched, bugged the respective forums, etc. about. So I have absolutely no probs researching, just need to know the name to research LOL.

What I would like:

- something calm ( seldom snaps )
- larger bodied than my BRB, thicker and heavier I mean
- not sure on length so we will leave that one out, but I do NOT want any of the extremely large snakes.
- something that max. sized prey would be xtra large rats ( 2 if need be ) because I know I can get those. Not sure on rabbits or other larger prey.
- nice to look at
- moderate level for care/husbandry.

Those are the basics, so let's have some names I can research Thanks everyone. List as many as you want, this is definately not something I am JUMPING into, I want to research it thoroughly before deciding.

A Ball Python fits all of those characteristics and would be new to you. They are insane popular for a reason!

Hog Island boa all the way.

Plus mine is always out and never hides, whereas my ball pythons always are hiding. Dont know if this matters to you or not.

If not a Hog maybe try a Dumerils boa.

Just a couple suggestions

Shoulda put this in my first post too:

yes, it matters if they hide alot. I'd like something a little more visible and less resembling a ball Ball pythons are nice, but, a little too "boring" ( for lack of a better word ) for me.

Ball python or smaller form of boa (Hogg Island or Central American)....male would stay a bit smaller.
