I'm thinking about getting a snake and I want to know what is the best breed to start with. I've worked with lots of snakes so far at work, but I would like to get one of my own and I don't know what breed to get. I've handled Corn Snakes, King Snakes, and Eastern Indigo's all the way up to Pythons. I really enjoy these animals but I would love to know what would be good to start with.
There is no such thing as a "starter snake" - they all have different requirements and needs. It 100% depends what you want, and what you like the look of. If you like pythons and heavy bodied constrictors, it would be foolish to get a Corn Snake, because people say they are good for 'beginners'. There are many snakes in rescues due to this - people are advised to get them as a starter, but they were not really what they were looking for.
Pick the snake you like, research its care, speak to people who keep them and decide if its for you.
My first snake was a Boa - I got it because I like the look of boas...
