Hi everyone, first off I'd like to say that I am new here to the forum and have some questions about herps before I actually get one, so bear with me Anyway, back to the main question. I always read in care sheets, husbandry articles and Videos that GTP's aren't for the beginner, is this true? Why or why not? I do consider myself quite knowledgeable on these snakes and I consider myself ready, but it could be COMPLETELY different than what I expected, and I'd like to know from you guys. I have handled snakes before though If not a GTP, which other snake would you recommend for a beginner? I was never a fan of colubrids so corns and kings are out of the question, and balls are too...too terrestrial for my tastes (I am a fan of arboreal lizards and snakes) Which race tends to have the best temperament? Speaking in generalities of course. Also what should I expect to pay for my python/supplies? Would $500 be a reasonable cost of a display cage (built myself), supplies and the snake itself? I expect to pay $300-$350 for the snake. Thanks SO much for everyone's help!
