Hello everyone, I just need some help with a nagging problem of mine: what reptile (more specifically snake in my head as of late) to get. I am a teenager with a very limited budget and under 1000 total money. I currently make a $20 a month allowance. I am also military so I move every so often (although as I get older and prepare to move out at around 2 or so years minimum time.) I am about to move from Fort Knox, Kentucky to Corpus Christ, Texas. So to the meat of it, I am in somewhat of a dilemma. I want a scaly friend that meets (reasonably for a reptile) these categories: 1. Is at least somewhat friendly and is tame enough for some regular (ish) handling. Especially in the category of me even just chilling with it while I say play video games or even sit somewhere watching TV or playing board games with my family. 2. Is low enough maintenance so that the creature is not a burden, it would be great to have around 15 minutes of average daily care max. 3. Hopefully won't be too boring in its cage during at least some normally waking hours as to not be an eyesore. 4. Cannot cost too much $$ or experience to feed and clean. I do not have the time to always be at its side. 5. A small enough size, so like it does not get in the way. Like probably a 40-gallon tank at an extreme maximum. 6. A lifespan that hopefully is not horribly burdensome. I originally was going to go for a Ball Python, but after reading some conflicting messages on the possible irritatingly high amount of climate control it requires, and how although it is "docile" they do not actually enjoy handling and are just defensive. Although it is not completely off the list for me. I am also considering a Kenyan Sand Boa and a Rosy Boa. I have heard corn snakes are good too, but they seem too...active I guess because I feel as though the majority of the time I would have it out would either be to just see what it does or chill with it. I even considered a chameleon seeing as I got to hold one at a local pet store and it literally came up to the cage and was "asking" to get out. It was cute on my hands and crawled up my head. I am a beginner and have never in my life truly cared for something like this before. I want to know for one: what my expectations should be, too if you think I am right for this, and of course which pet you recommend. General conversation on all this is welcome.
