I'm trying to decide what kind of snake to get. I've never had a snake, but I have had several complicated lizards so I'm not new to humidity, heating and all of that so difficulty is not a problem. Here is a list of things that are important to me: -Able to handle often -Doesn't get too big maybe 7-8' tops but doesn't require too big of an enclosure -Not going to break the bank. Budget depends on the snake though.. Lets say less than $400, but less than $200 is better. -Corn snakes are illegal to own here in GA, so they are out. -I don't want a milk snake. I guess that's it. I know I know... ball python... which is probably what I'm going to get, but I would also like some other suggestions. I would rather have something a little less common, and the different morphs don't really interest me enough to spend extra on. I was looking into green tree pythons, but it looks like they are not something you want to handle every day they are so pretty, and I love their enclosures. What kind of rat snakes should I look at? I have plenty of lizards that don't like to be held, so I definitely need something that I can handle.
