royal pythons r best starter snake my brother has two and they never bite and easy to care for. but when my corns were little they bite my all the time it dosent hurt but its annoying and other corn used to even bite the glass of his cage. woma pythons r the best of all snake to have but they r mega expensive.

Royal pythons are very sweet, I agree. However I do have to disagree about the disposition of corns. I hatched out my first set of corn snake eggs last summer. Of 7 eggs, 2 did not hatch, one was born with a birth defect, and I got 4 baby corns. Two of them have to this day never even attempted a strike, much less bitten me, or any of my friends, or the children who have handled them. One of them I did nickname Bitey Mc Biterson, and that one was very nippy, but its teeth could not go through my skin, and with work began to calm down and bite much less, though was still really defensive. The 4th one bit me once as a neonate when I moved too quickly to pick it up, and more often tried to wriggle away at first.

I say, if at all possible handle the snake you are thinking of getting. Find the individual that you feel a connection with and work with it.

Spotted Pythons are awesome, you get two varieties.
The kitten tame like ones and the spawned from hell ones.
My pair are 18 months old and of the kitten tame variety.
They do have awesome feeding responses though.

Some pics of when they were about 6 months old.
