First off, I agree with John in everything he said. Next, it sounds like you may not as yet have thoroughly researched the choices you have mentioned. I would spend hours of research (internet, books, etc) before making a decision (not saying you weren't going to). A few foot of Argentine "not getting his way" could make for another bad moment. Not a situation you need to have happen in public. A young dumerils being handled "alot" could easily go off feed and even die. A Columbian with a record of feeding well and already being used to handling would be a reasonable choice. I would also want to have had it in my (your) possession for quite longer than a few weeks before taking it out. You need adequate time to learn what the particular snake you have will and will not tolerate. This is critical when taking snakes to the public. This post is menat to be helpful and not to offend. You may message me if you like. Best of luck on your choice. "Chuck"
