Thank you for everyones' advice, I plan to stick to my orginal choice and buy a kingsnake. I am thinking of buying either a Cal. kingsnake or an Eastern kingsnake, depending on what phases are available at the reptile show.
I know the cornsnake is a perfect snake for beginners but they often seem too small in pictures, and the morphs I like are a bit pricy, and I prefer a snake that likes to be handled and coils around the handler's arm.
I have already gathered a lot of information regarding kingsnakes, and know the basics of its care. I still love the pythons though...hopefully I'll only bring home one snake and not two.
