But why is it that you say in order for a snake to be the best beginner type of snake, it needs to eat rodents? Personally, I've seen just the opposite in many cases. Lots of newbie snake owners are slightly uncomfortable with the thoughts of having to feed their pet a cute little warm and fuzzy. However, most of them would not mind feeding their snake a few crickets, or even earth worms and such. Most any pet stores that carry reptiles will carry feeder crickets (or the ones around here do, anyway). Crickets and the like are cheaper than rodents. Also, it's very easy for someone during the warmer months to go out in their back yard and find many of the insects their snake would eat, assuming of course that the person's back yard is not treated with insecticides. Anyway, I was just curious why you think it is essential to get a rodent eater in order to get the best first.
