I would say a rosy boa or a sand boa are good choices,but if it was me I would probably get a corn snake they are good beginner snakes they eat well and are good tempered,and cheap you can get one for probably $15.As for the kingsnakes they are good to but they get a little bit bigger but they generally are good eaters and freindly snakes and milksnakes would not be your best choice for a beginner.They are a little tricky sometimes when it comes to eating and one minute there fine and the next he might be bitting your hand,I love milsnakes I think they are beautiful snakes I have 2 a eastern milk and a New Mexican milk.I hope this helps.And good luck with your new snake no matter which one you choose I am sure you will be happy.
