I agree with Brian's comments. The bottom line is that a snake will only be as docile and trustworthy as the time that the owner invests in his animal(s). Most burms stay tame regardless of how much or how little you handle them. But, to have one that you can feel confident about takes a lot of time that most people are not willing to commit. I have seen wonderfully tame green anacondas and even african rock pythons but they are certainly not as trustworthy as a burm. Retics are somewhere in between....they can be wonderfully docile but when they are out of their cage, they are always on the move so managing them becomes a bit more problematic (particularly if your cage is in cramped quarters....which it should NEVER be when keeping large constrictors).

:what is the biggest type/breed of snake u can get besides the anacondas i heard they are pretty mean

:thanx much
