I have a Tarahumara Mountain King (knoblocki) and she is very docile now even though she's less than a year old. She's a very pretty red and grey and black...lots of red for your son. A durango would be great too. I just handled one the other day and it was as calm as can be and looked like it actually liked to be held and they have a nice red, black and grey pattern as well.
good luck

:I have asked a few other herpers, but wanted to get as much info from keepers as possible.
:I keep kenyan sand boas; along with a green iguana, a red eared slider and a few others. My kids(5 and 2)love to hold them. But the snakes are not to keen on it. The female will be calm for about 5 minutes then get irritated and try to escape. The male is much less tolerable of them.
:So I am looking for a snake that would not mind being held more often. My son, 5 yrs, has wanted a RED snake ever since he was 3... or really any snake with some red on it. My daugher, 2 the real snake lover... man she wails when I have to put the ksb's away... lol.. and I could really care less what kind of snake we get.
:But as to my question, is their a kingsnake.. with red on it for my son...lol... that doesn't get stressed from frequent handling? (I am also looking into other types of snakes if you have any other suggestions)
:Thanx!
