And while they are easy to keep, I wouldn't say they make good pets. They're no ball python. I was fortunate enough to get a CBB baby who was already feeding on rodents. While mine hasn't really been outwardly aggressive, I don't handle it much due to its small size (don't wanna stress it out too much) and good bite for its size ( its only 11 grams and about 8 inches long, but still draws blood). If you can find the right viper boa (CBB, eating rodents) they are easy and cool little snakes (they only get 2-3 feet long, unlike bloods, which can get up to 7 feet long and weigh 30= pounds). It all depends on you. Do LOTS of research and make an informed decision.
