Please don't get that Mangrove! They aren't a handling type snake no matter what the pet store tells you. When we kept one years ago, it was so defensive that it would strike at the sides of the cage anytime someone went near. Not a happy snake though it had been captive for 5 years or so. It actually broke the glass laid on the top of the cage to maintain humidity trying to strike the person feeding it. There are so many other snakes out there to choose from if you want a "pet" that have much simpler husbandry and won't injure you if you make a mistake (everyone does at some point).
