The first snake I owned was a mangrove which was a hatchling then. She was a sweetheart and never once acted aggressive to me or my kids.
Having said this, I've come across those that were aggressive and those that were almost puppy dog tame, even adult WC. So the point is that they are all individualistic in responses and it depends on your luck as to what sort of temperament the mangrove you purchase will be.
On the whole, if you do not have any experience with snakes or you love handling them, it'd be a good idea to get something else first. I was fortunate in that I had a mentor coupled with getting a docile snake.
Either way, I firmly believe that a snake must be handled frequently to get it used to human interaction and reduce its "meanness" factor.
:u have no experience with snakes not a flame to u but u really dont sound ready to keep one maybe start out with something easier also depending on where u live u will need a permit
