:I am new to these snakes. I raised some red tailed boas in the past and loved them. I was thinking of getting a smaller snake now. One that is impressive in size, yet not as bulky as the boa. I would also like to use the snake in presentations with children. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
The Bulls and Pines can grow to be impressive beasts. All of the Pits can have an attitude (that's what a lot of Pit keepers like about them). On the other hand I've seen monster Bulls that where lap snakes. It depends on the individual animal (that's another trait people like in them, they can seem to have individual personalities). If your looking for a large impressive colubrid for display around children I'd recommend a Eastern Indigo. They are a bit of a pain to acquire (not legal everywhere), but for a display animal I'd put them at the top of the list. Every Eastern Indigo I've seen was like a basset hound. Of coarse if you have a bunch of kids you want to scare the pants off. Whip out a big ol Bull with a attitude.IMHO
