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!
Roxanne
