    Well they're not aboreal, as far as I know. But they can climb I guess. Why don't you just do a google search of rosy boas and childrens pythons. It'll explain what they are, what kind of habitat they need, etc. Are you going to get one of those instead?

    That's a good idea. There's quite a few good starter snakes. It just depends on what you like in a snake, what you can handle.

    Children's will probably explore whatever you put in their enclosure. But they probably won't "perch" like arboreal or semi-arboreal snakes.

    begginer

    hi i was thinking of getting a corn snake i was wondering wat would be the best for a begginer in a price range of around $200

    Whoa lol $200?? You could get a VERY nice corn colour morph for that much. Normal corns can start from around $25! Of course my corn cost $150 soooo :roll: Corn snakes are great beginner snakes though, as well as king snakes, milk snakes, children's pythons, sand boa/rosy boas.
     
  8. Unless of course the $200 includes all of the supplies. Then it might not be enough. My sister and I spent about $200 each for the entire set-up. Tank, UTH, etc. but if you were to buy offline it would probably be cheaper.

    But if you are willing to pay up to $200 for the snake alone, you can pretty much get any begginner snake oyu want.

    Uhm...I don't know about that. Why not just stick with something you know for sure is going to be good? Like what I suggested....
     
  12. I've looked into getting a carpet python when I move out. The only problem I see is that they can be nippy. Not exactly what I would look for in a snake. They also get to be fairly big and I would say a begginner snake would be something that is easy to handle like a corn.
