Best Starter Snake?
now i know there will be some controversy on which is actually the best starter snake, so i shall give some criteria that i am after in the species of snake
I am looking for a snake, that will be some-what easy to care for ( bearing in mind, i have owned snakes before when i lived in the UK )
Also looking for a species of snake that are generally calm tempered ( now i know that this does not apply to the whole species, but i have heard some species have a tenancy to all be a bit feisty )
I am also looking for a snake that i could possibly begin breeding in the near future as a hobby.
Lastly a snake that is fairly common, just meaning that it is not a hassle to get a hold of one, or gather a lot of information on the specific specie.
Thanks for reading and can't wait for the helpful replies

Coastals also fulfill your requirements, and you can get some very nice looking ones.

I vote Stimmy!
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression bredlis are known for being a bit bitey and harder to tame than most other carpet subspp.?

moussaka= i was told by a friend that Bredli's are great placid snakes and he said that a few can be a bit crazy when small but as they get bigger they get more confident. mine is 2 and he is just brilliant he is the best snake and was really easy to tame and i would never regret that choice for a bredli.
A Stimson’s fulfils all your requirements if, only because of the small ultimate size of approximately 1m. Womas, Bredls and Coastal carpets are also a great choice first up if you ultimately don’t mind something a bit bigger. I feel you should be making the choice out of those suggested on the basis of which you personally like the most as an adult snake, particularly given that you are not a total novice.
