    All snakes bite mate. It's just a matter of time. You should buy geckos or something maybe?

    depends on where you live buddy. if you live in vic, womas are on advanced license. Im not sure about other states but im sure you could find it on your individual states schedule.

    it really does depend on how many snakes you intend on getting i think. if i were starting out, and i thought i was only going to get one snake it would be a good display animal as well as a pet. so i would go something like an active snake like a keelback or common tree snake, or the standout colourful ones like a jungle, chondro or an albino anything.

    We all have different ideas of a "good looking" snake how about you decide what's good looking to you and hunt for one in your price range. But yo get you started: Jungles and Antaresias can be purchased at that price as well as womas (if your lucky)
