    Hey all
    i am new to snake keeping but am already hooked and so fascinated by them.
    currently have a stimsons python that is just over a year old but am already thinking about another addition.
    I would love to hear people opinion on what the bet snake to keep is?
    I would like something that will handle well and will be active and like to climb all the time!
    I will be building my own enclosure based on the snake i choose so would live some ideas of size of enclosure for the snake suggested!
    what are your thoughts?
    Cheers

    Bredli suits your criteria - they do get big and are nocturnal so most of their activity is in the darker hours

    Wait a bit longer to make sure the addiction is a long one. :)

    Coastals make great pets. They're big and like to climb and are usually pretty calm.

    Doesn't really fit the climbing bit but I always recon a woma. Some do love to climb though(including my girl) and they're really good with handling, my baby one will even let my three year old neice hold it. Just be careful after feeding :p image.jpg

    Any carpet Python would be suitable, they make awesome pets. Albino darwins are awesome!

    I'm in the same boat. I've had The Noodle (Bredli) for a bit over a year.
    We're just about to embark on building her a custom enclosure and once that is done I was looking into getting another, probably an albino Darwin, I can't believe how cheap they are!
    But for now it looks like I might be getting my mum a Stimson's (because I don't entirely trust her with anything bigger...)
