They can be, it depends on the owner. I'd love one and while I have a fair few years experience and have cared for one at college, I'm really small and light, so I don't feel comfortable putting the other people in my house in a position where they may or may not need to help me if I ever get bitten or take my eye off the ball. I am considering dwarfs though, so that may also be something you'd be interested in? On top of the other things I tend to have my snakes in as large an enclosure as possible, I'm already beginning to get a bit uncomfortable having my CB12 royals in 3ft vivs, and I know theres a large possibility they will spend their adult lives in 5-6ft ones.....to feel comfortable owning a bcc i'd have to buy a new house so new owners need to look at the type of housing that is available and what they are comfortable using
