I voted for the stroppy snake. I've owned a snake for 1.5 weeks, so I'm definitely a new owner. I have 2 reasons for my vote. Firstly my hubby is scared of snakes (he grew up where wild snakes kill people). He's only just ok with the nice quiet baby I've got, he'd never cope with a bad tempered one. Secondly, there's loads of advice about non feeders, plus any problems like that & I could either exchange my snake or send it back to the breeder for a few weeks until they were feeding ok.
Maybe my vote is affected by my buying from a highly experienced local breeder who is keen to help, when I bought my snake they reminded me that they will give a refund or exchange if I had any problems, & they want me to bring the snake back in a few weeks for a check-up & to check if the next size up mouse is needed.
