IMO there is no good starter venomous snake... as all can do serious damage or kill




If i had to go with somthing, maybe a Copperhead, or V Ammo.

there is no right answer really mate, find a mentor and get a grasp of handling some different snakes, my first venomous snake was a Vipera ammodytes

Get a nasty normal snake and treat it like a hot. And find a trainer.

I've had a puff adder and a green bush viper for about 9 hours, not dead or disfigured yet so they can't be as bad starters!

As others have said before me, there are no "trainer" hots, only real ones, all of which will do you damage. For my 2p worth, I'd go for a Trimeresurus trigonocephalus, although they are hard to get and expensive, they are reasonably docile and their venom is not that strong, but they are bloody quick if/when they do strike!

Buy a WC rat snake and play with that a while, if that doesn't put you off, decide what you want to keep, find someone who keeps them then beg/plead for mentoring off them
