Default starting fresh

hi everybody my name is charlie cook and i am 15 years old. Ihave previously owned reptiles such as bearded dragons, royal python and corn snakes. I lost my mother a few years back to mennjitus so we had to get rid of them. I am hoping to get another royal python but I dont know if i should. could somebody please put together a list of snakes ranging from 1-6ft that would be a good snake to have. thanks.

p.s. what is bump?

Seing as youve already owned corns and a royal, it might be good to try something new!
You could go for the tiny hognose (correct me if im wrong but 2-3 ft) or the darwf boas (6-7ft?) or the others suggested.

Hey Charlie so sad about your mum dude

I'm hoping to get my first snake some time soon and I am looking at getting an Irian Jaya Carpet python they dont seem to get much bigger than 6ft and they look awesome!

Good luck with your search dude and I hope you find something you like

Jon

i second the hognose
great little personalities and no worry of it out growing you :P
or maybe a smaller species of boa would be nice (id personaly say a boa or a royal as i think they have a better "snake shape" than corns if that makes sense)
