Pueblan are lovely snakes but can be very flighty especially when young and sometimes even nippy. As a milksnake goes they are not the calmest of the bunch, I would say the sinaloan milksnake is a lot more relaxed but if you put in the time any snake will tolerate handling.

Milks, especially as babies, are very flighty as mentioned.
They also have a tendancy to musk - even pooh or pee on you when handling.
Takes a lot of regular, calm handling to get them over this.
Get a housie!
House snakes are awesome.
As easy to keep as a corn, males only get to 2/2.5ft and they are cuuuuuuutte!
Here are my two...

I forgot about house snakes, always seem to get overlooked but they are small and super cute . They are on my list of snakes to own if I ever free up some space.

I quite like house snakes too, I saw some green ones at doncaster show. Do you want a snake that will sit still like a royal python or one thats quite active like a milk?
Also do you want one that comes out in the day or at night? Do you mind if it likes to burrow or do you want one that climbs etc?
Some snakes can be hissy but just bluff some can be unpredictable and might bite now and then and make things exciting for you lol. Others you probably wont even be able to make it bite you. Which ones do you like the look of ie colubrids or boids etc?
Do you want something common or something a bit different?
