a royal python would be the best snake for a young child to handle in my opinion

would like a python someday but thought i'd start with something small as it's my first snake. The kids held a corn in a shop yesterday and they were fine with it. Ok, so they a pretty quick movers now as they're small, they should slow down a little when they're older and larger.

Held both of them today for a while and they were both fine.

picture of the corn as she came out of her hidey hole.


I will replace the naff thermometer as i know they give crap readings. Also i know the temp is a little on the low side but this is just after bringing the viv in from the car after half an hour drive. I'm warming it up slowly.

I had leos but found them a bit boring. I now have a royal and am getting a boa. the royal is great, nice and docile, don't get huge, easy to look after. but nice one on the other snakes

Pic of the common garter, bit smaller than the corn even though it's a year older.
