Can't decide on new snake
 
I was all ready to get a new snake this week I was going to get a royal, my second snake after my corn . But my friend has just got one and now I want something different . But I don't know what I would like it to be mire challenging than a corn , but go in my viv that's 36x15x15. Been researching loads and all I find are tropical snakes that need high humidity not good in a wooden viv. I would like something a bit fatter than a corn . Please throw some types of snake at me to look up
Thanks

Does it matter that your friend has a royal too?

If you want something chunkier than a corn, but not too big, then what about a western hognose?
They are more challenging than corns and royals (speaking from personal experience) as they often come with a bit of an attitude. Mine is an absolute madame, hisses at everything :lol2:

Some of the Asian Rat's can be kept with a humid hide. Don't have to have crazy humidity.

I would say it's a good idea to go ahead and get the same as your friend. Means you can have conversations about the species you share and exchange husbandry advice

Have a look at boas maybe? I have 2 now and both are docile as anything, easy to handle me easy to care for :)

Taiwanese beauty snakes are larger but can be a handful if you get a bad tempered one. Beautiful snake though but do research a bit before getting one if you have only kept corns.
