A good idea, this thread - but I wouldn't personally recommend a royal or a hognose as a complete beginners snake, even if they are properly researched, however, I would say that once you have a small amount of experince a royal would be fine as a second snake.
Hognoses to my mind should be kept by those that have spent time judging a snakes movements and intents etc because of the venom.

Excellent thread :)

Having a little Spotted of my own I definitely agree with the analyses of them :)

I think this should be made a Sticky, might help stopping the seemingly constant "what snake should I get first" "What's the best beginner snake?" threads. Dunno if you're gonna
do anything on Carpets?

Ah yes, I do love this genus! And they're getting quite readily available as CB recently (well, more readily available, every shop I go to seems to have them).

Great suggestion!: victory:
