What are the best pet snakes for beginners?

Pet snakes are not social animals. They don't like being handled and will bite you if you touch them. They have specific humidity, temperature, and heating requirements and a preference for wild animals. Generally speaking, these needs can be very challenging to meet. However, if you can't resist owning these amazing animals, there are several species that are docile, easy to care for, and inexpensive to keep. When choosing a beginner snake, determine the size that you can manage, the amount of interaction you want with your pet, and the diet and environmental needs that you can meet.
