i would start of with a cornsnake personally, because they are a tad easier to care for, and you will gain valuable experience. then after a while you could expand your colection to a ball.
it's entirely up to you though.

I would say corn snake. Only because Ive "met" one and they are pretty cool....so cool infact that my mother who says "OMG SCORPIONS ARE DISGUSTING" is going to go weekly for two weeks I think to feed the young lads corn snake over the road.........

lol i would say corn to start with aswell, python bites can hurt and bleed like a beetch so get used to snake owning with the corn then get a ball.

mum is feeding a "corn snake" next Thursday. wants me to go with her because its "agressive" and ready to get out the tank.
Said its sand coloured... im not sure if she said "red and sand colour"...the last corn snake we fed for the lad...was doscile and didnt move or do ANYTHING!

are corn snakes sand or red and sand coloured?

I hope its not red, black and sand....king anyone...haha

What's good about corns is you can get morphs for fairly cheap. I'm more of a python man myself, but it is all personal preference. Ball pythons don't get as long but are beefy. I'm my opinion ball pythons are nicer to hold because they aren't as sketchy.

Connie, there's pretty much an endless variety to corn color morphs.

corn definatly, problem with ball or royal pythons is that they can get picky, stop eating for no known reason and have you living on edge for literally months until they eat again.

I keep ratsnakes which are related to corns and they're a lot easier to keep than ball pythons, believe me.

I had a ball python years ago and it went off frozen food and would only eat live. and believe me i tried every trick in the book to get it to eat frozen again. so we fed it live under supervision.
Then she decided that she wasn't hungry.... FOR 9 MONTHS! she wasn't overfed, when we fed her it was a reasonably sized meal for her size, she wasn't overweight. She was lovely and healthy but after 3 months of not eating i started to get worried. It was a great relief after 9 months when she finally started eating again.

So save a royal/ball for when you have more experience, know sickness symptoms, and can relax when it stops eating because you know there's nothing wrong with it. Coz otherwise it will drive you nuts!

Nice color morph! Are you going to give it some substrate? We've got ours on aspen shavings and he loves to hide in them when he isn't chilling on his branch.

"Normal" is still a morph of sorts . . . call it the "original" color morph. Very Happy
