Best Pet Snakes for Beginners

1. Corn Snake

Corn snakes are a local North American snake that are calm and come in a variety of colors.

2.  California Kingsnake

If you are looking for a more dangerous and exciting snake that is still manageable for beginners, the California Kingsnake is a great option.

3.  Rosy Boa

As the name suggests, the rosy boa is a very pretty snake with an almost pastel color pallet.

4.  Gopher Snake

The pituophis spp, which is more commonly known as the gopher snake, is another relatively uncommon snake.

5.  Ball Python

If you have had reptiles or exotic pets in the past or are an experienced pet owner, you may want to start with a snake that requires a little more attention, without being too overwhelming.
