The thing with getting bit is that you have to understand that anythign with a mouth can bite lol. I am a firm believer that snakes are not out to bite and cause alarm to people for fun, but rather if they are stressed, scared, or in feeding mode, all of which are basic animal and human nature.
Personally, I have never been bitten by any pet snake I have ever had, neonate to adult. Funny enough, I keep only Lampropeltis/kingsnakes and milksnakes, which are often deemed as the more skittish and nippy of the pet snakes lol! However, herping and picking up wild snakes can be a whole different story!

It is good that you know that your gecko bit you not cuz it was his intention, but rather due to your own error. Nothing is worse then people blaming the animal.

Since it is going to be a beginner snake, you may want to try your hand at an adult rosy boa, if you wanted to go with something a bit smaller. If you can afford the extra foot or so, maybe go with the popular corn snake. All are noted to be excellent beginner snakes and are quite fascinating in their own ways.

Beware, you will get hooked on snakes
