i agree with judo here...rosies, calkings, corns, hogs...well...atlesat western hogs...and definitely the KENYAN SAND BOA....some great snakes to look into...but i have doubts about u wanting a snake...if u want a snake to show off...*don't get me wrong...im not saying ur conceited or anything*...or something "fierce" to have...a snake is always cool...but its a commitment...and knowing that u actually were asking about snakes eating plant matter...i would want to make sure i know all about the snakes i might get and how to house each and every one of them...snakes live up to 20 years...prepare for an animal that ur gonna be with A LONG TIME...most mice breeders/distributors have parasite free mice garanteed...but i still recommend frozen/thawed mice because of the easy storage options and also they don't pose a threat to the snake...*u'd be surprised what a mouse/rat can do to your snake*....so all im saying is...DO YOUR RESEARCH...i learned the hard way...i was only 11 when i got my first corn...and i failed the corn...it died of burns from my heat rock *due to my stupidity of not reading about them ....and if u haven't gotten the idea...NEVER GET A HEAT ROCK*...and dehydration cuz of my lack of responsibility...and u better be comfy feeding these animals mice cuz most of the "novice/beginner snakes"...are "beginner snakes" becuase they love to eat...and therefore don't die as easily...snakes are definitely not for the faint of heart...unless u find some incredibly docile snake...but one warning...even the docilest of snakes will bite...i had a 4 ft corn that never bit me before...one day i was cleaning out her cage and wanted to move her to the side when spot cleaning...and accidentlly tapped her head...she whipped around and grabbed my wrist and started chewing...corns usually have harmless bites...but some poeple i know have been discouraged from one bite and then "got rid" of their snakes....ive learned from experience...and learn from mine...u want a snake...great...but u gotta take care of it...!!
