I had been eye-balling this Albino Burmese Python at the pet shop next to my school for a while, got on the internet and did some reasearch. Found out they got to be 4-6 Ft. long within 6 months, so I changed my mind about that and went on looking for smaller snakes.

So far some of my favorite ones have been...
Mexican Black King Snake (36-50 in. as adult)
Blizzard Corn Snake (30-60 in. as adult)
Aberrant Jalisco Milk Snake (36-42 in. as adult)
Halloween Pueblan Milk Snake (30-36 in. as adult)

And to my understanding all of these snakes are docile and are easy to keep.
I was wondering if these types of snakes would be a good pet, as it will be my first snake. And which of these would probably be the best as a pet.
I dont really know how much they eat.. So if you could tell me that would also help in choosing.
I think that the milk snakes only eat once a weak (Please tell me if im wrong).
I figure that all of these snakes grow pretty slow, and im going to get bit a couple times until I get them used to me.
List of things I will need(I think):
-Aspin Substrate
-A hide big enough for the snake to fit in.
-10G-20L Tank depending on size (With mesh/wire lid that snaps)
-Seperate Tank to feed him in, so that when I reach in he will not think im food.
-1 Frozen pinkies a week depending on snake/size (Frozen so they wont hurt themselves supposably)
-Heating lamp to set on top of the cage
-Water bowl so that he can drink/stay moist

If I left something out please tell me.

Also im wondering what people mean when they say they have 1.0.0 snakes and 0.0.2 and stuff.

thanks for any input!!!
-Nate
