I have Burms, retics, 1 african rock, and a green 'conda.
The burms are puppies,
the retic is a hyper puppy- she's very active, and ALWAYS thinks you have food- I never put my hand in her cage- either a rat goes in and she's on it before it hits the bottom of the cage- or a hook goes in and she comes out- she's never bitten me-- and i owe that to hook training. The other retics are the same but were nippy as babies.

The afrock is PSYCHOTIC- he doesnt care if youre food or not- he will bite. BUT-- a good friend of mine has 9 afrocks, 7 of them are tame as burms- the others are again- psycho.

The green- nippy at first- about the first 3 months we were using hooks and gloves- now we use the hook just like the rest of the bigger snakes.

I am planning to get another green from Kelly Haller- I believe those are some of the best available on the market- you can buy one super cheap- and kelly's are a bit more- but you get what you pay for- and I am forever hearing FANTASTIC things about Kelly and the snakes. So thats on the top of my shopping list.

As for yellows, there's a small zoo here that has a yellow-- pretty fiesty creature...

If you don't have a caging requirement, and you can house a green- and I saw your post about the burm cage you're building- I think you'd be able to handle a green just fine. If you want soemthing that's a little smaller- go yellow. The temperment is going to depend a lot on how often you handle the snake. But- its good to have a 'head start' by purchasing a quality animal from the beginning, which is why I recommend Kelly Haller for greens. I don't know who has good yellows- but someone here will.

Good luck- and let us know if you get one.
