You may want to consider subocs as well (if you haven't already). I'd never kept any before, but I got a young pair a few months ago. The female is a little on the shy side and doesn't explore as much during the day. The little male is like no snake I've ever kept before though. He came to me as a hatchling and has been bolder and more curious than any young snake I've ever encountered.

He comes out to investigate whenever I'm around and always wants to climb on me whenever the lid is open. I've seen no quick movements or signs of nervousness out of him at all. It's like he came out of the egg perfectly at ease with humans. I can definitely see why this species is so popular with their keepers now.
