I certainly dont think its 'wimpy' to not want to be bitten by snakes. That being said you should not fear any snake by reputation. I have seen plenty of 'friendly' snakes with attitudes and 'vicious' snakes that were calm as could be. The bottom line is if you keep snakes you probably will get bitten sooner or later and you just have to be ok with that. I dont enjoy being bitten but its not that bad and its a small price to pay to enjoy such beautiful animals. If your confident and calm any of your typical pet store variety (kings, corns, ball pythons, boas) should be or become calm and handleable. If they are 'nippy' it is usually when they are young which is very inconsequential. My advice, get whichever snake you like the most and get some experience with it. You will forget your fear of nippy snakes and really enjoy snake keeping.
