I've been keeping snakes sense for 11, almost 12 years (Got my first ball python for my tenth birthday) I've been bit by a few snakes so far (Almost all being my falt) A hatchling cornsnake bit me a few times when I moved her from her egg box to a tote, she could'nt break my skin and I honestly did'nt know she was biting me. Was bitten by a 3ft ball python while feeding, she didnt wrap me and it'd didnt hurt that much but it did bleed, I've noticed with all snake bites they bleed alot but do little damage lol. I've been bitten by boas rangeing from a hatchling to a 6ft 15lb female (She bit me twice, think she dont like me lol) I've only ever been bit and wraped by smaller snakes, boas under 3ft and it hurt abit but not to bad, both times the 15lb female bit me she grabed me and pulled back, her bite did'nt even phase me (Once on the hand in feeding error and once on the arm while moving her from cage to cage) I would say that boas make good pets, but can be nippy depending on the breeder and handling. Ball pythons are calm for the most part, but as you said can go off feed for no reason. Corn snake bites dont hurt, even when larger and kings bites are about the same (Was once bite by a yearling king). But boas have always been one of my favorites, if you can get a hogg island or a CA like the other poster said, just make sure you get from a good breeder I've never heard of a mean hogg, but I have never owned one ether (Now Mr Kinky) CA I had one, he was sweet as can be, but so were his parents. I'd go for a boa if you can I have a rosy, hes the tamest snake I've ever had, and the oldest Rosy's are awesome and not useally nippy inless WC. SOrry to blab, just trying to be helpfull
