Thanks, you have been very helpful. I had all but forgotten about mangrove snakes. I have kept and bread venomous snakes in the past so I have hooks, tongs and experience using them. I was considering an eyelash viper but my girlfriend is uncomfortable with the idea so I decided a constrictor would be best. I will look into the mangrove as I have heard they are hearty captives. I prefer to have a captive bread animal as well. The red tail green rat snake has peaked my interest and if I decide to get more into herp keeping as I once was I may take on the challenge but for now I want something a bit more simple. The rough green snake while seemingly easy to keep is reported to defecate in their water bowels regularly. With me being out of town for 4 days or more at times I don't want to leave them without proper drinking water. That's the big kicker, I need an animal that will be ok with being left alone for 4-5 days.
