As far as temperment and care they are great snakes. My only concern is size, you have to realize that this won't be an easy snake to maintain. Every time you want to clean out the enclosure or handle it you'll likely need to get over 2 or 3 buddies to keep it under control, or just get it off the ground. They cost a fortune to feed as well. Most people feed rabbits which aren't cheap, unless you breed your own, but that is a ton more work than it sounds like. They grow supprisingly fast and it'll be eating rabbits in no time.

They are noted for their generally good disposition but keep in mind that if it gets to 16 feet and has a sudden change of heart it could cost a couple dozon stitches.

Mine was just a little sweetheart though. But I traded her for some ball pythons, they really are a better pet snake.
