hello all, i want to get a snake. it would be my first one. is a corn snake a good "first snake"? i eventually want to work up to owning some cool and colorful snakes, like even a coral snake or copperhead (but i definitely don't want to start with these). and i know there are colorful snakes that aren't "hot" too btw... so would a corn or a king or a hognose/ any of the above be good? and what would be a fairly inexpensive one to start off with?
