Sorry to disappoint you guys, I had two veiled chameleons a few years back, but had to say goodbye to them when I moved. I wanted to get a snake but that creeps me out to hold it.

Maybe it's cause I'm not used to handling snakes.

Unforgiven.... How do you get over the freaked out stage.... I held a mole snake and it freaked me out cause it felt like it was falling down the whole time

Well I just kept holding them. I also felt like I was gonna drop them and was worried I would get bitten constantly. Eventually you calm down enough to see the snake is actually a great thing to handle and sometimes also quite scared.

You eventually get used to it

Welcome - nice avatar!

IMO your best bet would be a corn snake.
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.

I would rather go for a ball python as they are slower moving and it wont be as scary.They are more expensive and bigger.

Good luck!

Welcome. Was also going to suggest a Ball Python. In my opinion they are more docile than corns. My corn is well over a year old but I am too scared to go near that thing. It's extremely fast and is out for my Blood :P My Ball Python is a million times more docile and are a treat to hold. I was holding mine today and I had a sudden burst of energy and happiness, something that I haven't had in a while.

Just watch out, their teeth are sharper than you'd expect :D
