Thanks for the info I've already picked up from the website and forum. I am picking up my first 2 ball pythons tomorrow so there'll be pictures to follow too. I have a passion for bearded dragons as well.
Must go and finish enclosure. Thanks again.

Hello
I have been reading this forum for months and finally decided to register. I plan on picking up my first snake in a few weeks after we finished moving. After 6 months of researching I have decided to get a corn snake for several reasons. I do have a question though. Are there personality differences between male and female? Which would be better? I do not plan to breed. I only want a pet.

For example, I used to have ferrets and I know that males have a tendency to be more laid back, easier to handle and lazier then the females who are generally very hyperactive and "moody" :P I have had both though. Are there differences with snakes? If so, what gender would be easier for a noob?

Thank you for your wonderful site and forums. You all have taught me a great deal. I can hardly wait to be finished moving so I can pick up my new baby.

*Sparcky*

I don't think there are any noticeable personality differences between females and males. Females get a little bit bigger, and males are more likely to stop eating for a bit due to breeding season, but nothing that would affect personality.
Welcome to the forum Sparcky, and congrats on deciding to get a snake =)

Woohoo! You posted!!

As Dodo said, there's really no personality difference between the two. Females do get bigger, but there isn't really a difference. However, I do find that albino corn snakes tend to be more laid back ... I don't know why, it's just my own personal observation.

Smile Aggression???

What I have found is that all my females are more "Nest Protective" espacially my bullsnakes! Once they finally retract back into the nest area ( they hang 4 feet out of the rack trying to kill me), I can pretty much pick them up. Only a few will still try to take my hand off! lol
