I read somewhere recently that non-furry pets were becoming more popular again with kids, so I started doing some research around which types of pets are recommended (mostly reptiles). For this post, I’ve decided to focus on the best snakes for kids to keep as pets, because snakes are often a pretty polarizing reptile.
Some are poisonous and life-threatening; others are harmless and perfectly fine for a pet. (There are actually over 2,500 different species of snakes, which I had no idea about!)
If you’re considering a snake for a pet, there are a few important things you need to know. Keep reading, and we’ll cover all of that including which are the best snakes for kids.
