A bearded dragon is good for a first lizard, I got my very first in Oct then I got my second in Nov LOL didn't take me long to get hooked, and they are both entirely different characters. Very Happy

Corn Snakes are able to take reasonable husbandry ‘abuse’ and have a generally good-natured. These animals are good to look at and are not fussy.

i would probably say a corn or a garter snake. the corn for the same reasons as everyone else, i guess you could say they're bomb-proof. the garter snake because that was my first, well i guess a first for the whole family realy. my dad got given one when i was 5 or 6 years old and that snake was my pride and joy for many a year, so i may be a little biased!

I voted for corn snake Very Happy

I started with a corn snake; her name is Amber (pictures of her are in the snake picture section Wink) Since then my collection's grown and I've expanded into different species.

Corn snake because they are a hardy snake who will be fine with a lot of begginer minor mistakes.

1 Snake that i also feel is a good beginers snake is a sand boa (kenyan being the best as their the most placid out of the Sand boa sub-species) or the Rosy boa as they are also very docile.

I don't have any experience with snakes but have two leopard geckos, that were my first reptiles. They are good starter reptiles in my opinion but then again my experience isn't all that vast! Laughing

Leopard geckos are ok but I feel wouldn't be up to the expectations of a beginner as they are nocternal, like many reptiles.
Cornsnakes or beardies would have to be my ideal choice.

But aren't corns pretty quick? Really quick, if I remember correctly. or was that rat snakes?

Whatever. I said Royals, because their markings are interesting, children can handle them without them getting away and they don't get too terribly long and they're usually pretty good eaters, so there's less worry and stress.

Non of my corns have ever been quick, but then mine are all handleable, so cant comment on any that aren't and would want to get away.

Definately rat snakes are faster.

Corn snakes are excellent first REPTILES, they can teach you all about humidity etc, so before you get a lizard, learning from a corn is def a must!

Royals/Balls Pythons are well natured animals but are known to be finicky eaters at times and are easily stressed due to environment requirements.
If the keeper makes a mistake pertaining to the heating arrangement these guys become very susceptible to lung problems.

Beautiful animals I do agree.
