Snakes/New snake?

Question
I am wondering if I should get a ball python or a corn snake. I have read corn snakes are more fidgety than ball pythons but ball pythons require more care. Can you write the care for both snakes?

         Thanks-

Answer
What you have heard is exactly correct.  But neither is very difficult.  The books " the ball python manual" and "the corn snake manual" can tell youeeverything you need to know. If you are starting from scratch I'd recommend a trip to a reptile show vs. A pet store.  Cheaper prices and better advice.
