You can set them up as a "look only" pet like we do with fish, but I find that terribly boring. LOL! (Of course, if you keep venomous species aka "hots" they are definitely not for handling. But THAT is a whole 'nother topic.)

Snakes don't *need* interaction to thrive, not like dogs and cats, but I personally would say that some do enjoy it, depending on the snake. They aren't really going to be cuddly and lovey like a pet mammal, but most will still be perfectly willing to hang out with you. They do have distinct personalities, too, though not as defined as we are used to with dogs, etc.

Cornsnakes in general are particularly docile when it comes to being handled. I have seven corns. Six of them will come to the front of their habitat to see me when I open up their lids. The seventh... is a jerk. LOL. He doesn't bite or anything like that, but if you touch him he flails around like "OMG UR KILLINZ MEEEEE!" Once you have him out for a few minutes he will eventually calm down and be perfectly fine after that. He's definitely the exception to the rule.
