I have an adult pair of albino bull snakes. I've had them since they were babies - they still have a lot of attitude despite several years of handling, and being captive bred too. The female is around 7 foot long, and the male 5 foot, so they need quite a decent size enclosure. Most people I know won't go near my bull snakes because of the amount of hissing and huffing up that they do - they definitely let me know they don't want to be handled, but if I get them out, they usually calm down. They rarely try to bite, but are very food orientated.
I think the attitude stops them from being a great pet for the new reptile keeper, but for someone experienced who likes the idea of a snake with attitude they're a good option.
