Eyes are cloudy; he's getting ready to shed. He'll be all bright and beautiful after. Oh, and probably hungry.

If I remember right snakes get uneasy when it is time for them to shed and will strick at anything. Hopefully once he has shed he will be a nice well behaved little guy.

Oh he's a booger all the time lol. He'll look wonderful after his shed! He's the only snake here to not eat before a shed. My baby corn shed last night and my king should shed tomorrow. Kellendros by the end of the week touch wood!

He's also probably an adolescent in age right about now, and wasn't treated well before. We all know snakes aren't exactly on an intelligence level with other animals, but they have their own kind of smarts. Corn snakes aren't known to be a laid back species in the first place, and now he's going blind, and his skin is probably sensitive as well. Patience, Plat. But I don't think I'm telling you anything you didn't already know.

I like to think so *nods*
I invented LOLrats too

Yup Draco, as I said, he's a rescue that's never been handles, so this is to be expected, and actually Corns are one of the nicest snakes going, WHEN handled correctly! It's Kings with the bad rep, tho my mexi black is the nicest king I've ever met! Anyhoo, Khellendros will come round slowly, he'll never be cuddly, but I don't care, he's wonderful as he is, I do like a nice feisty snake! He shed today, hopefully he'll eat tonight. Measuring his shed, it comes in at 4 feet long, nearly as tall as my kids!

Looking gorgeous in his new skin!


being a tree boa!


With the hubby (who he HATES) and his shed. Hubby is 6 foot tall.


We can now get him out of the tank without so much rattling and hissing, tho he will refuse to get off you and get back in so he's finally realised that out = fun!

We've decided that he's a corn x cobra x boa lmao

Beautiful corn snake! Found 2 in the wild when my parents and I were at one of the local national parks here in Tennessee. Been close to,oh god!, 18 years now( I was 15 or 16 at the time). My word, how time slips by! Anyway, as I said , beautiful! And should tame down fairly fast, as snakes in the rat snake family generally make good pets.
