Default Some pics of my snake

I'm happy with these ones, he's getting so fast now and tends to spend half his time trying to climb onto my camera, so he's a challenging subject!

I agree and would also include "very inquisitive" as well. So what type of snake is he/she?

He's a corn snake He looks to be a hypomelanistic classic or normal, which means he's paler than normal, this will be proven in three years when we breed him!

He will grow between 3 and 6 feet in length, I think he'll be closer to 6 foot with the rate he is growing.

He is eating pinkie mice at the moment, one or two a feeding every 5 days, depending on how hungry he is. He took 2 yesterday and couldn't move fast cos he was all full blessim. I did get pics but I dunno that people would like to see pics of a snake eating lol.

I'm getting a hypo. bloodred female to breed to him for my B'day in 3 weeks, am very excited and will get pics of her when she gets here! Must get pics of my bearded dragon, sticks and rats too lol.

Thanks for the replies!

I don't generaly care for snakes...but your little guy is guite lovely in his coloring. How big do his eyes get when looking at your *Rat* buddies. Are you sure you want to have both kinds of pets in one household??? How are your rats doing these days? Good luck and I hope he grows up big and cuddly!!!

Oh he doesn't see rat as a food source lol, he's on mice, and baby ones at that, and he won't get big enough for big rats like my fat bunch lol. I'd be more worried they'd eat HIM! My rats are good, I need to get pics of em sooner or later cos it's been a while since we had a photoshoot!

Pyro is already coming to get cuddles now, here's hoping that he grows up cuddly as well, cos I'd hate to end up with a biter! Not that corn bites hurt cos they only have little tiny teeth!

The girls are rex, which in an ideal world means they are curly haired. In reality, not many rex rats are good rexes and tend to have that 'finger just removed from plug socket' look to em!

They're floofy!

At least they're not naked mole rats.............yecccchhh!

Rats make excellent pets, better than hamsters and gerbils. Corn snakes are borderline as far as pet reptiles. As they get older, they can become aggressive. In nature they have to be, so keep him as socialized (as much as snakes can be) as he grows.

Also, not a good idea to handle him before he sheds, as his vision is impared. His eyes will clear a day or so before he sheds, but he might be cranky.

Hope I'm being helpful, and not telling you what you already know. I used to have a breeding pair of boas.

*grins* I have naked rats, tho not naked mole rats.


I've kept snakes for yeeeeeeears! Thank you though cos I could well have been a first time owner! I never handle when they are shedding normally, but the thing with this dude is that he's so darned friendly that he has to generally be caught on his way out of the tank or he'll launch right out! He's the friendliest corn I've ever met!

His eyes have cleared again, roll on shed!
