A nice starter snake! featured

Comments My first ever snake was purchased in 2007, and he's still thriving today. As with all reptiles I advise that people still research before buying!
Corn snakes are among the cheapest you can purchase and also amongst the easiest to care for, with correct temps and care Corn snakes are a joy to keep!

They have a steady growth rate, and with gentle continued handling from a young age, they can become very tame snakes, I even let my 3 year old son hold my 3 year old corn (with supervision.
Diet is easy, you just feed them 1-2 mice or rats (Size dependant entirely on the snake, if in doubt ask the a reptile specialist at the pet shop)every 1-2 weeks for an adult. Don't get your snake out for at least 2 days after they have eaten though!
Every once a week for a young snake. Cleaning, simple...you see poo...you clean out the poo, change the substrate and top up when needed. Fresh water provided daily, keep an eye on the temperature.

Housing wise, 3ft Vivariums are suitable for adult corns, as they take 3 years to reach their fully grown size which averages at about 3ft, a friend of mine however has a corn who has reached almost 5 feet in length! 27-30*C in the hot end (Just a heat mat will suffice for that) They do not need any special lighting, the lights I have in my corn snakes housing is purely for my benefit so I can see properly when doing the house cleaning :) Initially the costly part is getting the correct housing to maintain a happy healthy environment for your corn but after that its usually plain sailing.

Now I personally have a moist moss hide half on the hot end and half off of it. I find my corn really enjoys sitting in warm moist tub, and it also aids with getting nice clean sheds.

Activity wise, I see my adult male at various times of the day, getting a drink, having a nose around or just relaxing in general...my female on the other hand is still very young so spends the majority of her time hiding.....All in all a pleasure to keep!


Liked about it Easy to care for.
Pleasure to watch when exploring or eating.
Nice calm snakes.
Lots of lovely morphs!


Didn't like I can honestly say there isn't anything I dislike about owning my corn snake...But other people may disagree!
(They are addictive though! lol)

Fantasic reptile to keep - this was one of our first purchases. featured

Comments Recommend corn snakes to all:

After researching we purchased 3 (as we got a good deal)
Very easy to look after, clean and fed.
I had a fear of snakes and these have helped with that fear - they growth is steady and you get used to them. Never had a problem with them - no illness. But we have ensured correct temps, housing, heat and food. So kept correclty can thrive!

The cost and set up are one of the cheapest - so its nice that anyone can start off with a corn snake.



Liked about it 1. Easy to hold - espeically for children
2. Come in a variety of colours -
3. Housing doesnt take up much room
4. So interesting watching them eat - still amazes me.
5. They are so easy to keep - dont take much mantinance


Didn't like There is no bad points but they are addictive lol. They are known to escape -- but we have never had this problem.

Totally Brilliant Snakes! featured

Comments I have been keeping corn snakes for about 4 years now, and I have them incredibly easy and "bomb proof" to care for, snake wise.

I do speak regularly to keepers of many a different and wider and mixed species, and in comparison, the corn snake is far easier to keep than any other species!

Corn snakes take about three years to fully grow, to an average length of five feet and 2~3 inches in gridth. This snake does not require a huge amount of space, a three foot vivarium or even a 50L RUB (plastic storage box) shall suffice, meaning it is a perfect snake sizewise for the snake newbie.

This snake is fairly active, being crespecular, they tend to wake up and cruise around their enclouser around early evening to early morning, from about 6pm to 6am is there active hours, I regularly see my corn snakes out and about a many different times of the day, to have a whizz around, have a drink, and chill out.

This snake with regular handling will become puppy dog tame, and they generally are upon hatching and are notoriously nippy when theyr'e hatchlings, like boa's or king snakes. One paticular snake I've had for eleven months only showed one sign of aggression, when he rattled his tail at me when I startled him by accident.

This snake is incredibly easy to care for. Of course the first initial cost of setting up their habititat can be quite costly, but its mainly a "plug in, n' go" snake, as corn snakes do not need humidity, it eliminates any problems that may occur in other snakes by not maintain the humidity level,

corn's do well at a spectrum of tempretures for 27-30*C in the warmer end, which must be regulated by a thermostat, and a cooler area, of around 20/23*C or room tempreture. Tempretures should be monitored by a digital thermometer, and will need a monthly change of many variety of substrates, such as newspaper to aspen, and all their hides and furnishes will be cleaned at this time with daily spot cleans, with daily fresh water.



Liked about it 1) Temprement.
2) Variety of colours (morphs)
3) Size of snake and final set up
4) Price!


Didn't like Theyr'e too addictive!! :)

Brilliant beginner snake featured

Comments The corn snake has to be one of the best beginner snakes on the market. They are hardy creatures that can tolerate the normal mistakes that are made when starting out. As long as they have the correct set up they are an extremely rewarding animal to keep as well as being fascinating to watch. Out of the snakes I own I find my corns to be the most active. They are known to be good feeders which is an important thing to consider when wanting to gain experience with snakes.

They tolerate regular handling well and I have not been bitten by any of mine as of yet. Another appealing attribute of the corn snake is that they do not grow very large, this also makes them great for a new started in the reptile world as they are extremely easy to handle even when fully grown.

And don't forget corn snakes come in a wide range of colours and patterns and this allows the new owner to have a hug choice on the look of their new pet.


Liked about it Good temperament
Easy to handle
Good feeders


Didn't like Shape of body may not appeal to everyone

Cannot think of an other bad points on these wonderful creatures

Great For starting out! featured

Comments If you think of a true beginners snake, you must think of Elaphe guttata or the Red Rat Snake (Corn Snakes). Never before has there been what you could almost refer to as a "Truly domesticated snake"..Bred in a huge array of patterns and colours!

Corn snakes are one of the least demanding of snakes when it comes to getting temps and humidity just right, so you will find they are amongst the easiest of the snakes to keep. As long as you provide them with heat, a hide or too, fresh substrate and a water bowl, they will do well.
Keep corns at around 26 - 28c, they do not need the high temps of the boas and pythons. A hide or too, one at each end, cool and hot will allow the snake to thermoregulate, and a substrate of newspaper or aspen is acceptable. Corns do well in a three foot viv, or RUBS or Faunariums.

Corns are avid feeders on domesticated mice and will take a pink every five days or so when young, progressing onto adults and extra-large adults as they grow. I do not feed my corns on Rats as i find it can make them obese, but this is a personal choice.
Corns are not usually aggressive, hatchlings are quick and will often "Tail Rattle" at you, but adults are calm well behaved handelable snakes!

Corns will grow to four or five feet and are very active...you will often see them out and about during the day. Although frowned upon corns can easily be cohabited, as long as you seperate to feed...best kept in pairs or in groups of two females to one male!

If you are looking for an easy to look after, tame snake the Corn could well fit your bill!


Liked about it Corns are very easy to care for and tame.
Come in the most mind boggling arrray of colours.
Not too demanding of temperatures and not prone to Respiratory infections.


Didn't like The corn in my eyes really doesnt have any bad points.

A SNAKE FOR ALL!!! featured

Comments The corn snake is a brilliant snake that is kept widely throughout the reptile world, it is easy to handle and easy to maintain, they require an average size enclosure of around 3-4FT long, they are classed as anon aggressive snake but they can bite, like all living things and the bite is rarely painful, they can be kept on a variety of substrates, I find that aspen bedding works well as it is cheap, widely available, makes clear where your pets have done their "business" and it is not costly to keep replacing, corn snakes also like to hide within the substrate so it is advisable to put plenty inside their enclosure, they do not need high humidity infact quite the opposite they need very little and too much can cause them to have respiritory problems, as hatchlings they can be fed "pinky" mice and as they grow you can adjust the size of food items to suit, eventually ending around the small rat size for adults, they are not fast growing snakes and can take quite a long time to reach adult size, they are great around people of all ages and sizes, but beware around very young children as corn snakes are egg layers meaning there is a risk of salmonella poisoning however minimal this may be.
Corns do not need any type of lighting more for you too see inside the enclosure than the snakes to see where they are going, they are available widely and also in a range of "morphs" however the nicer the morph the more expensive the snake, on the whole these are a nice and cheap snake and relatively cheap to set-up,

No complaints..


Liked about it Easy to handle and house,
cheap to maintain and feed,
their lack of need for lighting makes them cheaper still.


Didn't like they are great snakes would recommend for the beginner or enthusiast!!

The perfect snake! featured

Comments Corn Snakes (Elaphe guttata guttata) are regarded as one of the best beginner snakes, due to their docile temperament and manageable adult size.

There are many CB (Captive Breed) corns snakes available from pet stores or private breeders; they come in a variety of different colours (morphs) and patterns.

Corn snakes size averages between 3 1/2ft and 5ft. It has been said that some have reached 6ft, but this is very rare.

Captive Corn snakes have the potential to live for over 18 years; records exist of Corns over 22 years of age.
Diet:

The diet for Corn Snakes includes:

* Rats (Rat Pups, Weaner)
* Mice (Pinkies, Fuzzy, Small, Medium, Large & Jumbo)

As your snake grows in size then the food they are being offered should also increase. As a general rule of thumb Corn snakes so should not be offered food any wider than the widest point of their body.

A hatching Corn Snakes should be fed 1 pinkie every 5-6 days and adults should be fed adult mice once every 7-10 days.

Do not handle your snake for 48 hours after feeding, as they can regurgitate their food, which is harmful to them, if your snake does regurgitate its food, try to feed him again in 5-7 days time.
Housing:

Hatching Corn Snakes should be kept in an appropriately sized RUB (Really Useful Box) or Exo Terra Faunarium (I would recommend the large size) as it has been known for them to stop feeding if they are put into too large areas/vivariums straight away.

Adult Corn snakes require a minimum size 36'x 18'x18' (L x W x H) vivarium. This will comfortably house a single adult for life. Of course the bigger is always better. I house my single corn snake in a 3ft x 2ft x 2ft vivarium

Inside the Vivarium you require a water bowl for your snake to drink from and also to be able to soak in, so make sure this is large enough for your snake and is heavy so it cannot be tipped over. Water needs replacing daily.

Snakes also require somewhere for them to hide. You can use commercially made hides or construct your own out of cardboard or old flowerpots, you should place one in the cool end and one in the hot end of the vivarium so your snake has a choice.

Substrate

There are many types of substrates that can be used for corn snakes. You can use bark chips, beech chips, kitchen roll and newspaper. The most common substrate used is Aspen as its easy to replace and the snakes can burrow through it, also it looks very appealing.

When feeding your snake you should remove him for the vivarium, as they can ingest the substrate with the feed, which can cause impaction problems, or even death. I move Picollo to a plastic RUB on newspaper when feeding.

Temperature and humidity:

Snakes require a temperature gradient, as they need to thermoregulate (warm themselves up). The warm end of the enclosure should be kept at around 80F. The cool end of the enclosure should be around 75F. The temperature gradient ratio should stay the same at night but drop by approximately 5 degrees. Thermometers should be placed at either end of the viv to ensure temperatures are correct.

Please do make sure you use a reliable thermostat for your heatmat or bulb, as they can overheat causing harm to your snake, there are many types of thermostats available, I recommend a Habistat one.


Liked about it 1) easy to look after
2) wide choice of morphs
3) like to be handled
4) great to be around children


Didn't like Nothing, I love everything about corn snakes, they are the perfect snake!

My number one snake featured

Comments Corn snakes are a real passion of mine. Over the last 15 years of breeding I can honestly say I've never had a bad corn snake! I would recommend them to anyone, whether you're a first time keeper or an experienced one.

This is a medium sized small bodied snake from the USA, reaching anywhere between 4 and 6ft, but weighing in at only 300 - 800g usually as adults - some are a little bit chunkier than others but in general this is quite a slender snake. Available in dozens of morphs captive bred in the UK, it has one of the highest availabilities in the pet trade.

There are a massive amount of books and resources available, the Corn Snake Manual by Bill & Kathy Love being the "bible" of corn snakes, and well worth a read.

Corn snakes can be kept in very simple correctly heated environments, from tubs and rubs to racks up to vivs, a 36 x 18 x 18 or 48 x 18 x 18" will provide an excellent display viv for an adult corn snake. They will use anything you give them - whether it's caves or logs, bark, branches, plants, they're an active, generally confident and inquisitive snake, so although nocturnal, you will get to see them exploring now and then.

They're excellent feeders, and once a hatchling is well established they usually experience no problems, except for males who may go off their food during breeding season.

Although they brumate in the wild, there is no need to do this in captivity other than to stimulate breeding activity, so you can enjoy the snake all year around.

You will need to securely guard the lighting and make sure the enclosure is 100% escape proof, as this snake is adventurous and will make their way out of small holes or gaps, or will wind themselves around unguarded bulbs resulting in burns.

But overall - this is in my opinion one of the best all time snakes that will make a great pet for anyone from aged 6 to 90!


Liked about it Three positive things about corn snakes are:
- Great starter size, easily handleable but not big enough to intimidate newcomers
- Huge availability of captive bred animals in the UK, including a massive range of morphs
- Very economical, both to buy, to setup, and to maintain, even morphs are relatively inexpensive, so you can always have a few different colours!


Didn't like Three negative things about this snake are:
- Some people are put off by the fact they are considered too "common", ie. everyone seems to have one.
- Some people get bored by them, as they are so easy to keep
- Hatchlings can sometimes be a little feisty, with a bit of tail rattling and the occasional strike - but they very quickly tame down, and they can't even break the skin as babies, so not to worry!

Best snake ever!

Comments I always joke that to kill a Corn you'd have to cut it's head off, they are so easy to care for. I've had a fair few, and they all have their own personailites. I personally enjoy getting them as hatchlings, because they grow quite quickly, and it's fun to witness. Mine all have a warmer end (for digesting food) and a cooler end, with a good size water dish, as they like to bathe. They eat appropriately sized defrosted mice, once a week as a baby moving to about once every 10-14 days. They usually refuse a feed if they're in shed, so check before you defrost! I handle mine as often as possible, at least twice a week, one of these times is to feed, I do not feed in the viv as I use wood chips for substrate and this causes illness in your snake if they swallow it. I have a big rub I drop the mouse in and allow the snake inside to feed, then place them straight back in their viv. Don't handle then for at least 48 hours, while they digest their meal, or there is a chance or regurgitation.
They are not at all aggressive, they are inquisitive (borderline nosey!) and friendly. They are notorious escape artists though, so make sure your enclosure is secure!


Liked about it Nosey personalities, tame, beautiful colour morphs available - something for everyone


Didn't like Honestly, nothing I can fault them for

Great wee snakes!

Comments I have 16 of these lovely little snakes, and would happily have many more. All have interesting personalities and quirks, meaning that although these are labelled as a beginner species they are actually far from boring.

Housing wise, some of mine live in vivs, some in tubs or RUB'S. Both seem to suit the snakes just fine, meaning you can be as basic or luxurious with your decor and substrates as you like. Mine are heated either on mats, or in a rack system with heat cable (statted of course). I feed most of mine on mice, though most will also take rats. I do not give my snakes additional supplements unless I am planning on breeding or they are ill- which is very rare as corns are hardy and forgiving snakes.

These are very good snakes for novices, though hatchlings can be quick and snappy to handle. Adults are a better purchase for a first time snake, being bigger, slightly slower and easier to handle, despite the added length.

As with all snakes, do your research before buying, be aware they are addictive, and make sure you are able to commit to a pet with a 20+ year lifespan.


Liked about it Huge variety of morphs
Very simple to care for
Hardy and forgiving but not boring


Didn't like Very good escape artists
Have a reputation for being dull (not true)
Can be difficult to handle as youngsters

Perfect for beginners

Comments All you need is to get them a properly heated 2' viv and a suitable sized mouse once a week, very easy.
They are not very active and they usually just remain hidden most of the day.
They are very docile (they can be slightly nippy when they are young) and they grow to a not too big size of maximum 6', 5'-4' is much more common though.

There's lots of information on them which you can easily find on the internet which is always helpful.

Breeding them is a very easy task and they come in a whole different range of morphs.


Liked about it - Comes in TONS of morphs
- They are very docile
- They don't get too big


Didn't like - They are not very active
- Cleaning after them can be quite tiresome

#1 snake

Comments Corn snakes are pretty hardy and can stand cooler tempratures than most other snakes, there are pretty docile snakes except for mine i handle him loads put still goes for me we have a love hate relationship, they are quiet active snakes mainly at nights, once snakes are out of viv they are pretty active and can be quiet quick. they require a smallish viv as large space can freak them out, good small starter vivarium for hatchling and up in size with age to 3ft vivarium. they eat frozen food which is good.


Liked about it 1. quiet cheap to buy.
2. docile
3. easy to keep

Best starter snake

Comments personally i think the corn snakes is the best starter snake. it keeps reasonably small - 4-6ft. and are usually quite placid and enjoy being handled. all they need is a heat mat in there viv. not spot light or UV required. they only need to be fed every 5-7 days for youngesters and every 7-10 days for adults, so if you work long hours, it wont really matter. there cheap to look after, as there is little electricity. every snakes has there own personality, one of my is very curious about new things, and the onther rather shy.


Liked about it differnt colours/morphs

easy to look after

loveable


Didn't like dont let them escape, espceially as hatchlings, becuase with there slender bodys, they can go any where, as where snakes such as boas have a wide girth, they are generally easier to find in my opinion.

The snake that got me into reptiles !

Comments This was the snake that got me into herping i was only nine when i got my Carolina corn domina. they are generally very tame and dont mind being handled, they are very easy to care for not needing any high humidity or large caging requirements. corn snakes are most active during dusk and mine is usually out and about looking for food at this time. corn snakes feed very well and start of with pinkies when first hatched and then feeding on monster mice when adult. Bare in mind they you should only be housing one corn on its own and not with another unless breeding etc. they are very stunning to look at and have many different types of morphs they are definitely one of the best snakes for a beginner !.


Liked about it - stunning colours
- relatively small size but not to small
- ease of care


Didn't like - not as active as some other species

The best snake

Comments These are by far the best snake for everyone, just some people more advanced at keeping snakes than others so for them these may be to easy! But for most these are the best to start with and the cheapest long term as csts are low, set up cost is low, running cost is low, feeding cost is low, buying the snake even morphs are low.. Also very common so easy to find one for purchase and easy to sell on if need be. I wont go into full details on set ups ect as other reviews have done that really well.


Liked about it Colourful - with plenty of choice.

Easy to purchase - there everywhere!

Good all rounder - nothing to fault!


Didn't like Not being able to keep one of every colour as theres to many!

Great for beginners and experianced keepers alike

Comments These snakes are such rewarding creatures to keep they come in so many colour morphs, and are very reasonably priced. You don't often find an aggressive or bitey corn and its usually due to them not being handled enough or not being fed enough. and easy snake to keep for all ages. Not a large snake grows to around 5ft and is a very long lived creature usually around 15years. Usually active at night. and not a great deal of dificulties with housing or feeding, kept in a tank or really useful box (with good ventalation) kept on a heatmat with a thermostat. Aspen bedding as a favourite for corn snakes. keep with a couple of hides and a water bowl. feed every couple of weeks on one to two mice (size of mouse varies on size of snake)


Liked about it Such a wonderful captivating snake, You will not get bored of watching them and keeping them, they come in so many colour morphs which will mean you will allways have more than one! They are easy to keep, they don't smell (if kept clean) they arn't agressive so they are brilliant to have when you have kids. i love that these snakes are so widely available and are great prices its a winning combo! Their upkeep is easy and cheap too you wont spend more than £10-£20 a month on food, substrate ect for them.


Didn't like There is only one thing i dislike about this snake and thats the view that some people have that they are a beginners snake and just that, im not a newbie keeper and i will always love and keep corn snakes.
Only other problem, you will never stop at one corn snake.

Who wouldnt!????

Comments this snake is probably the nicest, friendlest, calmest snake i know i have never met or held a nasty corn snake, a great things about this snake is that you can have it in so many colours, if you dont like reds go for the black, if you dont like black go for the white! you think of anycolour you want and you can get it in corn snake! its like a designer bag!

anyway lets talk about keeping the snake this snake for a long period of time will be happy in a faunarium with a heat mat, water bowl and a hide at both ends, then at a year old move it into a 2/3ft vivarium with a heat mat, now about UV many people say they dont need UV but i give mine a very low 2.0 bulb which i put on in the day...i think it helps growth but alot of people will argue that with me.

so for this snake you need a 2ft viv heat mat and any acessories you want:)
temperature should be between 25-28 and can be controlled with a thermostat
feeding this snake is also very easy nearly all corn snakes will eat!

i feed my hatchings once every 4 days...then moving up to a adult being fed every 10 days
they start out on pinkies and move up when you feel like it you should never feed it anything wider that 1.5x its width! the snake can grow up to 6 ft but most average out at about 5ft.
as a starter snake THIS is the one to go for i always tell people to get this snake


Liked about it very easy snake
small amount of room
friendly


Didn't like can be flighty when young

Thinking of getting into snake-keeping? This is your snake!

Comments This is an amazing snake for beginners and experienced reptile keepers. You do not need to be an expert on cold blooded creatures but like me you may soon find yourself trying to absorb every bit of knowledge you find. It is pretty slow growing and allows you to keep a hatching for 9-12 months in a large faunarium or a RUB without problems. Upon reaching a decent size (2 footish) it's time to move to a 3ft viv. Woods better than a glass viv as corns do not need high humidity. It is best to keep a corn alone except for breeding purposes. My 2 cornsnakes are very active and love to be handled. I prefer keeping corns to cats or dogs and they are just as easy to keep. They are also extremely simple to feed, not at all fussy eaters.


Liked about it 1. They are an easy to keep snake which believe me will lead to you desiring to own more.
2. Very tame and great to handle.
3. Suitable for all ages and experience levels.


Didn't like 1. Touching the frozen mice can be unpleasant but can be rectified by using tongs or forceps.

Comments Corns are one of the most relaxed snakes you can find. They are widely regarded as fantastic starter snakes, and for those that develop a real passion, they are fascinating to breed and see the different morphs two corns could create.

I am one of those people and tend to buy higher end morphs (there a ridiculous number of morphs) - however, it's quite possible to find a normal morph hatchling for around £10 from a private seller, or ?25 from a shop, and set ups aren't too expensive.

I won't repeat all the info that other reviewers have posted - I will just say that corn snakes are one of the most easy snakes to keep, and definitely recommended.


Liked about it - Don't grow too big.
- Easy to feed, and cheap too!
- Cheap to set up
- If you don't mind the morphs, the individual snake is fairly cheap.


Didn't like ....I can't think of any downsides to a snke like this!

Best Starter Snake

Comments By far one of the most commonly kept snakes in captivity. A corn snake was my first snake, and the firt snake for most reptile owners.

They are very easy to look after, with complete set up's costing about £75. Corn snakes are known to be very placid, so the chances of it biting are very low. They will grow at a steady rate, if fed at a steady rate, but will not exceed the 6-7ft mark (but there are always exeptions). They are reativly active, but prefer to slither around and expolre during the night. There are always set temparatures needed to keep snakes succesfully, this does NOT exclude Corn snakes. They rareley miss feeds, unlike Royal Pythons, and should be fed every 5 days-for first 3 months, then every 7 days, and when they are nearly fully grown, they should be fed every 11-14 days. Always feed them rodents about 1.5 times the width of their head.


Liked about it 1. Loveley variety of colours
2. Very easy to handle
3. Easy to keep
4. Cheap


Didn't like There's nothing to dislike about these amazing snakes

Would recomend these snakes to anyone.

Comments These snakes are very easy and hardy making ideal snakes for the beginner and expirienced, I have yet to be bitten by one of these snakes (although there will lickley be exceptions)I find them to be very docile in temperment having owned 10 corn snakes so far. In regards to growth I consider them to grow slowly compared to other snakes but thats just my opinion not fact. I have seen these snakes thrive well in temperatures and humidity enviroments that go well against all the facts making me think they are excellent choices for a pet.
They are also very easy to breed and there are thousands of colourations to choose from far to many to list.


Liked about it I like the corn snake due to its excellent temperment, (trusting this snake with my 5 year old nephew)
Its excellent ease of housing and keeping at the right temperature.
So far one has never refused a feed off me unless its been in season or gravid.


Didn't like If I was to find one thing wrong with this snake its that some of the colourations and types are more boring than others but that is just me.
These snakes are also cheap and bred constantly having a major impact on the pet industry I suppose to rescues that is not a good thing.

good for beginners

Comments A joy to keep. Not a lot of work in them, change the water once a day and feed once a week. full of character really docile and love being handled. A 3ft tank is perfect for them and it's fun watching them climb on branches and search around their viv's after its been cleaned and everythings been moved around. Easy to keep just always check that the viv is closed right as there is alot of stresss when they get out.


Liked about it 1. full of character
2. easy to keep
3. loads of morphs


Didn't like they are little escape artists, i lost my first due lo a bit of aspen getting stuck in the glass slider.

Bomb proof!!!

Comments Fantastic snakes that require the minimum care in the snake world. Plenty of care sheets to inform new keepers, plenty of experience shared on RFUK. Every corn I have come across has been a pleasure, good feeders, beautiful variations, can grow to a manageable size and they are the one snake that you could describe as almost tame.

Often these snakes show very little to no aggression at all, can grow to around 4.5 foot and have been known to reach 6 foot. They cannot co-exist with any other animal in the same vivarium as all snakes are solace creatures. These snakes are very active in comparison to other starter snakes like the Royal Python, they also eat defrost mice willingly.


Liked about it Beautiful variations
Tame, placid personalities
Perfect beginner snake


Didn't like Genuinely can't think of any!
