Smile Paint fumes

Does anyone know if paint fumes harm corn snakes? I need to do some decorating and any information would be great.

they can sometimes harm humans so the chances are they may harm snakes.

Yep treat as if toxic just in case, like air freshners or fly spray, keep them well clear. You can get that reduced odour paint, which should allow you to put them back quicker though.

Please see my website for further information on my collection and snakes for sale.
