Yep, corns are quite stinky, but I've found fresh boa 'logs' can be very stinky as well.

Nothing much you can do except remove the poo as and when the corn makes a deposit

Just clean up whenever they do a poop. I always leav a widow open i little the eve after they have eaten coz it is normally on day 3 mine poop

corn poo stinks!

what are you feeding him and how often (and how old/big is he)?

i feed him on large mice,hes over a year old and i feed him every 5 days.

Thanks every1 for the advice.x x x

try feeding a medium mouse every 7 days, if he's extra stinky it could be bits of undigested mouse in his poo.

If you're worried about this not being enough, my adults only get a medium every 7-14 days ;)
