Sorry - I don't keep snakes but it doesn't sound too good. Why don't you post this in the snake section - I'm sure you'd get more replies.

hi,

have you tried warming or brainingor scenting the pinkie?if so and it still won't eat get a chick and defrost it. remove a leg and remove its foot as well. try feeding the chick thigh to your corn. if its nice and warm it may take it.

O dear, sorry to hear that. Sounds like the little one was doomed from the start. Honestly cant believe someone sold you a deformed corn and obviously deformed to the point of being unable to eat

sorry to hear about your loss, i dont suppose you have thought about questioning the store you got it from. and probably the last thing you want to hear but have you thought about another snake yet?
