Default Well, ive bit the bullet - CORN SNAKES

My brother and his wife are giving me 3 of their corn snakes. he will be left with the 10... i might take an even number, depends. they dont get kept together anyway but the more the merrier right?

Ive been given the low down on everything i need & will need etc. Looking forward to getting them home next weekend..

Will post photos of the lil guys when i get them

NOT exactly what i thought id get first as i didnt want snakes or spiders. i was all for a marmoset maybe or a bearded dragon or lizards alike

Im staying against spiders though

Corn snakes are great ... Just remember to always split them up when feeding them

Corn snakes are great snakes however, there are a lot of different views on co-habiting snakes, do a search and you'll find threads on it, also if they are young hatchlings then I would not house them together at all.

Oh and remember to post pics once you get them.

Personally I agree with the above I'd always house them seperate too but also as stated above .... PICTURES

I've co-habited boas successfully without any probs, but defo split for feeding that's a must!! Wouldn't advise co-habiting mind..separate housing is always a winner..

make it even, if you have the space to house 4 then it won't hurt to to make a nice round number

Congrat's and welcome to the club



psst guys.....OP didn't mention Co-hab... they are housed seperately already

If you have space for 4 vivs...then keep thm seperately if you can. Lots of people do cohabit - but lots dont also. If youre new to snake keeping youre better keeping seperately at least until you know the snakes and their behaviours and can recognise when bullying issues, competition for the best basking spots etc arise, which can be quite hard for a newbie.
