Default Variety for my corn snake

My corn snake weighs 350 grams and is eating large mice. I would like to offer a bit of variety to his diet so what other food can I offer him that's about the same size as a large mouse.

Nothing.

Though I have never tried, I reckon I know a species that would.

Indigoes.

They eat ANYTHING (books, trousers, plant pots...)

Thanks for the help and advice, looks like an order is going to frozen reptiles

Although them frozen chicks look bigger then large mice! are you sure my corn would be ok with them?

Thanks again

Ian.

I *believe* that at only 350g a chick would be too big yet. The 'hips' are quite a bit wider on the chicks than the mice. You could always just order a few and then save them until later if they are too big. I've never fed chicks - read too many horror stories of them exiting the other end
