    My stat was returned today :2thumb: After sending it off on Thursday to be repaired. That's blooming fast! There was a lot more wrong with it than i thought. I thought it was just a case of glueing the tip of the probe back on and shoveing the wires back into the stat. But it had...

    Please can anyone advise me on where the best place to learn how to sex snakes is? Or even better is there anyone who would be willing to teach me? I have read the theory of popping and probing, but do not want to attempt either until I have had some proper instruction as I don't want to risk...

    As the title suggests I would be very grateful if someone with experience in sexing snakes would probe my cb11 corn snake. The corn snake weighs 170 grams and is just over 3ft long. I have a car so can travel but would prefer someone local (TS14). Please drop me a pm if you can help. Thanks Ian.
