do you think £25 is a good price for an 06 amel corn?

I know little but i will offer what i know.

Dont forget corns grow to about 3/4 foot in length and dont stay that small forever.

Substrate wise either kitchen rols or repti bark i belive are good.

I've never kept one but am planning to get one at some point in the near future.

there are hundreds of caresheets out there as well.

Price is very good, and yes a brillaint beginer snake to begin with. The best way to research for your new snake is via the web, get your mate to look at the following care sheet:

Very thurough care sheet and you don't need to know more than this really but do study lots of care sheets. They're very easy to take care of corns, and great temprements.

Good first snake.

Lots and lots of research!!!

Price is good, but I'd be sceptical about how cheap it is. Try researching what a healthy snake should look like first and make sure it has no bumps in its spine.

Just as long as it has ventilation holes it needn't be anything special.
