okay :)
i wanna ask how many eggs can a corn snake (female) lay?
i am going to breed mine next year :) im hoping it will work she is having a new viv build and ill have a space for a male to keep for breeding... and what is the best way to house the babies in a viv all together or in little tubs of they own. any idea will be great.
thanks

eggs... up to high 20's..

hatchlings - seperate small tubs, much easier to keep and eye on and NO risk of them eating each other by mistake

thanks for the fast reply.
how easy would u say they will breed?
and how much must the female be (size)
would it be easy to build a stack and place a heat mat on the back or would it be easy to put all tubs in a big viv with heat mat on the back?

how easy, fairly easy tbh.. even when not cooled, many corns still breed come the spring. if you keep the male and female seperate, then when you put the male with the female, if he is ready to mate, you will notice he does like a double jerk/tap movement along her body, he will try and get on top, to pin her down. a receptive female will hold her tail up in the air to make it easier for him!







females.. generally i recomend the rule of 3

3 years old
3 foot in length or more
300g in weight or more

females can breed as young as a year old, but this is strongly not recommended, it can cause compliactions that can be lethal, and at the least results in a stunted adult who lays small clutches

hatchling set ups, either way works tbh.

i use a double shoe rack with heat mats taped to the rungs :)



and also a book case type one,



but i have used a big viv with a heatmat on the wall before now too



whilst i am digging up pics, you will need to incubate the eggs too, you can make a simple incubator like this..
