Oh ok what even at such a young age?
although the recommended age for breeding corns is 3 years old, the males start to mature at around 18 months, and snakes are the same as humans, some mature early n others later,

So i would agreed with Cornmorphs, n say its the time of year.

you can put a female in after she has shed, although you might want to look up more before you do that.

yep sonds like his hormones have kicked in. If your looking to breed them I would recommend the corn snake manual. Best to get as much info as you can.
