Im very worried about my corn snake. I have had him for 3 days and im new to reptile keeping. This is my first snake and i was wondering why he does not blink? He should be very healthy has hes on the right temprature heat mat on sand substrate and eats a pinkie a day. PLEASE HELP HAVE I DONE SOMETHING WRONG!?

yes, corn snakes do not do well on sand at all, the grains get under the scales and cause a lot of irritation

which care sheets did you read before you got him? if they are saying its ok to use sand, they should really be contacted and asked nicely to advise something else.

For christs sake, i come on these forums looking for help as a newbie and all i get is board flaming and abuse. i dont want to give up on the community but this just goes to show how little support there is out there for new guys like me.

nope - we all gave you advice, even apolagised if you weren't a troll - everyone on here gives good advice but your asking for it abit late now as you should have done your research sooner than this! :whistling2:
