    Sorry for the bad pics he wouldnt cooperate. I named him Chewie like chewbacca.:D

    By the way its a Baby corn snake.
    He has been really nice and hasn't bit me very gentle and it tickles when hes on my hand :D
    I fed him yesterday OMG he swalloed the thing in 2 seconds lol.


    He started climbing today after being buried the whole day.

    I disturbed him oopps!

    That looks really cool! What about a full tank shot?

    Ill take one when im done! I still have to get some decor and different climbing logs cause the ones I have are to small :( so it looks plain and boring lol.

    Ok. Do you feed Chewie mice?
  5. I keep fishWell Known MemberMember

    Sounds good, feed him one, and then after he poops it you can wait a day and feed him again(baby snakes are fun). Hes a cutie! lol, good to see him climbing, thats very good. The irony that you named him chewie, youll find out if he ever bites you :)

    I like his attitude he tried crawling up my arm hhehe it was funny.Im gonna upgrade when he gets bigger.

    Cute! I have an albino corn. As far as I've experienced they are a gentle, and quite social snake once they snuggle in. As a baby all mine did was hide, sleep, eat, poop, shed, repeat! So long as you don't wash your hands in mice blood they are very unlikely to bite--avoid associating food with your hand and it'll never bite you :) plenty of handling away from feeding time also helps.

    Within a few months they get much braver--it might just prefer lounging outside its hides after a while. Spoil your child while you can...I have a 3 ft yearling that keeps me up all night climbing around whenever its "hungry" (all the time) lol

    Cool! I've always liked snakes (but don't tell mom, she'd kill me for saying that!);)

    We need picture updates!
    My little girl(ok little no more) is always cruising the tank when shes starving. Normally just during the day though, shes more of a afternoon-dusk kinda gal.

    my adult corns would eat anywhere between 5 to 10 f\t small rats a feeding about every two weeks. the male was great very calm the female i would have to over her tank and let her come out on her own before i would touch her.
