A week ago, my 7 year old daughter caught our RGS in the woods. This snake has quickly become a part of our family. We were getting worried when she wouldnt eat the crickets that we placed in her habitat. We have read website after website on suggestions for feeding, holding, lighting, etc. None really give a single clear answer. All seem to have different suggestions. So maybe our experience will be helpful. Much to our suprise, "Katie" loves to be held! She loves to curl around my daughters hand and cuddle into her neck. She enjoys her branches to climb on, though doesnt seem to spend much time in her covered log, nor in her water. Though, we believe she goes there, as her bedding seems to be in the water. She sometimes sleeps near the heating pad we have under her aquarium. But prefers her branches. Finally, today, she ate two very tiny crickets, after spitting out a meal worm...litterally! But, again, to our suprise, she would only eat it if we hand fed it to her. How many should we give her? We dont really know, but we'll try again in a few days. We did place a couple in her home for her to try and catch. Hope this may be helpful to anyone as confused as we are. This little snake is so sweet, and so lovable, that we hope she continues to adjust well to life with us.

I got a hatchling corn snake for my birthday. Turns out he had mites, and they were fatel. Corn snakes make great pets and are easy to take care of. Make sure you ask to see the snake fed before you buy it. You want a healthy, snake that will eat. Also you want to check for mites and ticks as they can be fatel if you snake is small. If your snake is getting thinner, or not eating this can be a sign of mites or ticks. I am getting a new one tomorrow, it is a black corn.

My green anoles are Izzy, Greeny and Scar. It's fun to watch them eat rollie pollies and other bugs.

We just had a huge freak-out about one of these things, measuring at least 8 inches. But he's no longer with us. They are pesky & rather creepy creatures when they are not wanted.

My cousins and I went to the pet shop to find a pet and who knew we'd end up buying a tarantula? I'm not sure if my tarantula is a boy or girl, but I think its a boy. He's such a sweetie and hasn't bitten anyone so far. This expierience made me get over my fear of spiders and I hope to have him for a long time!

Ive had my Snow Corn Snake for about 1 1/2 Years. He's the friendliest snake i've ever seen. He's never snapped at me or constricted or anything. He's timid and very fast, but he always slows once he gets used to me. We've had some funny moments. He went To the bathroom on me... TWICE...Lol Yea, it was messy... =) but I feed him 3 mice every week. I would recommend a Snow Corn Snake, just always feed them and just sit and talk to them every once in a while. i guess i dunno.. =) lol mine seems to like it. He's wonderful towards my friends too.

I have a pet Beardie, her name is Raphiella. She's about 5 months old and loves jumping and running all over the house. Ralphy is my 2nd lizard, I lost my first male over the summer. She, you could say, is a vegetarian. She rarely ever eats crickets or super worms.

I had a rough green snake that I caught in the wild for about two weeks. She/he never attempted to bite and she enjoyed being held. I had the 12 inch long snake housed in a 20 gallon aquarium with a fake log and a rock pool. I also had a heat lamp. I never misted her cage because no one told me to-oops- but she was happy and liked to swim in the pool. The pet store told me that she was a racer and to feed her pinkies. We bought a pinkie and put in her cage and the snake would not eat the pinkie. Instead, it curled up with it and kept in warm, we ended up releasing both together. A few years after I had that snake, I came across another RGS, which was highly agressive and had to be promptly released.
