What does it mean when a snake makes a sneezing sound? Does it mean they are hissing and angry? My snake Pinky always makes sounds like that and I don't know what it means.

    I do not know..........

    Well it depends. Sometimes their angry and they try striking your hand and they make a sort of sneezing sound. Sometimes it's just plain sneezing. If you could send some sort of video somewhere sometime,maybe I could figure it out. BTW I think the name Pinky is really cute,since they eat Pinky mice and things ;)

    If it's sneezing often, then it can be down to respiratory problems, you need to check the humidity of your setup, because you may be giving him a cold, if he continues, or he looks like there's any discharge from his nose mouth or eyes, then you need to get him checked out by a vet.

I've never thought that I would have a snake in my house as a pet. But I've had my snake for 2 days lol and I love it! My 1st one! Still learning on how to care for it and all, haven't touched it yet. Baby steps! If anyone can give me any pointers on things I shoul do, how to pick it up without him biting me. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

I found my snow corn snake while visting a mate at night. I almost dismissed it as a stick, I passed it, then walked back and it made a break for it! I caught the little bugger and took it home. The wife and I both fell in love with it straight away (me a little more!). We own lizards (beardies) 5 of them, but never a snake. We've done lots of reading up on them but are still not 100% confident! Think it's a boy and he's never warm! He was 10" long so still young, but after 2 day's he ate 2 small pinkies so I know he is happy enough. Hasn't got his own viv yet but he's in a large rodent tank inside a LARGE viv (controlled heat & light & separate thermometer). Waiting for his viv to be built! Any advise would be greatly apprecated. thanks

    This may seem rude but i was just wondering when you posted this and where you found it. I know it sounds odd and probably rude. I just lost my snow corn snake earlier this month he's about the same length you discribed. I've been googling and looking on different sites trying to figure out where he might be. I really hope you don't think me rude I'm just desparate to find him. If you could reply even if I'm completely mistaken(which I probably am) that would be absolutely amazing. My email is Ryder_azazel@hotmail.com please and thank you.

    I can remember when my corn snake was a baby now she's huge! She can eat 2 big mice now! :D

    could be yours, snow corns are extremely rare to find in the wild. it most likely is a captive escaped.

I have a RTB and as my second reptile she is amazing! My first rep was an iguana and while he was cool he unfortunately passed away from old age. Although scratch is my first RTB, and RTBS aren't recommended for first timers, I found with plenty of love, patience, and the all knowing interwebs it has been more than manageable. I knew I was on the right track when the second day I had her, I fed her and she ate immediately. That's not to say she didn't give me a kiss to get to know me lol. But one of the best things about snakes is that if they bite you its because you were doing something stupid. She's currently 7 and I can't wait for many more happy years with her.

Hey ya'll!! I need some advice, my husband is getting me 2 corns (male & female). I have wanted one from the time I handled a snake.. They are in the same tank (50g) and I have done my home work, and they have bred before. I know that it's a lot of responsibility maintaining the female before/during/after breeding and then you have the little ones to tend to.. Honestly since they will be my first snakes I don't plan on breeding them any time soon to avoid any injuries.. I will only have the one 50g tank to keep them in and I was wondering if I could separate them until the mating seasons over then put them back together or just separate them all together? Maybe get a comfy clear tub for one until I can get another tank. Also, I know that the female will lay her eggs fertilized or not and I was wanting to know if I should just treat her as if she's pregnant and just make a her a nesting box..

I plan on breeding them but I just want to get used to them and have some experience under my belt before hand :)

    Breeding corn snakes is quite competitive and there are many out there who do this. If you think you are going to make money breeding, you might clearly be very dissapointed and wind up with the two adults and about 25 - 30 babies. You might want to just keep the two for sometime and wait and make the breeding decision later. However, I did find breeding and it pretty much tells a person what to do.
  • Jessica - 2011-10-28
    When I do plan on breeding them I'm only breeding them once, someone is already interested in the babies.. I don't plan on breeding every year, that's just too much for me.

I recently acquired an albino corn snake for my classroom. I am trying to use frozen "pinkies". Last week went fine and she ate the pinkie with no problems after thawing it first. This week she doesn't seem interested. Any advice would be appreciated.

    In Aug. my albino cornsnake Bastian will be 20 years old. He is a wonderful pet. He loves to be held (or at least doesn't seem to mind it) He seems to recognize me by my smell, when I hold him, he gets very very still. When anyone else holds him he is constantly moving. When I got Bastian he was the same size as a new pencil, now he is 5 1/2 feet long. He is having a hard time holding weight now so he is pretty thin when he used to be much hardier. When I got Bastian I fed him pinkies twice a week for about the first six to eight months. Might have been a little too long but I was afraid a live mouse would bite him. To feed him the pinkies I would take the pinkie out of the freezer and put it into a cup of warm water until the pinkie was no longer cold inside, then I would take the pinkie from the water and gently squeeze the water from it and dry it off, then I would use a pair of tweezers to hold the pinkie and wiggle it in front of Bastian until he struck. If I fed him more than twice a week he would just throw it back up undigested. I don't know if all that I did was correct, but I don't know anyone else with a twenty year old cornsnake so it couldn't be all wrong.

    "corn snakes and other snakes always eat every other day.good luck whith your albino corn snake."
  • vincent - 2010-05-30
    Make sure that the pinkie is warm, you can do that by getting some hot water and holding the pinkie in the water till its warm. I wouldn't let it get too hot though.
  • chelsea - 2010-07-25
    Hi, i have the same animal, my snake wouldn't eat for almost three weeks and I took him to the pet shop and he was just about to shed. They can actually go for about a month or two without eating which of course they would probably be hungry but they can survive. If your snake doesn't eat within a month and a few weeks I would take him/her in, to check to be sure everything is going well. But for now don't worry he/she is fine. :) Give him/her time. Also make sure the pinkie is completely un- frozen that could really hurt them. Make sure once you thaw it, it is about human temperature.
  • Nicole - 2010-09-30
    Those two guys saying corns should eat every second day are mistaken. A very young snake should eat twice a week, while the older ones only need appropriately-sized food once a week. The only times that my snakes haven't been interested in their thawed food I found that if I warmed the mouse up a bit more with more warm water they would take it. Or maybe the snake just didn't notice the food, in which case wiggling the food around a bit so the snake sees it might help. Just make sure your fingers are out of the way so you don't get nipped accidentally.
  • sonia collins - 2010-10-22
    The snake might just be a bit frightened leave it until the next week or it could be agitated as snakes take around a week to digest food and like to be left alone around this time so next week when you feed it and it still seems hungry give it another one and as it gets bigger increase the size of the pinkies go to http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-care-for-baby-corn-snakes for better information I hope this assists you in your plight.
  • LARRY - 2010-10-25
    I have the same problem.
  • Andrew Jones - 2010-12-20
    Well I also have an albino corn snake he would not eat if he is stressed but if you put it in a container away from his home and let him calm down acre mins then drop the pinky in and he looked at it a while and finally ate it they only should eat two times a week.
  • Random person - 2011-10-22
    Some snakes may be picky like that, my snake Pinky will not eat any white mice so we started to give her black mice and she doesn't refuse so try giving her different mice.

Hi, I think I saw a a white and brown? It reminded me of an albino. It was sunning it self on a railroad tie in my mom's garden/mulch pile. There is lots of cover and chipmunks. This was in maryland in august, in a neighborhood.
