My Albino Red Rat Snake,Alby, has been healthy for 2 weeks, which is as long as I've had him. We lost him in our house for a week and we found him only to be introduced by Cleo, the baby Columbian Red-Tail Boa. Alby was really mad when we found him, but I held him and thought he'd be okay. Today however, when I picked him up, he had a dent that went from one side of his body to under him and it was caved half-way in. He was also harder than usual. This started freaking me outl I thought it was of dehydration, but Alby had plenty of water and was resting in it for an hour yesterday AND today. Please tell me what's wrong with my little Alby.

    @Above,
    I forgot to mention that he was hurt AFTER he was found, I don't know how. Like, when I found him, perfect condition, day later, bump.

Hi I just got my baby albino yesterday and was just wondering that when I try to get him out he keeps striking should I still pick him out after he has done this to tame him down,?

    Yes, I have one myself and he got out and was lost for a week. We found him behind the file cabinet right after we got a new Columbian Redtail Boa, anyways. My snake was striking and shaking his tail like a Rattle Snake. I was scared, but they have no teeth and are really small when babies. I tamed mine pretty quick. If he continues doing this, pick him up with a paper towel to tame him more efficiently. Hope you enjoy you Albino Red Rat Snake! :)

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'm getting my first pet snake and it is a snow corn snake. He is about two months old and he is 16 inches long. I already decided a name for him, Royalty,and he is very sweet.

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.
