My ball python, Sue Ellen, is about 8 or 9 months old. She eats well, is active and appears very healthy. But a couple of weeks ago we noticed her left eye looked cloudy. We thought she may have scratched it in her habitat because she often stands on her tail trying to get out, then eventually falls back into her log and other rough items that could have scratched her eye. Now it even appears to be swelling and is much bigger than her good eye. Does this indicate an infection, or does it indicate that there is an eye cap stuck there that did not shed properly? I am very concerned about this and wonder what I should do.

    It sounds to me like she may have scratched her eye, and it is infected.

I have a ball python that is under a year old. When she came to us she was eating live, I have been trying to get her to eat frozen and it's been very difficult. I've managed to get her to eat one in the last 4 months. She is a small snake but the other day I noticed she looks bloated, her head and the neck just behind her head is normal but then she goes large and I can't believe she is growing due to the fact she hasn't eaten anything.I was going to just go back to feeding her live I feel so bad she hasn't eaten. How long can one go without eating before they actually starve? And does anyone have any idea what could cause what looks to be bloating in her? Robbin Winn Powers is my Facebook if any one could offer any advice and could pm me on Facebook I'd be very thankful.

    These snakes can go for about 6 months without eating, so that's not a big worry, but the bloating is a concern. She could be constipated, which can be very serious if not taken care of. Soaking her in warm water may help, but if she doesn't look better soon a trip to a veterinarian will be needed.

I have a baby ball python his name is tilly. Last night my boyfriend was holding him, watching tv, and fell asleep. I was sitting on the chair and all of a sudden didnt see him. I leaned to see if he was over me and he wasnt. I guess he was under the chair. And the chair pinched about a little bit above his butt. We were in the vet for 3 hours last night, they said they would have to do xrays but it doesnt freel broke. I can afford the xrays so they gave us medicine to give him, has this happened to anyone else? Will he be okay? :(

I just purchased a vivexotic vx36 vivarium as an up grade for my royal and the warm side is 90f but the cool side is 70f any tips on how to get it up to 80f. i use a heat mat on the warm side with a red 100w bulb. I live in scotland so its always cold. Had him in a exo terra 24x18x18 tank before and had no problem with temperatures

    You could look into getting a hood lamp that covers the cool side and puts off litle heat.
  • Robsnake - 2013-10-07
    A heat lamp would be best that's what I use. A good reptile shop should be able to advise. Further you would also need a basket to stop your snake burning itself.
  • stevo_d - 2013-11-10
    Problem solved I moved the heat lamp (with a guard) over a few inches and temperatures are now 88f to 95f on warm side and 81f to 85f on cool side. I also got a ceramic heat bulb which is awesome for life length and keeps temperatures up at night when daylight is not on. Thanks for advice guys, also must say wooden vivariums are 10 times better for holding humidity than glass tanks thor (snakes name) loves it.

Hi, I REALLY want a corn snake, but I can't seem to get over a tiny fear. I am afraid that it will bite me... would it? I mean, my brother has one, and it seems so nice. But I'm afraid that if I get one, it will be mean and bite me. Has anyone ever had this fear? Will a corn snake bite me, and if it does, will it hurt?

    Corn snakes are considered to be one of the most docile snakes you can own, it all depends on how you raise them though. I have owned 2 for 3 years and never been bitten. A key thing to remember though is to feed them in a different tank that what you normally keep them in, this is so they don't associate their tank with food.
  • JC - 2011-02-08
    No reason to be scared. I've only been bitten three times and that wuz when it was a hatchling and I wuz actually the one who provoked it....

    24 yrs of cornsnake care under my belt. Never have they eaten each other. always had multiples in the same cage. even sometimes had a very small one with a large one! I very often feed them in the cage they are in unless housed with another, then i will take one out. you do not have to do anything special for them to mate. if there is a male and a female in the same cage, when they are old enough you will get eggs! ( just incubated and hatched 12 very healthy baby corns) T

    I have an adult that I got when he was 3 years old. Never bit me. I just got a baby born this July who hasn't yet but his sister bit me. Seriously that small didn't feel even as bad as a mosquito bite. No one likes to get bit by anything but really not that bad and cornsnakes tame very easy. That's why they are the perfect beginner snake :)

My ball python is named Monty, I've had him almost two years and he was 4 months old when I got him. He's grown quite a bit and I have him in a 25 gallon tank and will be upgrading soon. But my question is he has been very active lately, way more than usual and he has been laying around different spots in his tank other than under his tree trunk. Should I be worried that something is wrong with him he seems fine just very active off and on all day and night?
