Hello, I have an albino corn snake I got him when he was four he is now six. Since I've had him I've only held him three times! He gets real stiff when I grad so it freaks me out therefore I don't do it often. HELP! How can I start over, what can I do?

    Hi Denisse, I think that you shouldn't freak out because he can't hurt you I don't even think he has teeth ha ha but if so they are very small. I have the same animal. You should hold him often though because if you don't its not fair for him because he is stuck in his cage. I suggest you should get an animal that fits you more. :) or hold him while you have a rag on your hand and stroke his back. Don't worry he just isn't used to being held.

My albino corn snake (Sammy) is about 4years old and 3ft long. I'm moving from the desert heat of phoenix Az to the cold and snowy Flagstaff Az, should I change the wattage of my heat lamp? I am currently using a 14w fluorescent bulb.

    Hello I live in phoenix ha ha. It's fine you probably shouldn't have to change the wattage as long as the temperature in your house is the same as Arizona. If it is cooler than maybe you can bring it up a tiny bit. You should probably go to your nearest pet shop for professional information. But I have the same snake and I moved from California and he's fine.

The scales on the top/end part of the tail of my ball python has turned a redish color almost over night. Its not crusty of nasty looking, the scales still look healthy too. Any ideas?

    Has your snake shed recently? The scales are the brightest and most colorful right after they shed. On rare occasions they will have challenges shedding the tip of the tail skin. When it does fall off it may bleed a little and then scab over. Perhaps your snake had a similar thing, but leaving the skin reddish in color.

    That's crazy.

    Sounds like scale rot, not serious but check the belly of it if it has any sort of pink tint it is definitely scale rot, if it likes to stay in the water do not mist the tank or try taking the water dish out for a night or two.

Our neighbor caught a RGS yesterday, but his girlfriend wouldn't allow him to keep it. He gave her to us, and so far, so good! She ate today, and she is healthy! Her color is vibrant, eyes clear, and no mites. We are thrilled with her. (Yes, I am sure it's a girl-- I learned how to sex snakes at camp as a teen.) Knowing nothing about her, we put her in an aquarium overnight, with a screen lid on top- the next morning, she had escaped! We found her easily enough, climbing on our aquarium stand across the room. She hasn't been aggressive AT ALL, Even my children can handle her, and my husband just loves her to pieces! We named her Escape (pronounced Eh- skah- pay).

I'm thinking about getting a rtb but I don't know what kind of cage setup would be good if anyone has any suggestions I could use some help.

    Email me with any questions you may have. I have owned a RTB for about a year now which doesn't sound like long but I am very knowledgeable. My email is Youngoutlaw100@aol.com

Hi all! Me and my boyfriend have not long getting our corn snake he has grew a lot since we got him we've named him Timmy! But the problem is (me) I just can't get over my fear that he is going to bite me I try to get him out every day but if he looks at me the wrong way I put him straight back in his tank or just leave him in his tank if I have'nt already got a hold of him. Is there any advice you can give me to help my fear? I want him to be a great family pet for us and I just want him to be happy as well!

My parents won't let me get one snake because she hates critters but I think they're fascinating.
