For anyone wondering how to feed an RGS, I have a couple of suggestions. Whenever it comes to feeding time with my snake, I make sure to put about 2 dozen smallish crickets directly in the tank with him. I never try to hand feed him because RGS' tend to be quite timid and high strung. By putting plenty of crickets in the tank the snake can eat at their leisure. Another trick I have learned about feeding is to sometimes give them meal worms. These are small and easy for an RGS to swallow since their necks are so slender. Make sure to mist your tank a few times daily for humidity and water. These snakes do not always like to drink water from a bowl. I know that mine does not. By misting the tank the snake can drink off leaves or vines in the tank. The added moisture in the tank will also help your snake shed when the time comes. Do not let your tank become too moist because these snakes can get skin disorders and respiratory illnesses easily and do not often recover from them.

I have a ball python and he allways gets out and he gets found in the strangest places. I think snakes are the best pet you can get because it teaches you love, compassion, and skills for other pets as well. Ball pythons are GREAT beginner pets.

I have had my RGS for about 2 1/2 months. His name is Jeremy. The first RGS that I had died the day after I got her home. The pet center gave me a new one a few weeks later. I have never seen him eat, and he has not shed at all since I've had him. He likes to be held but only if my hands are warm and tends not to like anyone else holding him. I have him housed in a 29 gallon high terrarium. There are plenty of branches and vines for him to climb. Most of the time he is basking or hidden inside his enclosure. Along with Jeremy, I have a long-tailed grass skink housed with him.

I own four morp corns. They make wonderful pets for the first time snake owner. They are one of the most docile snakes. You must keep in mind that these are animals and have bad days like we all do. They may strike if hungry or scared or if the animal isn't used to being handled. Snakes can strike when you first reach in to remove them from their home. It is best to use a glove or snake hook to remove them. Always, Always research animals before buying, so you know and understand the needs of the animal. Some animals need special lighting or food that costs more than other species. Good luck with your animal.

I got a albino cornsnake on my birthday. I just love him, I would die if I didn't have him. One day I took him to school. After that all my friends wanted one. We bought him a hut. He is in it all the time. We know when Slither is hungry, he sticks his head out of his hut. I don't know if he is a he/she. I call him a he. Slither is still just a baby. When I hold him he curls up in my hand. Slither is the best pet I ever had.

i have 2 water snakes and had them for 4 months now and they have been doing well. they like to hunt and eat live fish so i added live guppies (male and female) so i dont have to worry about feeding time. guppies grow and reproduce quite fast. i also feed them live worms.

I just got my albino corn snake and he is so friendly. He/she likes to climb up my shirt and perch on my sholder. He is just a baby but he is so much fun. I recommend this friendly snake to anyone!

I own 3 honduran milk snakes, 2 tangerines (male and female), and a female tri-color. I bought the hondurans because I like the bright colors and I wanted a snake that was going to get 5 to 7 ft. My females are 2 yrs old and 5 ft long and as round as a ping pong ball, my male is the same age and only 40 inches. Males are smaller than females. I have never been bit or musked. they are great eaters and mine love to be handled. All hondurans are very brightly colored when they are young but darken as they get older. I think mine are prettier now since they have darkened.
