Hi again, that ribbon snake i found turned out to be a girl and she had babies,roughly 10, and i think you dont feed them the first 2 days and then you start them on cut up night crawlers the you go to full or half crawlers then to fish then to frogs or mice, is this correct and how can i get them to eat mice?

    It will be some time before they can safely consume mice. Crickets, worms and even some guppies in the water will do they well for quite awhile.

Hey yall! I used to have a milksnake. We found it in my backyard and I picked it up because i knew it wasn't venemous. Then I went inside and put it in a glass jar (after I got through playing with it of course). I put it in my room and got it something to eat. Then my little brother was being stupid, he put alchohol in its jar and it died. It is still in my room in that exact jar. I know that is kinda creepie, but I think it is awesome.

I've had my snow corn snake for about two months now. He's about twelve inches, and he's extremely tame. I named him Alexi (after the lead guitarist and vocalist in Children of Bodom), and I quickly fell in love with my snake. The only problem is that since I've had him, he has refused to eat and he takes no interest at all in any food we try to feed him.

    Even though they say snakes are color blind, my snow corn refuses to eat black mice. She also will not eat rat pups. Try a white mouse, if that fails try a brown mouse, if that fails try a rat pup.

    And if none of the above work then stick with pinkies and hothead them, in other words put them in a plastic container with boiling water in and leave for a couple of minutes. Throw them in and leave your snake for about an hour, if it hasn't eaten then it could be that the heat is too high or low. Or it's just a weak corn snake. A lot of young corn snakes die due to starvation. They lack the ability or knowledge to understand what food is or have trouble working out how to fit the food in its mouth. Mine did this for about 3 weeks before I nearly gave up and it finally ate. 3 times since now. Having 2 pinkies each time. Shedding time soon.

Hi, I caught an eastern garter snake in my backyard a a few days ago. It is sort of small, about 2.5 feet, and eats 1 frog every day. The day I cought it was the first day of spring. Just wondering, where would a garter snake be during the, and could I keep it in a 29 gallon tank with another garter and a water snake? Also, how do you remove super glue from your skin?

    They should do fine. Check the snake closely for mites before adding to your tank. I would get a longer tank as well.

At Gene RE: is it gonna harm your snake to swallow mice backwards. My snake has done that I don't think so, because no harm has come to my snake while feeding him, but the best advice is to get a snake vet to answer
