I wrote back on 2-12 about Maize my new white corn snake. He is eating frozen (thawed) pinkies. I have been feeding him twice a week and he really seems to be thriving. He doesn't mind to be handled. He is actually shedding right now and doesn't seem to be bothered by it at all. Just wanted to tell all if you think your snake won't eat frozen, be patient and make sure the pinkie is good and warm. So far it has worked for me.

I just aquired an albino corn snake that I named Maize Bianco. I think it is male (ha ha) I have always loved snakes and volunteer at the local zoo and handle many tropical snakes. So far he has been great. He definitely prefers live food to frozen. He is a good eater and seems to be very content. I think they make great pets. Hats off to snake lovers!!! Any comments for a new snake owner would be greatly appreciated.

I just got a baby albino snake for Christmas (already love it!) and I have a question. I read here that the snake will not do well in bright lighting, but that is the bulb the store gave me. My snake has a log 'house' that it can hide under. Is this fine? or should I switch out the light? Also, as of now I have the light positioned on the side of the tank (approx 30 gal). Should I have it further away? I also have a red light and was planning on using that at night because my house can get pretty cold. Any info would be nice.

Hey Everybody, I just bought an Albino CornSnake and I luv her. I think it's a her,lol. But, um yes, I bought her 12-21-08 at 8:30pm. This is my 1st time taking care of a snake, if anybody has good tips, please help me out. By introduction: Her Name is Fyre (hint: fire spelled differently) and she's great already. Hopefully I will be a great pet owner.

I have had my albino corn snake for a year and a month now and he behaves very well. Thankfully he eats both live and dead because I made a move to NC where none of the nearby stores have live. They are great to start out with before getting real big snakes. Mine is almost 2 ft already and I feed him once every 7 days, alternating between fuzzies and hoppers.

I have an Albino corn snake named Tango. I have had him for 6 years, he is 4 and half foot. He is real friendly because I handle him a lot. I give him two medium mice a week. He isn't over weight and is in great shape.

Feeding your snake... it may have a preferance for live or dead food, some snakes like there food to be alive and others its dead.

Snakes are the best animals. Corn snake, african rock, rosy boa, emerald tree boa, and riticulated python are the snakes which I like so much. I am Ayham, I am 11 years old, and snakes are my life.
