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.
I bought an albino corn snake 6 weeks ago and she won't eat, I was wondering can any one tell me why please.
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.

We have had an albino corn snake since April of this year and LOVE him. He has been the best pet. I just wish I had discovered snakes as pets before I discovered dogs and cats. Very easy to care for. Our albino is very docile, loves to be held, has never coiled or offered to strike, has never hissed. We feed him in a separate plastic container so that he does not associate our hand coming into his home as offering food. In late May, we got a ghost corn snake. We keep her in a separate home than our albino, though they are about the same size (now about 18 inches). She is not as friendly as our albino, though she still has not offered to strike. She does become somewhat apprehensive when you try to pick her up and she does get in the striking position sometimes. She is not as comfortable being held and when in her home, she hides most of the time, while our albino loves lying in his tree or on the sand. We bought them at different stores so I imagine they were handled differently in the stores and that is why they are so different now. Or I guess they could just have different temperaments like people do!
I have had Pinky for more than seven years now. He is almost 7 ft. long so he is a couple years older and a couple feet longer than the average Snow Corn Snake. I think it is due to the fact that I keep him active. I let him outside to play in the trees and slither along the ground. He is so laid back that I have yet to see him take off at more than a turtle crawl. Also, I make plans to have him visit the serpentarium for a couple months during the spring season so he can meet the lady snakes. We visit the libraries in our county for special events such as today we will be going to a grand opening for the new library branch on the island. This keeps him people friendly. He loves people and water. Oh and he loves chicken! I have fed mice and rats to Pinky for years; sometimes 2 large rats at a feeding. A month or so ago I was cleaning some chicken breasts for a meal and I had Pinky around my neck. Next thing I know, he is munching on a piece. So, I have made his diet staple chicken breast. It works great for both of us. He gets frisky and tries to get out of his cage now and then. But I recognize that he loves attention and just wants to hang out with us, his family. Love is always the key to a good pet, regardless of what kind of pet you have.
