    Cornsake not growing?

    Are you feeding live or frozen. I owned snakes for 30 years and have never seen a "feeding by weight" chart. I see no reason why you couldn't feed him more than one pinkie at a time. Just wait for the first one to go down, give him a couple of minutes and give him another. I have done this with...

    Bioactive anole vivarium

    I make my lids out of plywood. That should support the weight of most cats unless you have a tiger or something big.

    You can build a top easier and cheaper and customize it any way you want.

    Trans Pecos Rat Snake question

    I just got a young (11") trans pecos at a show last week. I went to feed him for the first time last night with a live pinkie. He went right after it, picked it right up, and swallowed it without constricting it first. Is it possible he was trained on frozen and never needed to constrict. Dinner...

    When can I handle my corn?

    With snakes, I always give them 2 days in their new home before I try to handle or feed. Even if I am taking a snake out of the cage to clean it, I still give them 2 days. Snakes stress easily and are sometime best left alone. I would give her a few days to get used to her surroundings. Also...
