That is one drawback, storing and feeding them mice. Having a bag of 20 frozen mice in the freezer may put some off!I have had them since they were iccle so almost 4 years now and maybe 20+ years to go as they live a fair time. Fascinating, yes especially as I have no tv! They are great escapologists too and bobo has learnt how to push the glass sliding door open on the vivarium. She has escaped a few times but don't wander far. The last time she escaped it took ages to find her, had to get my lad to help. After upending the sofa, easy chairs etc, we eventually found her behind the stereo curled around the wires.TMM
The father Bob on top of the book shelf, he escaped while I was sorting the incubator out.http://imageshack.us [Links inactive - To make links active and clickable, login or click here to register]Bee
Hi Karen, glad you like them. When just hatched the babies are nearly all the same colour, a dark muddy black/brown. If you could see them up closely you would notice a slight difference in colour, especially the underside.As they mature the colourings and markings change. The pair I have are a bit dull but you can get some very beautiful coloured ones as well. Have a google for corn snake images, there are lots!IIRC the native American Indians named them corn snakes as the markings, when adult, resemble corn circles! Unfortunately the camera does not show it up well, plus its difficult to get a steady shot as they wiggle so much. Tomorrow they go to the snake shop so I don't have them for long. Bee
