i was getting ready to feed my reptiles and my rosehair today and sadly, found out my cornsnake died. he was only about eight inches long. i was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of why it died. i bought it from a petco, and it ate well the first time i had to feed it. and when it shed a few weeks later, (by that time it stopped eating, i assumed it was because it was shedding) and it had problems shedding. i tried every thing and up until last week, the shed didnt come off. (i put moist papertowls in the cage to increase humidity, and got all but a few pieces of the shed off around its head and neck, i used a product that zoomed puts out to get it off, but it didnt work.) it wouldnt eat and when i asked the guy that sold me it whats wrong, he just told me its common for cornsnakes to stop eating for long periods of time. i knew that wasnt true. so could anyone give me a clue of what could of happened to it? and please dont start complaining about how petcos bad. i know that already. its not all stores.
