if you want to get a cornsnake, i'll give you some advice.thanks alot i want to get a cornsnake but tanks are so expensive
i know i had one once but i had to get rid of it due to moving.if you want to get a cornsnake, i'll give you some advice.
1. dont buy from any petco. i bought mine there and it wouldnt eat. it died a week or two ago.
2. depending on its size, you could get a herp keeper (the "breeder style" thats long with dividers) i used that for my baby corn before it died.
3. a heat lamp may be recommended, but its really not that important. only babies and really active corn snakes need a heat source. thats what i learned anyway. everyone has there own opinion.
i hear that. lol. i just started getting herps and t's from reptile shows. i just went to hamburg in february, and im amazed at how different the animals are compared to petco's herps.i know i had one once but i had to get rid of it due to moving.
i got most of my herps that i had from reptile shows.
More morphs less price
You kept a snake without a heat source and wonder why it wouldn't eat and then died? :? It is a scientific fact that cold-blooded animals need external warmth to be able to digest anything, and to keep their immune system up. It's not a matter of opinion. :?1. dont buy from any petco. i bought mine there and it wouldnt eat. it died a week or two ago.

But in theory that is still a heat source... Just the whole room is the right temp. If the room is below 75-80 a snake CANT digest its food so it will not eat, hence why it would die. Though it is a bad idea to buy any snake from pet-co even if you heat it properly.I've kept many colubrids without a heat source....many of the, Corn Snakes included, will do just fine at room temperatures as long as they are in the 75-80F range.
Quite right. I was just pointing out what i said as a general thing... Some can take it colder and some much hotter but that is an good average.ultimately just keep it at the right temps is the solution. If your room is 75-80 then no heat source. If your keeping something more tropical like a Ball or Boa then even a 75-80 room would need added heat. its alot of common sense once you know the requirements
