Here's some pictures of Cheerios latest feed, this goes with this
but I didn't want anyone to get mad at me so I'll put them here.
WARNING:Snake EATING you have been WARNED
This is for new snake owners wondering how to feed their snake,I have warned you please do not yell at me because of the pictures.
Last chance turn back now
If is best to feed corn snakes pre-killed mice.Feed according to the size of your snake.Before feeding thaw and warm the mouse.As you can see in the back of this picture,I thaw my mice on tile pieces,under the heat lamp,although this may take longer than using water,my snake likes then dry and using this method heats them up to body temperature.
I feed my snake in a plastic shoe box lined with paper towel or TP,for easy clean up
The box is the perfect size
Dangle the mouse infront of your snake, you may also want to drag it along so the snake will with it is still alive.Be sure the mouse is warm so they will be more attracted to it and will not become chilled from eatting a cold mouse
Once the snake strikes the mouse you may need to tug on the mouse a bit to encourage the snake to begin constricting and/or swallowing depending on the snake.I sometimes need to do this for my snake to begin swallowing
It is best to dangle the mouse by the tail so the snake will swallow head first
I use a heat lamp to keep her warm in the winter and summer (A/C is on)
Once the snake has swallowed the mouse she will make an 's' with her body pushing the mouse farther down.
After the snake has finished eating,she should be gently placed back in her tank, with a fresh bowl of water(great opportunity to see your snake drinking).You should not disturbed your snake for at least 48 hours after feeding.
If you have anything to add please feel free to.
