maybe getting a corn snake
My sister and her hubby breed snakes, and last saturday, a clutch of 5 baby corns hatched. The first one to hatch has a kink in her tail, she was pretty big when she hatched, so the reptile store won't buy her. She is the one that I want. I like her coloring the best. They are all creamsicle, but they all have slightly different coloring. 1 has the most red, she's pretty. I have a name picked out for her, but I'm not saying it yet, because its still a maybe. I have to get permission from my mom, first.
I bought a book on corns, and I have been doing plenty of research. I still haven't decided whether I want to feed f/t or live, I've been weighing the pros and cons of both. I think ultimately it will depend on whether I can deal with handling a dead mouse long enough to thaw it and everything, I get pretty squeamish about dead things... My BIL feeds live, so thats all that I'm used to. I like the idea of frozen better, because its safer for the snake, though. I've been bitten by mice, and I know how bad it can hurt. I'm leaning towards frozen, but again, I want to be able to feed my snake, and not get all freaked out because I have to touch a dead mouse...
Anyways, I just wanted to share, I'm excited about everything... I can't wait to get the ok from my mom, and then be able to bring home my little baby!
