My bf has been on about getting a snake for a while now. We had our eye on a corn snake & were thinking of buying one next weekend.Well it turns out that my friend no longer wants her corn snake because she's only just found out that it will need to be fed adult mice (although she doesn't mind feeding it pinkies at the minute!) Anyway, she's only had him about 2 months & is still quite small, when she brought him she told the guy she wanted to buy a vivarium that will last him even when he's fully grown, it's 3ft long (not sure of the the height & depth) will that be big enough for a fully grown corn snake? She said we can have him for a small amount as she knows we'll look after him.We've read alot of books & visited the local reptile centre, but just wanted advice from anyone with any experience with corn snakes - i want to know what we're getting ourselves into if we end up taking him in!<br><br>
Thank you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Not to be a pooperhead, but I don't think snakes is captivity are particularly happy. And yeah, you have to feed them the "appropriate" food. Is your bf set on a snake?

If the snakes already in captivity it can't be released, so someone needs to take care of it.<br><br><br><br>
I always start with melissa kaplan's pages for reptile carehttp://<a href="http://www.anapsid.org/corn.html" target="_blank">www.anapsid.org/corn.html</a>
