I respect your points, except comparing these animals to a 12 year old boy. There are no social morals in the animal kingdom. Size, not age, determines when a corn snake of either gender is ready to breed. If you don't brumate the first two years and power feed, you can have some corns at large adult size in two years. I don't recommend it, just pointing it out/being an Internet stickler.
