Husbandry and Basic CareGeneral stuff about keeping and maintaining cornsnakes in captivity.
Yes I do agree with Iria that this subject shouldnt be in this section of the forum... but I dont agree with corns not eating fish... I know for a fact that they do... well at least I think they do... I use to feed my wild caught garter snakes little feeder goldfish... and they use to gobble them up... Im not sure abuot the nutrion that will come out of fish... but I would highly suggest that you stay with small mammels... if you think that food is expensive then order some f/t over the internet... you can get pinkys for about 18cents at RodentPro.com!!!
Iris and Jr, I am looking at the top of this thread and it says Husbandry and basic care so I think that it is ok that this question is in this section.
As for Corns eating fish. I have often thought about this. I think in the wild they are oppertunistic (spell) feeders. I know that they eat lizards,rodents and even small birds. I have even seen a documentory where one was stalking a bat. So who knows. Why not fish or tadpoles.
Is there anyone out there that has studied Corns in the wild? Maybe you can shed some light on this matter.
No where have I seen written that fish is an acceptable food for a corn. Older corns feed almost exclusivly on rodents and birds etc and the ocassional lizard. I've never heard fish mentioned so I wouldn't recommend even trying.
