Miscellaneous Corn Snake DiscussionsThis is a "none of the above" forum. All posts should still be related to cornsnakes in one form or another, but some slight off topic posting is fine.
Well a Cornsnake that is between 2-3 years old is called an adult but a snake never stops actually growing for it's entire life. It is true that they don't grow as fast when they are older but never the less they are growing no matter how small the gain. Our biggest Corn is over 5' 6" (5 1/2 feet) and over 1000 grams but he would be considered not the norm. They generally get between 3 -4 feet and 500 - 600 grams. Hope this helps.
Yes I do Nanci. Here are a couple that are over a year old. I guess I have to get some newer ones. The last picture is of one of our daughters holding him. She is 5' 3" and he is longer then she is tall. I will get a better picture with an exact measurement as well. I will use the Snake Measuring program I have. Well here is "Zuko" our freak of nature. I think he must have hatched next to a nuclear power plant or something.
As far as I know, the record still stands at an even 72" and is quite old.
With human infringement on habitat, and so called "progress" these large snakes are a thing of the past. If you have a corn over 5', my hat's off to ya!
Oh, and Jay, that's a sweet corn!
It is rare to see a large snake in the wild. The largest I saw was a black rat (I think, it was black). Up in the Dunbar region of WI in 1981. It was a thick as my arm and as long as a car. I was sitting on wooden porch steps when I heard the leaves rustling under the porch. I got quiet and watched. The head came out from under the first step and it was as big as my hand, and then the body just kept coming and coming. I was able to measure it as it went down the dirt driveway next to my car, 72 Chevy Impala, and as the head was passing the rear tire the tail was passing the front tire.
I have never seen a snake that big in the wild since.
