    Aspen Bedding-Ant infestation

    Never had this happen before on an animal! About a week ago I was walking by my corn's cage and saw a trail of sugar ants coming out of the cage. I thought, oh no, the snake died (he hides 90% of the time) so I took the cage outside and striped it down. Corn snake was fine and a little peeved at...

    New litter, old sleeping with?

    Should I be concerned that the older siblings are in the hideaway with the two day old pinkies? During the day momma keeps them all out, but come sleeping time they all pile together. No sign of the older ones nursing mamma, and she's doing well (walnuts are her favorite treat), and all the...

    grouchy cause wants to hibernate?

    I went to a snake show to get a ball python yesterday-while I was there I talked to the breeder I got my newly nasty corn from. When I told him about it suddenly getting grouchy, he said it may be because it wants to hibernate because the temperatures have dropped. I hadn't considered that! He...

    Normal behavior change?

    So I thought my little okeetee (4 months old) had lost his little mind.... up until yesterday, he'd never struck at me in the 6 weeks I've had him. He'd just finished his second molt (!!!) since I've had him, so I knew he was hungry. But before, even when hungry, he never went after me. After...
