WOW, some of you have some very fat corns!!!

Ashley just lost her 18 yr normal, 6 foot, corn last month to old age.

Neither. I got her from a local herp buddy, who rescued her from his vet's office... apparently the original owner dropped her off for treatment, and decided to abandon her there. I was at his house a few months later, actually to pick up a Ball Python, and he said "You wanna free corn snake?" He knew I was into corns (he's not really), so figured I couldn't say no!

And the story continues: She actually escaped from a Rubbermaid container on the way home, and ended up living in the dashboard of my car for 3 weeks... hence the name change to Dash. Amazingly she survived the harsh winter weather, and finally emerged on her own - fat as ever, LOL.

She'll be proud to know she's your fattest corn sighting... hehe. I'm glad I have her too, and promise she is in great hands now! She's actually lost a little weight, as you might notice when comparing my earlier photo w/ the last two I posted.

Haha, nice. I guess she just needed some time away from humans.
Thats messed up that the owner left her at the vet, though. Poor little snake. At least It's in good hands now!

Yeah, she actually seemed pretty content in there... I finally spotted her after about 2 weeks, and tried for DAYS to get her out. But she had to take her sweet time!

Hard to believe somebody could abandon a pet, but I guess some people don't care about them like we do.

New Topic: Longness?

Just had a different question. I just didnt want to start another thread.
So tell me, How long is your longest corn?
I figured a good amout of people posted their older corns. Now lets talk about how long they got.

(Thoes of you who havent posted about the age, you can still do so, its still interesting )
