Corn Snake Diet & Nutrition
Corn snakes, like all other snakes, are strictly carnivorous, meaning they eat only meat of other animals. There are some other species of snakes that eat only birds eggs, but none eat vegetables at all. Corn Snakes prefer small rodents like mice and rats.
Hatchling Corn Snakes start on pink mice, one every 5-6 days and graduate up to an adult mouse every 7-14 days as they grow. Very large snakes may require 2 adult mice per feed.
Frozen food is available from your local Petmania Store. Because of its sensitive nature, it is not displayed on the shop floor, so please ask for assistance.
A bowl of fresh water must always be available at all times. It will be used for drinking and sometimes for bathing. If the snake defecates in it, the bowl must be cleaned and disinfected.
