Corn SnakesHabitat & Handling

Petmania Scaleless Corn SnakeWhere Corn Snakes Like to Live?

Corn Snakes should be housed in a vivarium with a secure top as they make excellent escape artists. Allow a minimum of 1 square foot to each foot long your snake is. A hide box should also be provided, a branch for climbing and resting and a rock or log for basking, or lying around. With corn snakes no special lighting is required, and they do not require a specific humidity level, but may appreciate a light misting of their vivarium to aid them during the shedding process. A heat mat will be needed.

Handling

Corn Snake do not wrap snugly around your arm like other snakes, they tend to pick a direction and go for it. Though they are relatively small in body mass, they are quite strong. Always support the body and give free rein to the head. If the head starts going somewhere you don't want it to go, gently guide it into another direction. Many snakes are nervous when introduced into a new situation with new people. Give them a couple of days to settle down before letting new people handle them.
