Hi all,
I'm new to this site. Actually, new to posting. I've been reading up all I can since capturing a really fat CA King a couple of months ago after she wondered into my yard. She was very docile for a wild snake. My plan was to move her to a safer location with a stream and away from the neighborhood. Before I could do that, however, she left me 6 gifts! That explained why she was so fat. I thought she had ate another snake... So after doing some research on this site, I went down to the local reptile dealer and purchased the needed under tank heater, and thermostat control, vermiculite, etc. Well, now I have 4 hatch-lings and two to go... My question is, I know they will not eat until their first shed. I am just keeping the snakes in individual containers and there is no rocks or anything rough for them to rub against. My Corn snake uses rocks to shed properly. Do I need to put something in the individual containers? Thanks for your responses and sorry so long winded! I owe this site a great big thank you for giving me the knowledge and confidence to hatch these little beauties!
