>>I have an opportunity to get a 1 year old Corn snake from a neighboring town owner. I look at this as a sweet deal as she only wants $100 for the whole set-up. The Corn is feeding on live though. Is it hard to get a yearling to change from live to frozen? Or, should I just go ahead and get a hatchling and start off from the beginning with frozen. Of course, when I say frozen, I mean pre-killed. Not that I would take a mouse out of the freezer and give it directly to the snake..
>>
>>Thoughts? I have to move quick as this snake will probably go very soon..


Shouldn't be a problem..like Aaron said an established feeder should switch over readily. Get the snake and if by chance you have trouble we can offer suggestions and experiences with switching snakes over from live to frozen. Usually simple... offer prey item, watch snake eat....lol
