I went to see the Corn. He was in excellent shape. Clean and healthy. I have him home and he is in the spare room as it's the warmest (75 degrees). The prev owner has the heat pad in the center of the tank so I put the hide (large hide but ok for it's 20gal long tank) 1/2 over the heat pad, and 1/2 over the cooler end. He did come out of the hide last night to explore -- very active. Now yesterday was his day to eat so I opted to take him now vs letting him eat his "live" food 1st. I figured that I would have better ods in getting him to eat f/t if he was hungry. He eats 2 small white mice every week and 1/2. I don't get my frozens delivered till next Tues so it will be close to 3 weeks between feeding. He should be very hungry.. OK-- question... I see many say to feed outside his enclosre. I have a 4 qt plastic tub that I can use for feeding but I've heard you aren't supposed to bother a snake after he eats or he'll regurgitate. How do you get him back ino his enclosure then? Aso -- prev owner uses that black repti-sand. I heard that it's not good as it can get into a snakes nose and possible respiratory sys. I plan on switching to aspen after a few weeks. I just want him to get settled before I make too many changes -- ie 1st feeding from live to f/t, then his sustrate.
