Good advice from both Tim, and Doug. I would just add that the reason someone suggested offering a pinky is, that sometimes a pinky will entice a snake to eat that has been refusing meals. Once the snake is eating pinkies consistently, then you can up the size to fuzzies, then hoppers, and larger mice. I know many people are dead against feeding live, but a live pinky many times will do the trick. The snake probably is stressed from being moved, then handled too often, too fast, and having to watch re-runs. Just kidding about the re-runs, but you get the picture I hope. Good luck, get The CornSnake Manual!

Disclaimer: I do keep several snakes in pairs, and some in groups. However I realize that things can go wrong, and I have to keep a close eye on those groups, to be sure they are not being adversely affected by these living conditions. Also if one happens to eat it's cagemate, it is 100% my fault, and I know the risks in advance!

What's wrong with using CAUTION?!?!?!
