I've tried to post 4-5 times today, this DAMN server keeps choking & sputtering; won't even load pages! Pathetic! I tried other websites, many. They load just fine. Maintenance needed on the site? Too many files? Webmaster - this is your cue...

Thanks for your reply. I hope that my writing tone does not come across as condescending. My candor & directness are sometimes misinterpreted.

There is no right or wrong for terrarium setup design. Basic needs must be met, but beyond that, decorating is entirely up to the individual, and everyone has a different viewpoint and preference of colors & design.

I focus on one or two snakes to which I can devote time and exercise. The allure of a Collection is understood, but I have never had the money to consider more than two. (I contract the “I Want That Snake!” virus, too. The last time involved a Spotted Python.)

When keeping any animal (a huge commitment almost as large as raising a child) when preparing its living quarters, I ask myself these questions:

1. Would I be happy with this much proportional space?
2. Would I be happy with this diet, or would I want more variety.
3. Would I be happy with this much solitude and lack of interaction or novelty?

I prepare my vivariums accordingly, maximizing space & function. The bonus is that I end up with a very decorative showcase (like an aquarium) that I can use to decorate the home in rooms, hallways or the main entryway.

Since I’ve been creating Naturalistic terrarium setups for decades, mine are Zoo quality, or better. I’m very proud of them and their Snap-together design for ease of cleaning.

Best wishes for success & fun with your Corn snake. I will try to post photos of my Russian Rat & Corn snakes as I get more photos ready.
