Okay, now if your python is a little touchy then the best thing you could do is hold the snake, regular handling will tame the snake. now if your afraid of being bit then one of the first things i would do is take a old rag (small) and rub up and down your arm and throw it in the tank, this will get the snake use to your scent. after doing this place your hand in the tank, do not move it, the snake will go to your hand but will not likely bite you, it will get very close and possible climb on you, if it decides to do this then let it. but do not allow the snake around your face, this is not a good habit for a snake that will grow to be over 18 feet in length.

anyone no how to keep garter snakes warm, outside in the winter? i got 9 garter's and i gotta keep em outside this winter. any suggestions?

what u wanna do first is get a 5-10 gallon tank. if the baby corn snake is under a year then keep it in a 5-10 gallon tank. i have 2 corn snakes and they were babie's 2 years ag o and i kept them in a 10 gallon tank. if your worried thats 2 small then u can always get a bigger one in the future. if the corn snake is older than 1, i suggest using a 10-25 gallon cage.

tyler, how about a heater???? or a few artificial sun lamps, and a heating pad?? maybe you can keep them in the garage so they dont have to be exposed to the drafts ????

and to kaitee ok, well, if you dont want to have to feed it a live animal,[mouse] then dont get a snake.......you could get a garter snake, but then you would have to suffer from the horrible odor the can make on your sons hands ...believe me its hard to wash off. lol and they live in a cage you put them in. how about you buy him another reptile!!! like a lizard? or a tortiouse. thier kinda low maintenance! provide a warm home, food, shelter, and water. they dont really call for much social handling, but sulcuta turtles, have been known to come when thier called, if they are handled enough. they eat lettuce, and when kept in captivity, they dont need to hibernate. maybe you should just get your son a dog. harder to care for, but cuter, and its a pet the whole family can enjoy.

Hello, Nora is the only person who has mentioned any thing that matters. Snakes as with any reptile are not the pet for a person who has no experiance. They are not as easy as you may think! They do need special care, not any one can provide what they need. Sure I can get a snake and throw it in a tank with a heat light. Feed it a couple times a month but is it the proper way to care for it. NO! IT IS NOT!!! Please before you get a snake do a lot of resurch. Take the advice of people who know what they are talking about. Dont just think the type of snake is the only thing to consiter, there is so much more. Please read Nora's info he knows what he is talking about. Snakes are not cute cuttly animals, but they do deserve the same care as the cute cuttly one.

i have had several snakes myself, at the moment i have a 1yr old, 3.5 foot Ball Python.. snakes are quite cool but it depends on the person, they are high maintenence! 1) they need diquate lighting and heat, thus you need a florescent lamp, a heat lamp, and a heat rock or pad. 2) they need to have an adequate food supply, some prefer live some prefer dead, methods of feeding can be teedious. 3) small snakes are more likely to be aggressive then larger breeds, pythons and boas are friendly but require larger food and living space. 4) snakes live in glass tanks like fish tanks called terrariums, anything under 4 feet can live in a 15 gallon tank. 5) cleanliness: the water needs to be fresh everyday, the bark (if thats what you choose) needs to be changed frequantly to avoid the snake getting mites (not harmful to humans, just grose), and poop needs to be taken out asap!
hmm, i suppose thats all i can think of at the moment, if you have any more questions email me at [email protected]

Go talk to someone at a pet store. They'll be able to help you better than a bunch of schmucks on a Baby Crowd forum.
