Re: Baby Corn Won't eat

Ok cool. Thanks for the follow-up info.

You MAY need to downsize the enclosure for a while. That's pretty big for a juvenile corn. But I'd try a few more times.

It's great that you're not handling him yet, good job there. You definitely want him to be eating consistently before handling.

You'll want to space out offerings to AT LEAST 5 days apart, but 7 days would be better. Offering too often can actually stress the snake leading to more refusals.

Can you tell us a bit about how you're heating the prey? With pinkies it's actually really easy to begin cooking the prey since they're so small, but at the same time you've got to make sure it's hot enough. They also cool very quickly so you may have to reheat a few times.

I wouldn't stress yet. We'll get you there.
