One of my Corn Snakes has a kink in her tail so I called her 'KINK'

Anyways as she is growing and getting bigger I can hardly notice it or feel it...

Can they out grow a kink or will it always there? She was hatched with it, back in September and is a creamcicle

As far as I know it will always be there.

Usually a result of inbreeding (can be outbrew through hets, of course). Doesn't impair their total cuteness tho :]

Most likely a birth defect. I had a few specimens last year from 2 different clutches that were born with kinks. It's believed that the malformities were because of too high of temps in the last stages of incubation, causing the defects. Mark IsBell - GONE SNAKEE!
