Some cobras require snakes as part of their diet. It's just what's natural.

Yup... some snakes eat other snakes as part/all of their diets. It's not it happens in the wild and captive are snakes are healthier when fed properly. Nothing to be angry about - corn snakes are easy to breed, I wouldn't get too worried about it.

Bull snake babies are too large for Corals at least. And corns are part of thier natural diet and a preferred prey item. Plus you can get baby corns for $4 or less. I have had some that grew too large to be offered so i gave them away to good homes as pets.

Oddly enough, I jus tput a poll up about this exact subject last week. Herp Eaters

The reason they use corns is because you can get them dirt cheap.
