Cornsnake. Possibly a snow morph.

Anything specific I should probably know about them before I spend the next day researching? Habits, likes or dislikes? I really wish I could hold him/her but he/she seems pretty quick to go for my hand when I try to pick it up.. Even 48 hours after feeding.. I feed 2 adult mice every 7 days..

Re: What kind of snake is this?

So cute. Corns are easy. They're good with pretty low humidity so that aspen is fine for substrate. I keep my ambient temps around 80 with a hot spot of 85, not dropping below 72-75 on the cool side. I have hides on both ends, water dish in the middle, open screen top on a 10 gallon tank (still a baby)..mine utilizes her cold side the most. I have some clutter for aesthetics and she seems to hang around on the branches and stuff but not totally necessary. How much does she weigh? Thats the best way I could tell you if what you're feeding is appropriate.

As for handling, try using an object like snake hook or paper towel roll to lightly tap her head and sides to let her know you are coming. you can scoop her out with a hook if you can get one, or once you've alerted her to your presence scoop her from behind. You can always wear garden gloves until she gets used to handling too.

I'd do one adult about their girth every 2 weeks, corns get obese very easily, and from what I've seen, they generally stay small enough to eat one adult mouse every other week. Weekly vs biweekly can be debated, but I in general feed my snakes less. Even my garters get a meal every other week, and I've noticed that they're less chubby and more active (well my albino is the other one is hyper no matter what I do).

Re: What kind of snake is this?

Looks similar to my boyfriends corn:

(for reference).

He feeds his one small rat every 2 weeks. His corn is a snow/albino or possibly a blizzard (there is a bit more yellow in his saddles than a standard albino) corn. A snow is the UK (or non-American) version of albino from what I understand from a different forum. Please correct me if I am wrong @Andy_G.

Amelanistic is the albino form of a corn snake. Amels have red eyes with white instead of black blotch margins. They are generally vivid orange, red and yellow.

Snow, blizzard, avalanche, etc. are selectively bred morphs.

Ah thanks for the information. He got the corn from petsmart or petco many years ago (about 15) and he believes that it was labeled as a blizzard but he isn't 100% sure.

You must've meant morph combinations?

Re: What kind of snake is this?

Corns are pretty adaptable. They inhabit somewhat warmer and humid areas of the US including usually considered tropical Florida the most but they'll thrive in a range of humidity and temps and often use them if given the choice. I give mine a lot of options with lizard basking bulbs during the day that can get 90-100F in the center of a small area and I try to keep them from dropping as low of humidity as some of my more temperate US species so they are usually closer to 60% all the time but they'll eat, grow, and shed through a range of 70s-80s F and down to 40% humidity. I find they like wood and some quite enjoy climbing on wider pieces, especially if you have top heat but keep your temps lower 80s so they can sit closer to the lamp on occasion.

Mine are about 3', including the one I'm told is 4years old, and eat rat fuzzies every 12-14days but most use an adult mouse. I only raised rats to fill my freezer this year because I'm too allergic to mice.
