Franky boy

I don't recall introducing Frank, I don't know why I wouldn't post about him... Odd! Well, I'm going to post about him now either way. Frank was given to me by a girl who I went to college with. She had bought him as a hatchling and could apparently not have him anymore due to moving house (that apparently doesn't allow animals, so she got two new kittens?) and asked me to take him in. I didn't mind, as I really missed my Dakota and snakes are pretty easy to care for once you get over the hurdle of the enormous vets bills Because she hadn't bothered to handle him much, he has been a very aggressive little man, which is a shame as he is absolutely beautiful. Well, after months and months of daily handling (even involving a hook at some times!) I have finally got comfortable with handling him and NOT getting bitten. He had yet to bite me, but he tried! He's a lot more confident in himself now too. He comes to the front of his vivarium to say hi and is very interactive. He's coming up to 2 years old, is a normal Carolina corn snake and is just over 5ft long. Here's a cute photo of him

Oh and here's a cruddy zoomed in phone photo of him so you can see his whole pattern. The photo definitely does not do him justice. Not to mention he just pooped all over the carpet when I took that!

Wow, he's gorgeous. If I could ever own a snake (and I don't see that happening unless I don't mind never seeing half of my family again ) I would get a corn snake. they are beautiful.

I'm impressed with the way you worked with him and won his confidence! Our Nature Program here has a corn snake about that size and he is a wonderful program animal. Very easy to handle and very much a favorite of the children.

What a neat looking snake! Although I prefer ball pythons over corns, I still think corns are great!
