Cleo's home! [pics]

So I finally went to pick up Cleo today on behalf of my lodger (knew I'd be taking responsibility! I did say!) as he couldn't do it. She's a lot less snappy compared to my Kenyan sand boa hatchling! She's a caramel motley stripe Carolina corn snake and she is beautiful so unique looking

There you are!



Look at that precious, over sized head



Such an odd colour



So that's it! There she is

When I read the title of this thread I thought you were posting photos of her enclosure, ha.

She is gorgeous and those big buy eyes are so adorable! I love her stripe and color and everything, ha.

Thanks Kayla! I know a lot of people aren't a fan of corns because they're a 'starter' snake and all that but I think they're the best snake out there for personality. All of mine have all been unique. This little one has already shown off her personality too. And I can't get over how pretty she is. You'd of thought I would have paid over the roof for a morph like that but the breeder was selling her for 30! I had the Kenyan sand boa for the same amount and if I get a hognose off him he wants 40 Her enclosure is nothing special at the moment. She's in the hatchling tub she came in so we don't freak her out. She'd been living in it for a while though. It's a tiny tub with some kitchen roll in it and a toilet paper tube. She's happy enough haha!

Same here! Their morphs are amazing. Hopefully if my lodger does get the parents of this girly I can show everybody how amazing they look, they really are something else!

As I've told Daisy several times, I think corns are kind of weird, they remind me of worms. I prefer ball pythons; they've got more defined heads which I like. Besides, I like the thickness of a ball python, rather than longness of a corn.

Thanks for sharing these awesome pics!

Thank you Judy and Abby I think corns have a more defined head than say my Kenyan sand boa, or a milk snake. Milk snakes might as well be worms I think if you owed one you'd love one, trust me on this

Sorry to say everybody, but Cleo passed away. I'm not having much luck at the moment. I didn't understand it either. I was trying to think of what it could be. I know that the breeder in the start had a lot of trouble getting her to feed. He had, however, been feeding her well since then except for the last few weeks. At first I was really stumped. Her set up was identical to that which she had at the breeders. She had a small water bowl, a toilet paper tube for a hide (her favourite thing) and paper towels as substrate. Standard hatchling snake set up. I couldn't find anything wrong with it. Her heat mat was set with a thermostat, so it wasn't that + there were no burns or anything on her. I thought that perhaps she was very dehydrated from not taking her food over the last few weeks... yet she had a water bowl? Surely she'd of known to drink from it... Frank and Caesar always drink if they're thirsty. Plus having a water bowl in there helps with the humidity, fab for when they're about to shed! It was only when I was looking at a video (I wasn't paying much attention because I was filming) of her feeding that I spotted the problem. The pinkie, which I had bought from a pet store, was almost black inside obviously, they hadn't stored it well because it had started to decay. The skin was also peeling off it, like a sausage sort of thing. No wonder she regurgitated it the day after. I checked ALL of the pinkies in the freezer and they're all the same I contacted the breeder before hand asking him if there was ANYTHING wrong before we took her other than her being a stubborn feeder but he was very honest and said no. He felt really bad for my lodger and is giving us another Kenyan sand boa tomorrow night. It won't be the same at all though. She was such a little beauty, fantastic personality. Was going to make an excellent breeder

I honestly didn't know that stores could be so stupid, but then I guess it may also be the supplier and how long they were in transit for All of them are individually packaged too. I'd take a photo and put it up but it may be graphic for most

The mice may have thawed and re-frozen on the way to the store. Poor girl!

Oh what sad news Daisy!!! I'm so sorry Cleo was gorgeous. May I suggest you raise your own pinkies. I worked as a volunteer at a wildlife center we raised our own supply of mice for those that ate them. That was one of my jobs to care for the feeder mice. It didn't bother me because I know about the food chain in life.

Oh I am so sorry Daisy. When I did the snake thing I was always getting rotten mice from the pet stores which is one of the reasons I have held off getting a new snake until I can raise my own feeders.
