Hi, we rescued a corn snake today, from the vets.
Apon inspection it appears to be a good lookin, healthy snake, it was alert, fast moving and lively when i picked it up despite feeling very cold to the touch.
About 16 inch in length.
At home i wanted to feed it anyway and took some photos of the whole routine, i know weve all seen a snake feed before but it is still one of the fascinating things about snakes that makes me like them/reptiles so much and i haven't had any snakes for years so haven't been able to watch it.
Oddly enough this snake, in natural light is a very dark grey, light grey and off white in colour but i think my camera is still set or i've used a setting that i've been experimenting with were the reds are up..hence its browner look in the photos? :?
Heres the sequence eating a defrost, took about 7 minutes.
Inspite of its overall good health and weight it was still very eager to feed and took almost instantly.

Great Collection of photos you have there!
I think feeding time is amazing!
and no matter how many times i look at pictures, It's still fascinating to watch/see!

Thanks for sharing and good luck with him :)

I dont know what colour morph corn it is, i have had a brief scan and the closest i've found was a ghost corn?
It looks very red in these photos but that is because i had my reds turned up in personal settings, in real life it is more dark/light grey and off white? perhaps the slightest hint of brown??
