Now that we have covered snakes being pets in general, we can focus a little more on individual snake species. In this article, we will be looking at whether or not corn snakes are good pets. Corn snakes are pretty small in comparison to some other species of snake. That is usually what draws people into looking at them as their first snake choice. The great thing about corn snakes is that they are not very active, and they do not grow very big, even as an adult.
That means that you only need a medium-sized vivarium, around 3-4ft is fine for both baby and adult corn snakes. There are individual considerations that you need to account for. However, in general, the corn snake doesn’t need a lot in terms of habitat. Furthermore, they only need feeding every one to two weeks, depending on the size of them, and it is usually just a defrosted mouse.
Water is the most important issue that you need to think about. Ensuring it is exceptionally clean all of the time is a requirement for good health. However, other than that, if you are looking for a pet snake, a corn snake is one of the best options that you can pick.
