Corn Snake Care : Corn Snakes As Pets


Hi I’m Debbie McCanna on behalf of Expert
Village.com. I am going to be talking to you today about the care and maintenance of corn
snakes. In this clip we are going to discuss why to have a corn snake as a pet. Corn snakes
are native to subtropic the Americas, Europe and Asia are easier to care for than most
species because they do not have the same tropical requirements of your python and boas.
Also, they grow between 4 and 6 feet and live 10 to 15 years with proper care. They are
generally docile and easily handled by both children with supervision and most adults.
If you are to live in an area where you cannot have a typical domestic pet such as a dog
or a cat or a bird due to their noise, a snake might just be the pet for you. They don’t
require daily handling. They are not noisy. They don’t smell. They only require feeding
as adults every two weeks. This is an adult corn snake here that I’ve had for approximately
10 years. As you can see, he’s reached adult length at about 4 feet and is very active
and enjoys being handled just climbing and twining around my arm. As long as I don’t
abruptly approach his face, he generally will just go where it would like to go.

  1. I was so close to buying a snow. But my cousin has the same one so I got an amel albino instead. I love him <3 named him Stuart 🙂

  2. by what i have read in the corn snake manual, the males tend to grow a little bit larger, but i have heard theories of the other way round, but personallly i belive its down to the individual, you get bigs and smalls of both adult sexes and if big males start mating with big females then theyll be big corn snakes for everyone lol

  3. Sorry man, if I saw that thing in my yard it would be cut in half in seconds! Snakes scare the hell out of me and I don't want them anywhere near me or my house!

  4. You're 'Shit' at English…
    Learn to spell…
    'yore' should be 'You are' or 'You're',
    also the 'but' should be replaced with 'also'.
    With that level of English i'm assuming you're either some plastic blonde bimbo or a over-weight 40 year old man who lives with his mother?

    Nice Vid BTW (:

    That bitch has no idea what sex that corn snake is. They can only be sexed by probing or popping. But that woman is retarded and should not be handling snakes let alone telling people incorrect information about them like they only need to eat once every 2 weeks.

  13. you know nothing about snakes, i litterally do the opposite of what expert village says and my snake is healthy, loving, and amazing, so suck onbt that expert village

  14. Never hold your snake in one spot of its body like she does. It can cause potential harm to its muscles and ribs. Find a better video if you need care info, she is def not an expert
