Well, it’s becoming a fight again with my corns. And aside from that, I have a new nickname given to me by one of my good friends… :p The Corn Snake Queen! Muahahahaha!!! This is because I want absolutely every corn I see (I’m obsessed, there’s just something about those spunky little serpents that make me love them!) , and I scarcely look at many other types of snakes. Though one day, I think I’d kill for an Indigo, I saw one while browsing around because I’ll be getting some money soon from my job, and all I have to say is I think I’m in love!
But can you guys tell me what’s up with my snakes? They all shed around the same times; Beastie, because she’s the biggest always sheds a week or so before, and then Lestat goes blue, then Koi, and then Beauty; all within a day of each other. Why is this?
Also, I need some help from the corn snake masters out there! Beauty will not eat; he just won’t, ever since I got Beastie to switch to F/T about a month and a half ago (thankfully). I was trying to breed some live mice for him until I could make him transition, but that’s the problem, he won’t take the lives either! When I get my first pay check, should I take him in to a vet? And if so, does anyone in the Illinois area know of a good vet? (I’ll go anywhere in the surrounding area, but I live in Lake County IL, so I’d prefer closer to me).
He’s gone blue although he hasn’t eaten in quite a while, yesterday on feed day, I tried that chicken broth thing that everyone says works. He looked like he was sniffing at it, went close, and then backed off. I tried giving a smaller prey to start with, a pretty decent sized fuzzy when he’d usually take out a hopper. And I left him there with it overnight. But; nothin’. I’ve scented my dead mice up against one of the live ones I have, he just won’t take it. His weight is starting to drop because he isn’t eating, and he was getting some girth, but he’s just getting very thin. Help L!
