    It is feeding time. Smoke is my son's 2 year old male corn snake (the dark one), Katrina is the 3 year old female blizzard corn (white), and the orange one is Striker who is a 5 year old male albino corn.

    Here is Smoke finishing off his mouse.

    Quote:You can feed frozen. Just make sure they are room temp before feeding. I may get another boa down the road but right now I will stick to my leo gecko and scorpions.

    Oh yeah frozen is the only way to go. we buy our frozen mice from Big Cheese Rodents. Much cheaper in bulk. buying them at a pet shop will bankrupt you in a hurry.

    Striker luvs rats but they are much too expensive so he has to stick with adult or x-large mice. [​IMG]

    Corn snakes make great pets. They are very mellow and do not bite unless they mistake your hand for a mouse. [​IMG]

    Here is my youngest grandson hanging out with Striker on a recent visit to Paw Paw's.

    Great pics! Love corns... they are almost as gently as the balls.

    And definitely feed frozen, thawed, or at least pre-killed if you can. We raise rats for our flock of slitherins, and all but the hots eat f/t rats.
