Tyler,
how long have you had her? or is it a he?
Nikki

TylerAlmighty 11-13-2009 08:04 AM

Its a he, and he is 3 months old ive had him for one month. He is 9 inches long so far, has never even thought about striking me, fun to handle. Best of all, he was cheap ;)

lovesnuffles 11-15-2009 10:52 PM

I don't think Koda is a normal. I think he's a flame kenyan. I saw some at the show today. They're yellow like that.

TylerAlmighty 11-17-2009 12:05 AM

Very possible.

Oh yeah and raptor, koda just wont eat F/T. Ill try pre-killing this weekend, but how should i do it? sounds like a brutal buisness o_O

raptor667 11-17-2009 12:28 AM

Tyler...slide your fingers around the neck of the mouse with one hand and make sure you can feel the bones in the skull and jaw. the grip the body with the other hand and give it a sharp tug with both hands and you should hear a crack as the neck breaks.

Or whack it over the back of the head with the handle of a screwdriver. Depending on how hard and where you hit it will determine that it's either brained of stunned.

Hopefully once you have changed over to prekilled you should have no probs going to frozen.

It doesn't take much to kill a rodent. I used to hit them in the head with some blunt object, but that can get bloody. Now I just hold them by the tail and slam them up against the walll, depending on how hard they hit, it will either stun them, knock them out, or kill them. I'm sure there are easier methods, but that's just what I do. My boa is spoiled and I hand feed her, so I try to avoid the mess of blood shed if I can.

Lucid_Existence 11-17-2009 12:39 AM

Yeah, I can't break their necks with my hands...
I wear thick leather gloves, and even so, I have a hard time holding them by the tail... Disgusting little creatures! And usually by the time I get them home and the snakes ready to eat, the damn vermin have already poo'd and urinated all over themselves.

TylerAlmighty 11-17-2009 01:56 AM

I dont think i could kill a pinky with any of those methods... I cant even kill a worm...

I think il just try F/T again and maybe thaw it out in a hot cup of water with chicken ramen noodle flavoring. i heard that works sometimes...

Nikki

Mika85 05-11-2010 03:12 AM

Thanks Lovesnuffles!! yea hes getting way more comfortable with me and hes so active! more so then most I've been around lol

lovesnuffles 05-11-2010 03:18 AM

Lol, they all have different personalities Mika. My two are night and day. In the cage my female is way active, and out with me she just sits there. My male just sits there in the cage and when he's out he's super active! Lol! He'll be more comfortable with you when you're more comfortable with him though. Animals seem to sense that stuff somehow ..... :/ Even when you're not aware of it yourself.

NASAAN101 05-11-2010 07:34 PM

I'll speck for that, that how my two kids are, to! Mika, how are are your snakes?
Nikki

DodoBird27 05-13-2010 02:29 AM

They are both beautiful!
Nice tat Mika :cool::D

Mika85 06-15-2010 03:53 AM

Marley is doing alright, the only thing is he has not defecated since i have had him... i last fed him 4 weeks ago and have been holding off not knowing if i should wait. i am trying warm soaks to see how that goes. i am guessing i will need to feed him regardless by the end of the week... but other than that he is still active :)

lovesnuffles 06-15-2010 01:10 PM

Try soaking him. Merlot only goes when he soaks. Luke warm water.

Mika85 06-15-2010 05:54 PM

thanks snuffles that is what i am trying... hopefully he will go soon, how long should i wait until it becomes a problem? and should i feed him before he goes? i know they can go awhile without eating but i hate that its been 4 weeks already..

DodoBird27 06-16-2010 01:41 AM

I say go ahead and feed him one more time, then stop until he goes. Sometimes my snake doesn't go after every feeding either.
Feel around at the base of his tail first and make sure you don't feel any lumps, that would be impaction. I doubt he has it, but anything can happen.

Mika85 06-16-2010 03:27 AM

thanks! i think ill feed him this week and see how it goes. i know the mouse i fed him was a little small so thought that may be have been the problem.

bill -
what is that that he's on?

Roy 05-08-2011 12:36 AM

It's some big weird plant thing that's growing in our front yard and Bill is coiled around this big freaky looking flower it's producing. I'm sorry, my botany skills are poor,:( I found it in the bushland behind my house.

DodoBird27 05-23-2011 07:54 AM

Ooh yeah, Agave. My family buys agave nectar, it's a good sweetener. Nice plant, too bad it dies after flowering! Bill sure likes it lol.

Roy 05-24-2011 07:28 AM

Yeah, he's not a hard to please kind of snake :D

Sparcky 09-28-2011 09:03 PM

I finally got my snake! Well I got 2 actually. I could not decide between the two....
So here are Apollo

and Apophis
http://www.flickr.com/photos/6811948...n/photostream/

They just ate so they finally held still enough for decent pics. I love my corns <3

Sparcky 09-29-2011 03:04 PM

awww.... my post did not show up :(

lovesnuffles 09-29-2011 04:20 PM

They're beautiful!! And they take me back to the days when I had my first snakes!

Sparcky 09-29-2011 07:42 PM

It was love at first sight! I can't believe they are so tiny... Apollo's head is barely the size of my fingernail and Apophis is smaller. They are so funny. I could spend hours just watching them explore. I think Apollo is a lavamel and Apophis is a fire morph... not sure though. Any insight would be appreciated..

lovesnuffles 09-29-2011 08:01 PM

Apollo kinda looks like a creamsicle to me and Apophis like an Amelanistic. But corn snake morphs are so many and many of them look so much alike that it's REALLY hard to tell what morph any corn snake is anymore.
