This is "The Brain" (the male she's mating with this year is called "Pinky")...

She's obviously an adult (or she wouldn't be breeding this year, heh).

Cool stuff, too bad she's in what appears to be a tupperware container ;)

lol b_heyer... I take it you don't have corn snakes? Tupperware, or similar, containers are the norm for breeders w/ corns, because they clean easier, and are easy to arrange for multiple snakes.

Axe - is that an Albino Corn? She looks alot like one I got recently, and was told was albino, although I'm not sure if the breeder really knows what she's talking about... :roll:

Yup, she is...

Technically speaking, Amelanistic is the correct term (no black pigment).

I also have 5 other corns. 3 of these are Creamsicle corn snakes (Amelanistic hybrids of a Corn Snake x Emory's Rat Snake), another one of these is also Amelanistic, and one is a Snow (Snow is a combination of Amelanistic and Anerythristic recessives).

Anerythristic is no red pigment (which leaves basically white, a hint of yellow and some non-colour - which appears as a kind of pink).

And yup, you're right, rubbermaids & sterilites are a snake-keeper's best friend, heh.

Just have a look at this photo. This is the hatchling room of SerpenCo.

:shock:

no wonder he does so well!

I'm still trying to sort out all the "A" words... aney... aner... anthr... it hurts my brain...

I have a Creamcicle, an Albino, a Snow, a Type B something... (Black w/ yellow sides) and a Hypo (at least that's what they told me)

I need to post some pics so I can get some opinions on the types I have. I'm not really sure anymore after browsing serpenco's corn snake forums that I have what I was told I have. Not to mention I think she sexed them incorrectly... :roll:

not enough time in the day though!

I know it's the norm, what I was saying is it'd be nice if she was in a more...natural..habitat that's all :-p

Well, she does have a more naturalistic enclosure, but she still eats in a rubbermaid - removes the risks of accidental substrate impaction, and learns the bite reflex right out of them..

If you feed your snakes in their enclosure every time, you'll find that every time you open up the door, they'll strike at you because they think food is coming. They learn that food is not going to come to them whilst they're in their enclosure, so they learn that striking at you in the hopes of food is pointless and they quit doing it (at least, that's the theory).

and IMHO it's easier to take pics because then you can keep them in one spot rather than trying to get them not to hide in their substrate or hides , etc.

Now, wish me luck, I'm about to head off out and take some photos of an 8ft female king cobra :)
