How lucky are we to have been able to witness this !
our mommy Corn Snake, she is almost four years old and she laid her first
clutch of eggs, boy we sure were excited to see this happening. Look at the
picture of Heidi when she was a baby, whew...now she is having her own. "Heidi" is a member of the
Albino family, these color morphs are the work of specialized
breeding in captivity which has produced some of the prettiest colored
well behaved people friendly little guys ever ! We love 'em !!
It's unreal to see how nature does things and the fact that some snakes are born alive while other snakes lay eggs....hmmmm strange huh !
Did you realize snakes do not close their eyes ??
We feed our baby Corn snakes pre-killed day old pinky mice, and they eat 1 of these a twice a week. It's unreal to see how wide a snake can open their mouth. Unhinging their jaws to take in the size of the prey that need to eat.
Our collection of corn snakes is building with a number of color variations, and some very nice specimens were donated by George & Janice Morrison of Bayou Vista.
We have a regular phase (male 4'), bubblegum snow (male 2' bred to red albino), red albino (female 18"), candy cane (female 15"), silver ghost queen (female 9") & a zig zag (male 12")
Jungle Corn snakes are hybrid king snake x corn snake crosses-usually from a California king snake x corn snake pairing. Jungle corns should be kept separate from other corns, as they tend to keep their king snake habits, and may consume unwary cage mates. Patterning varies, often into the extremes of showing markings from both parents.
Most "jungle" patterns do not show up in the first generation babies. If the babies from the first generation are bred together, then the jungle pattern shows up, and continues on down the line, creating more intricate patterns and color variations.
We currently have 1 pair of Jungle Corn snakes in our collection.
