We got a cornsnake on Sunday. Jon and I went to the Midwest Reptile Expo here in town, where we had a chance to put our research to the test and talk to some breeders. It was a very neat thing to visit, and... well... we got a cornsnake! He's a four-month old male Okeetee. I have been waiting to get accurate measurements after he's fully adjusted, but he's somewhere between 14-18" long, and I have no guess on weight yet. He had his first feeding (well, first feeding here at home) late last night, which went very well. No name yet. My husband and I just can't agree on anything. LOL! And, pictures. Not very many, and not very good, because we wanted to stress him out as little as possible, so I just snapped these really quickly while Jon was transporting him from the travel container into the tank. I think he's going to settle in very well. He's been pretty laid back so far. You can see some of the neat patterns down his sides here. Got his head in focus! Huzzah! Tongue! He's not very colorful right now, but his oranges will get brighter and his reds will get bolder with every shed. You can kind of get a "preview" of how bright he will eventually be by looking at the orange near his head. That's all for now!
