    I know I am late to post these, but I entered one in a photo contest on a corn snake forum and it was against the rules to post it (or similar photos) anywhere online until the conclusion of the contest. Hopefully there are a few people out there that don't mind a little extended Christmas spirit! :p

    Anyways, Reggie is a late '08/early '09 classic (normal) corn snake. I don't remember his exact weight of the top of my head, but he has been growing like a weed and starting to get some heft to him. I think he's pretty neat.

    He's posing with a miniature artificial tree that I keep on my nightstand during the holidays.

    These were my five favorite photos of the shoot!

    Reggie looks nice on the tree. You don't need garland with him on it.

    I thought they turned out pretty well, too. I did try to set up the photo so that he would wrap around completely like a garland on top, but he was having none of that. Lol!


    He does eat mice, though he has graduated to fuzzies, which are a size larger than pinkies. :)

    It's actually not good for corn snakes to eat crickets and meal worms because the snakes are not designed to digest the exo-skeletons. Insects can actually cut up a snakes insides! :eek:

    Thank you! :D

    I can't wait to receive my prize, but it's going to be a few weeks before it can ship.

    He's gorgeous! I've got an amel and a ghost but I've always loved the richer colors of the normals :)
