Snake Facts : Corn Snakes

Snake Facts : Corn Snakes

Now I’ve got a beautiful little baby corn
snake here. This guy’s a little bit older that a hatchling. You can see he’s also a
Colubrid, part of the family. He’s a long, skinny-type snake. A little bit more flighty
and fast. He does want to run away a little bit. Corn snakes tend to be pretty tame, pretty
docile. You can see he’s holding on to my, that’s another great example of a use of a
tail by a snake. He’s, he can hold onto me right like that, and put his whole body weight
on there if he needs to. But, like I said, these guys are very, very common all throughout
the United States and northwest. They are called corn snakes because they’re often found
in corn fields, feeding on mice and things like that. They come in a wide variety of
color variations now. There’s lots of designer species out there you can get your hands on.
This one has a, one of my particularly favorite colorations. This nice, deep red is, I find
very attractive. You can see he’s sniffing around frantically with that tongue, flicking
it about, checking out what’s going on. Making sure there’s no predators around, or no prey.
Maybe he’s hungry, though this guy did eat not too long ago. At this size, he is eating
“pinkies”, little baby mice, and he’s eating roughly two to three of them a week. He definitely
likes to pack in the food. So, just like we were talking about with the rainbow boa, if
I can get him to chill out for one second, that’s where his tail starts, right there.
You can see the sudden change in width. It very quickly drops down. His vent is right
there on the bottom. He really does not want to chill out for me at all. Not trying to
bite me, though, you’ll notice. They’re very, very tame in that sense. He doesn’t want to
bite me. Snakes don’t want to bite, it’s their last line of defense, really. He’d much rather
run from me than bite me, because if he bites me, he’s invested in our fight, and chances
are, against any mammal for the most part, I’m going to win, as I have lots of teeth
and claws.

    Should i get my corn snake from a breeder or a pet store?

  2. qwtrerry says:

    @Zilphon pet stores may sell you wild caught snakes, which may come with parsites and other kinds of health issues. on the other side, most pet stores get their snakes from breeders. Honestly, with a snake as simple and cheap as a corn snake, it makes no real difference.

  3. Crucible X Productions says:

    @WweHHHEdge your dumb its not illegal to feed snakes live food actually live food has more protein in them than frozen thawed learn you facts before saying stupid stuff 1 con is the mouse can bite the snake but rarely has the chance more protein = more healthy snake:)

  29. Gabriel samarine says:

    Corn snakes r the best beginner pets there awesome

  30. Trey Kennedy says:

    They are actually called corn snakes due to the pattern on their bellies which resembles indian corn. Other than that this is a very accurate video!

  31. Beany says:

    '' The name "corn snake" is a holdover from the days when southern farmers stored harvested ears of corn in a wood frame or log building called a crib. Rats and mice came to the corn crib to feed on the corn, and corn snakes came to feed on the rodents''

  32. ohdear5671 says:

  46. Princz Benjamin Brown says:

    DO NOT feed your baby corn SNAKE 3 times a week! what a FUCKING IDIOT>> DONT DROP YOUR FUCKING SNAKE!

  47. Brad says:

    Calm your ass down child. The snake fell off his arm it was an accident he knows what he is doing. It is not nearly that big of a deal. Let the man do his job and if you feel like you can do it better nobody is stopping you from making your own videos. Try being a little more respectful to people working in a field that obviously interests you, and good luck.

  48. Matt Tschetter says:

    well he does work at a pet store

    Can I get your help
    Please? I am watching my dear friend’s snake and they moved From Arizona to Illinois and the first two weeks the behavior it was exhibiting was super normal, friendly, but 8 weeks in he is starting to rattle his tail like a rattle snake and hides underneath the dirt in his cage, or hangs out at the top of it just hanging there on the ropes. I have contacted my friends updating them about his behavior but it scares me that somehow I am stressing him out and I don’t know why or even how I would be doing that, I am super gentle lifting his cage top to replace his water with high quality water at that (they always come over to feed him) , and don’t want to be responsible for stressing him and if it results in death!!!! Someone please help πŸ˜«πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–
