And I'm still totally jealous that you are getting a JCP, they are some of my favorite looking snakes. And on my "someday" list. If I do end up getting a snake while still here in the apartment, it must be hideable. Thus tiny snakes!


When I get my reptile room there will be at least one JCP, and one RTB. I don't know that I'd want to go larger than those. I also don't think I'll have another ball ever. I would love a leucistic Texas rat snake someday.
Because this:


Dies of the pretty.

Amanda, I love your photos and your corn snake is adorable! Those are some really great shots - are you just using your 50mm for them? I'm debating whether or not I should get a macro down the road, but for now I'll probably just use my 50mm.

6 more days for meeeee! I just dug up some pictures of the parents of my JCP baby and holy gorgeous. I'll make a thread soon to keep track of various snake baby related thing They really are so neat and I'm glad I decided on them in the end! They don't require much space for their size, but it's true that a 4' x 2' x 2' terrarium/tub might get a little hard to hide

I really wanted a red tail boa as well, but space was definitely an issue there. One day I'll have one! And ughhh, I love all leucistic snakes. You really just can't go wrong with that.

Yup just the 50mm.

Thanks I adore him, he's such a cool dude. He likes to give us massages... On our tracheas. LOL.

Great to know! If I can get photos half as good as that I'll be more than happy!

Arbutus sounds like a lot of fun! Corn snakes just seem like such all around nice snakes, from their nice temperament to their activity level to their feeding response. They come in some neat colors but honestly I think the normal/standard ones are beautiful on their own.

We're hoping to get a second one eventually and maybe breed. Gotta get Arbutus checked out first to see if he's really a boy but we're pretty sure.

Yeah, my rat cage is huge and I always worry that someday one of the maintenance men will wonder a little too much about what is under that sheet covering the huge box, lol. An adult male sand boa or hognose can stay in a 10 gallon. I can hide 10 gallons!

That's awesome!! I've recently become fascinated with the breeding/incubation/hatching process and would really look forward to following your progress on that. Plus, snake babies! Squee <3

Haha my roommate uses a 20 gallon for her 2 rats and even that is tough to hide on short notice. How long do hognose snakes get? I had no idea that 10 gallons could do just fine for them!

I hid a bird cage in one of my former apartments… locked bedroom door, radio on.. it was fun. lol At least snakes and rats aren't NOISY!

The adult female I held today was definitely under 3 feet, probably a closer to 2. The male was maybe a foot and a half? The guy at Balanced Scales Reptiles said a 10 gallon would be good for a male and a 20 might be better for a larger female.


Thoughts on Exo-Terra terrariums? Worth it or should I just go with a regular aquarium? I was going to paint the outside 3 walls black to give the new inhabitant a bit of privacy. Also have some cool grapevine that might look neat in the enclosure… just need to decide what the basic enclosure is going to be.

Equinox, male hogs generally get no longer than about 24 inches.
