Corn snake (Pantherophis guttatus) is a non-poisonous snake wild in the southern regions of North America to northern Mexico. It inhabits drier pine forests, fields and deforested areas.

It is the most common and the most popular because of its low domestic snake. As the name suggests, its color is red, but there are other forms of color. Bottom is white with black "chessboard". Corn snake grows to 140-200 cm. In the wild, the snakes eat small rodents. Life expectancy is 12-18 years.

For her quiet nature and simplicity breed is suitable for beginners. In captivity, it is most commonly farmed species of snake. However, he runs every slightest hole.

In captivity, enough to feed the snake mice (1 piece 2-3 times a month), the young snakes baby mice (1 piece 4 times a month). To diversify the diet of this snake can be used to be a one-day chicken. Approximately three days after feeding food grass snake and at this time it is necessary to leave her in peace.

For a single individual is sufficient terrarium size of 120 × 60 × 50 cm. Bottom terrarium should be covered by a mixture of sand and peat in a ratio of 1: 1 or beech wood shavings or chips. Terrarium need to equip stone (to snake had nowhere to hide and where to bask), a bowl of water (so great that it all could curl) and heating (bulb heating cable is suitable heating foil). The temperature in the terrarium keep around 24-25 st., At night we let fall to room temperature. Since the snake like crawling and explore it is convenient to place a terrarium and some branches, preferably a fruit tree.

Corn snake undresses about once a month and molting process takes about a week. During this week snake slightly lose color and seemed to go gray, her eyes cloudy. Grass is holed up, because they see worse and after about a week again gets its color and after three days he shall put off the old skin. Before being taken off in a terrarium, it is necessary to maintain an even greater humidity. If the stripped skin piece, it means that the snake is healthy and has suitable conditions for breeding. If the skin is not the whole, it may indicate illness, but even just a little humidity in the terrarium.

Corn snake is nocturnal snake. They sleep during the day and at night is active. Therefore, from poorly sealed terrarium runs mostly at night when it is quiet and everyone is asleep. Her mode can be rotated when the terrarium is placed into the dark part of the apartment, and at night we shine.

These snakes can be a time to try and a successful breeding. The multiplication of the females should measure at least 100 cm, but because it can be difficult to measure generally serpent says to sexual maturity at about Gutta in 2.5 - 3 years of life. Given that, in their homeland leads to temperature changes, it is preferable to more successful mating female have called. Winterized. It is a period when 1-3 months will reduce the temperature and snakes that he almost stopped after odzimování metabolism and the individual is more nastimulován for mating.

Pregnancy with gutta takes about 60 days. After this time withstands snake eggs. With proper incubation, which should be at a temperature of 28 ° C and sufficient moisture after a further 60-80 days hatched chicks which are already self-sufficient. After the first undresses we can start feeding jednodeními HOLATA. Mostly food intake is not a problem. If the food repeatedly refuse, we ourselves must manually hassle rozkrmit.

It is from the family stranglers. Mouse hunt so that it would suffocate and devour them. Not poisonous, so when you bite a human, nothing will happen to him. Aside from that, it hurts around like wasp stings. If we are talking about non-poisonous snakes, then it is always a bite, not bites as is often misinterpreted, can only bite by a poisonous snake.
