Bought a Charcoal Corn from BHB a few days ago and I've been giving him some time to acclimate. every time he is out and I walk into my room he goes right into striking at me from his glass dwelling. Is this normal for baby corns?
Also, after one or two strikes he runs into his hide.
Yes, this is normal. Baby corns are a little defensive - they crack me up with their attitude. They'll try their best to look terrifying and deadly. Don't worry about it. When yours gets a little size on him, he'll calm down. In the meantime, enjoy the show.
Like i tell everyone, Corns are subspecies of Rat snakes, and Rats are the nippiest snakes around, they have bad attitudes as babies. But of course as GoFride said, with proper handling and care it WILL calm down as it gets older and gets used to you. In the mean time enjoy the cute little threat poses they give you and the painless bites. Corns and Rats are truely awarding to work with.
