    My 03' corn absolutely pounds down the mice. (Fuzzies). Do all corns have this amazing feeding response? If I offered a fuzzy every other day, (which I wouldn't) this snake would take it.

    Tell me about your corn's eating habits.

    ive noticed that too. my corn is like my stress releiver. after only getting one or two of my ball pythons to eat i can always count on that little corn to eat its pinkies.
    i saw kathy love talk about corns at the first reptile expo i ever went to. she had a picture of a corn that had actually eaten itself. it looked like it had eaten about half of its body. the snake didnt live, but thats a very good example of their feeding response.

    Yes our corn snakes usually eat very good. Right now they are starting to breed so they are eating large meals every three to four days and always seem like they are still hungry. Even when it is not breeding season they are almost always hungry.

    My corn has a feeding response that puts my kings to shame! I had always heard about the feeding responses from kings - and they are aggressive, but my corn is amazing. He actually startles me everytime he strikes. I swear he's going to jump out of the tub.
