    Very interesting- & good news- I hope she continues to improve & stays healthy. Still glad though that none of my snakes need toothbrushes or mouthwash.

    Great that it healed/is healing so quickly. Also great she gobbled down her mouse today. Additionally, she's really been a sport about it and is still a sweetie.

    I am glad none of your snakes need toothbrushing as well! I guess it's the price I have to pay for such a "designer" morph. If I had to do it again, I probably wouldn't get a scaleless reptile. Lots of added work around shed, and now this, etc. However, I love my girl Solana and I am committed to her (and she is kind of gorgeous), so I'll do what I have to.

    Between Yafe and Solana, I've kept my vet on her toes.

    Anyone who wants advice on injections, nebulizers, or snake teeth brushing, just call this guy. .

    Most corn snakes ARE sweeties. Just because they move around more, or faster than BPs, doesn't mean they're difficult or feisty. They're great beginner snakes (with scales, anyway).

    Your vet probably just about has her yacht paid for, thanks to you.

    Touché - on the "with scales."

    I agree. Great snakes, period. I may have larger constrictors and "more difficult" snakes in my collection, but both my corns are awesome. Sweet, eat like clockwork, easy to keep and forgiving, come in so many colors and patterns, etc. What else could you want? I recommend for beginners because of tank size and how easy husbandry is, but also know many people who keep them for life. Like me, they still appreciate them.

    I do find it funny that many people "feel" that colubrids in general, but definitely corns, are "creepy" or scary because they move fast and in a serpentine way. I find more people are comfortable with my Boas and Pythons because they are so slow and deliberate in their movements. My mom loves holding Behira (Female BI), but doesn't like holding Figment (wiggle worm Lavender Corn). She will hold Solana because she's pretty chill for a corn. Not too much of a wiggle worm once out for a minute.

    Like you, I've had MANY snakes & for a very long time- I still love corn snakes too. The forgiving husbandry makes them good for beginners, though their ability to escape when they're hatchlings is a consideration & a good sales-pitch for at least starting with a yearling. Hatchlings are very fragile & not for handling until they grow some anyway.

    I think partly what bothers some people about their activity is that they don't understand that the snake isn't about to turn & bite them- they haven't learned to read snakes & "slower" just seems less of a threat, but the funny thing is that BP teeth are WAY bigger & hurt a lot more, lol. The bite of a young corn snake feels like sandpaper, not even "teeth". And I love that corn snakes don't get "too big" for easy handling & economical housing. Not to mention their beautiful colors & markings. I think corns just need more "spokes-people".

    Solana just had a perfect shed and looks amazing. I thought I'd share some pics.

    I love her vivid high-energy orange color- much like the Everglades rat snakes I used to have. She's lookin' good, Dave.
