    That's a relief! While chances were in their favor, you just never know unless you test.

    Spent nearly the entire day on it, but he's finally in his new home.

    This was the angriest I've ever seen him yesterday. Because he's still so small I had to root around in the substrate to find him and he was not happy about it. Tail rattling, defensive striking, very agitated. He did eat but only after I walked away. In hindsight it was probably too soon after moving into his new abode, but it was well over when his next feeding time was and I wanted to get some food in him.

    That's just fear & self-defense- just when he was starting to feel safe & hidden, lol. Shame on you for scaring that tiny snake-

    I know it's defensive. In fact I don't think it's possible for a snake to facilitate the emotion of what we would call anger, but it's just easier to say "He was angry" instead of "He was scared and acting defensive."

    I know what you meant- that he "looked angry".

    First handling session in a while. Between power outages and medical problems so painful they left me borderline bedridden for the past week hasn't left me able to get much of anything done. He's still skittish, tagged me twice and even after calming down a bit kept trying to move away. Try to show him that he doesn't scare me and that I shouldn't scare him. It's a slow work in progress. Didn't expect him to turn out so spirited, but I don't mind.

    Sorry to hear you've been out of sorts & all- even a "spirited" young corn snake can't do much damage so I doubt this will continue for very long- mine never have, anyway.

    Not much of an update, been so busy with work, but finished an improvement between Hoco and Zebes' setups. A while back I shoved some 2x4s between the cages as the heat from Zeb's panel below was affecting the temps of the enclosure above and making the cool side too warm (the RHPs are on opposite sides between enclosures). Thankfully the gap from the wood planks was enough to alleviate this issue, and added a third plank in the middle after this was taken to prevent bowing.


    Today I finally got around to sawing them to size and painting them so it looks much more aesthetically pleasing and so there's not just wood randomly jutting out.
