Corn Snake Food For Sale
For a very good reason, corn snakes are one of the most popular pet snakes in the world. They have a good temper and are very easy to keep. The adult size of a corn snake is usually between 4 to 6 feet, and they have a slender body type. The “original” corn snakes have a checkered pattern in black and white on their bellies that looks like a corn cob. The word ‘original’ is used because the corn snakes have been bred to get amazing patterns and colors including striped, spotted, no pattern, and various types of colors. Even local pet shops have a huge variety of these snakes.
Types of Food for the Corn Snake
When they live in wild, corn snakes eat a lot of different things. Corn snakes that originate in North America prey on small sized mammals generally found in corn fields, such as voles and shrews, small lizards, birds, mice, rats, and other rodents. Anole Lizards are one of the favorite foods of corn snakes. But for pet snake owners, lizards are not a readily available food source. Therefore, mice and various other types of rodents are the main food item for feeding snakes. They are not only readily available but can also be easily bred in large quantities, not to mention that they are very cost effective as well. Furthermore, they can also be frozen, allowing them to be purchased and stored in bulk.
Apart from choosing the right type of rodent for your pet corn snake, it is equally important to choose the proper size in order to avoid problems. If the size of a mouse is too small, your snake won’t get enough nutrients it needs to stay healthy and grow. If the size of the mouse is too large, it can cause digestive issues in your snake, and possibly regurgitation. Therefore, it is important to choose the proper size of the rodent for your pet snake.
Live vs. Frozen Food
It is recommended to feed your pet snake frozen mice and rodents. It has been proven that frozen rodents are safer for your snake to eat. On the other hand, if you feed your pet snake live food, such as live mice and rodents, it can be risky, especially if mice are bigger than your corn snake. Bigger rodents and mice might bite the snake, and it will have no defense against it. Therefore, it is better to feed your snake frozen food instead of alive.
