Return to Rescue Animals
Vimto is a ghost motley corn snake, with an unknown age. He has been probed as male here with us. He was handed in by his previous owners to allow another family to give him more time and attention.
He is in good health, besides arriving underweight and slightly dehydrated. He has since built condition with good hydration and regular feeding. He has yet to shed with us, but we have no reason to believe it would cause problems.
Vimto was advised as a “biter” by his previous owners, and has lived up to this well. He is NOT a beginner corn snake, and will do best with a confident handler that doesn’t mind being mistaken for food. He can also be viv defensive.
A corn snake with the heart of a viper, but stunning.
Vimto will need a 4x1x1ft vivarium as a minimum, to allow space to exercise and move around. A caged over-head heat source should be fitted with a suitable thermostat to maintain a warm-side temperature of 32C. The cool side should sit below 23C. A low-level UV bulb should be provided – 5% ideally. He is now fed on a standard diet, of large mice every 2-3 weeks.
