Sammy

Return to Rescue Animals

Ready for rehoming…

Sammy is a normal corn snake and is around 2.5 years old. She was handed in after biting the young owner, who then lost all confidence to care for her.

Her previous enclosure was a 2ft wooden vivarium, with a heat mat and aspen bedding that was very soiled. She was fed a small mouse twice a week.

Sammy is in good health! She was slightly overweight on arrival, but nothing too concerning. She is also missing the very tip of her tail, as she had it amputated after a long period of bad sheds in her previous home.

She is a little nervous in the enclosure, is fast moving and may strike at hesitant hands. However, she calms down very quickly and is well behaved when handled.

A nervous snake that is learning to trust!


Care Requirements:

Sammy will need a 4ft vivarium as a minimum, to allow space to exercise and move around. A caged, overhead 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 – 5-7% ideally. Sammy is fed a small mouse every 1-2 weeks.
