Origin: Southeast America and Northeast Canada. This great starter snake grows to an adult size of approximately 2.5 to 5 feet. They are available in a range of different colours but all of the corns have a "V" shape on their head. Some of the colours you can purchase are as follows: Albino, Black, Candy Cane, Fluorescent, Motley, Snow and many more - too many to list! If you want to own a snake for the first time, this is the ideal "Pet Snake". They have a calm nature, can be handled frequently and are very easy to maintain and feed. As with all snakes, they need a high temperature during the day to allow their food to digest. A temperature of 30C (85F) should be provided during the day with a drop down to 25C (75F) at night. The easiest way to provide heat is to place a heat mat under 1/3 of the tank and use a low wattage bulb during the day to stimulate the day time hours. The cool end must be provided with a water dish so the snake can maintain its own temperature.
