Lovely looking snake. I started off with 1 little corn. Now we have 4 corns, and 2 royal pythons. If we had room and the time, we'd have more. Enjoy watching it grow.

Go for it aussie corns are so cheap now and theres so many morphs i really struggled to pick one i liked best lol ahh i do like bearded dragons theyre pretty cool but need loads more space than a corn and for some strange reason handling dead mice doesnt seem to bother me as much as handling crickets/cockroaches lol

I wouldn't expect Aussie to be able to get his hands on a corn snake anytime soon. They illegal here and to keep one has a whopping great fine behind it and also jail time I think :| Nope we gotta stick with natives down here but we got some stunners of our own Very Happy

Kfenk is bang on the money on both counts, it's sad but understandable that, here in Aus we are restricted to native specie sand even then only a few species are on our list Sad still some of those species are really funky:)

From what I understand here in Western Australia they are trying to steer away from wild caught as every year they remove more species from the wild capture list which also requires a special permit. Can't speak for other states maybe, Kfenk knows, cause I'm fairly sure each state here has its own rules on Herptofauna.

yeah except you folks get a much wider range of species from what I can see it was only legalised here in 95. almost enough to make a fella want to move east Smile

Gorgeous corn snake ya got mate. Absolutely love the markings on it. Dazzling as they say!
Will you be breeding this one when it matures?


Dang permits. Why can't we just have access to them....whyyyyyy...... *cries*
I love snakes, not sure I'd want one though, their bites are nasty if they ever bite ya. I've seen snake handlers get bitten, not pretty.
