Popcorn

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Popcorn is an adult male corn snake that came into our care after a member of the public found him in their shed! Unfortunately, we were unable to trace his owners so he is now looking for a new home. Popcorn is around 4ft in length and is a lovely buttery yellow colour! He has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition.

Popcorn is a strong-willed snake that knows where he wants to go when he is out of his vivarium. He is pretty fast moving when you first pick him up but soon settles and is happy to be handled.  Whenever we get him out he always aims for the nearest available trouser or jacket pocket! He loves exploring new surroundings. Popcorn is a lovely snake; he eats well and has had no issues shedding.

Popcorn will need a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow him to fully stretch out. He will require a thermal gradient of 28-30°c at the warm end and 20-24°c at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat.  Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb should also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Popcorn or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

 

Polo

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Polo is an 18 month old male corn snake that came into our care after a member of the public found him straying in their garden. Unfortunately, we were unable to trace his owners so he is now looking for a new home. Polo is just short of 4ft in length and has scales as white as snow. He has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition.

Polo is pretty fast moving when you first try and pick him up, he will aim for his nearest hide or attempt to burrow under his aspen. Once he’s caught, he soon settles and is happy to be handled and enjoys exploring his new surroundings.

Polo has only been with us a short time, but he’s had no issues shedding and eats really well. Polo will need a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow him to fully stretch out. He will require a thermal gradient of 28-30°c at the warm end and 20-24°c at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb should also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Polo or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

Marmalade

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Marmalade is a female corn snake that came into our care after a member of the public found him in their garden. Unfortunately, we were unable to trace her owners so he is now looking for a new home. She has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition.

Marmalade is a lovely snake. She is calm and easy to handle and has a lovely temperament. She eats well and has had no issues shedding. Like most snakes, she tends to hide in the day and come out in the evening. We know she explores at night as the following morning you can see the tunnels she’s made, burrowing in her aspen. Marmalade will eventually need a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow him to fully stretch out.

She is currently living in a vivarium half this length as young snakes can often become stressed in an environment which is too big for them. She will require a thermal gradient of 28-30°c at the warm end and 20-24°c at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb should also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Marmalade or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

 

 

Beans

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Beans is a roughly 1 year old female milk snake that came into our care via one of our inspectors after being picked up as a stray. Unfortunately her owners couldn't be located and she is now looking for a new home.   The first things you notice about Beans are her stunning colours and markings. She is an extremely pretty snake who has become a firm favourite with our staff. Beans  is the very first milk snake we have had here at the adoption centre.  

Beans can often be found in her cave just chilling and every now and then she pops her little head out of the hole to see what is going on in the world. Beans is a great snake but can be a little jumpy when out of her viv. She has a lovely temperament and with regular handling we think she will calm down nicely.  

Beans will eventually need a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow her to fully stretch out. She is currently living in a vivarium half this length as young snakes can often become stressed in an environment which is too big for them. She will require a thermal gradient of 26-30°c at the warm end and 21-24°c at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb should also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Beans or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk


 

 

 

 

Onyx

Watch a video of Onyx here!

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Onyx is a lovely 18 month old male king snake who came into our care after being found as a stray. Unfortunately, we were unable to trace his owners so he is now looking for a new home. Onyx has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition.

As a typical king snake, Onyx is a little feisty and head strong. He is still only very young and would benefit from an experienced owner and regular handling. Like all king snakes, Onyx loves his food! He has never missed a single feed. For the right owner, we are confident that Onyx will make a wonderful pet. Onyx is a very active snake, he's always doing laps of his vivarium, making tunnels in his aspen bedding and wrapping himself around his branches.

Onyx will need a minimum vivarium size of 120cm long x 40cm wide x 40cm deep. He will require a thermal gradient of 30-32°c at the warm end by using a guarded basking heat lamp, a 60-100 watt reptile heat lamp pointing downwards is ideal. At the cool end it will require a temperature of 22-26°c. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb must also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Onyx or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk
