Marmalade

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Marmalade is a female corn snake around 18 months to 2 years old. She came into our care after a member of the public found her in their garden. Unfortunately, we were unable to trace her owners so she 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 has developed a great temperament since coming into our care. When she first arrived, it was clear she hadn’t been regularly handled but now she’s much more chilled out and quite happy to be out of her vivarium. Marmalade is an inquisitive snake and she’ll always head for the nearest jacket or trouser pocket when you have her out for handling. 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 loves her food!

She eats really well and has had no issues shedding. Marmalade will 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 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zeus

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Zeus is a 5 year old male corn snake that came into our care after his owner sadly passed away. He is a just over 4.5ft in length and is quite a chunk!  Zeus has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition. 

When Zeus arrived, he was a feisty boy that wasn’t used to being handled and wasn’t happy when you entered his vivarium. Fast forward a few weeks and Zeus is a totally different snake! We can clean his viv with no issues and he’s happy and inquisitive when handled.  He does love to explore his vivarium and is often found burrowing in the aspen or moving in between the branches so a large viv with lots of enrichment is a must to keep him entertained! 

Zeus is a strong willed snake and due to his size he would be better suited to someone with experience of snakes, that will continue to handle him on a regular basis. Zeus will require a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm x a height of 40cm and a 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 must also be provided.

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

 

 

 

Tango

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Tango is a beautiful juvenile female corn snake around 1 year old. She came into our care from a multi-animal household where the animals were all in poor, cramped conditions and sadly their needs were not being met. Tango has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and has been given a clean bill of health and is now looking for a new home.

The first thing you notice about Tango is her vibrant blood orange colouring, she is a gorgeous snake. She can be a little bit feisty around feeding times but she’s still young and has definitely calmed with regular handling and a good feeding routine. She eats and sheds with no issues. Tango loves climbing up the branches and leaves in her vivarium and can usually be found curled up in her humid hide.

She will eventually require a vivarium with 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 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 Tango or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

Athena

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Athena is a 3 year old female corn snake who was picked up by an inspector after being abandoned in a property. Athena was found hiding under a rug and had been without proper care for around six weeks!

Athena is quite a strong willed snake and she’s not overly keen on being handled.  She does love to explore her vivarium and is often found burrowing in the aspen or moving between hides. Athena would benefit from regular handling to help her to rebuild her trust in people. We think an experienced owner would suit her best.

Athena will require a vivarium with a length of 120cm x a height of 40cm and a 40cm, which will allow her to fully stretch out. 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 must also be provided.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frankie

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Meet Frankie, our resident Olympian!  From leaping off his log to climbing in the plants, this guy’s energy is endless! His favourite spot to sit is in his water bowl, which he seems to think is a swimming pool and will jump in and splash around! Frankie is no doubt full of character and will keep his new family entertained with all his antics.  

Frankie came into our care as his owner could no longer cope with meeting his needs. Upon admission we found an issue with his mouth and a small lump on his back. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet, Frankie was diagnosed with gingivitis and an infection in his mouth due to receded gums. Following some treatment and TLC, we are happy to report that Frankie is now in good health and ready to find a new home. The vet has advised that his new adopter will need to monitor his gums and give them an occasional clean with a wet cotton bud to ensure no debris is stuck in them. The small lump was an abscess which has now healed. 

Frankie greets us with his mischievous little face each morning and is keen to watch what’s going on. In his previous home, Frankie was fed largely on mealworms so we have been working hard to transition him into eating a wider variety of food. He will happily eat hoppers and is slowly learning to eat some greens. 

Frankie will require a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm, 60cm height and 60cm depth will be required. There needs to be a thermal gradient of 38-42 at the warm end and 22-26 at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat and a 10-12% UV bulb must also be provided.

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

 

 

 

Emma

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Emma is a lovely 2 year old leopard gecko that came into our care after she was found in a school playground. She was underweight when she arrived, but after some much needed TLC we can happily say she’s up to her ideal weight and is ready to find a new forever home. She has had a full health check from an exotic specialist vet, including a faecal test for internal parasites, and has been given a clean bill of health.

Emma is a sweet little gecko. As a crepuscular species, most active at dawn and dusk, she spends most of her day inside her cave but we will occasionally see her moving from hide to hide and she will pop her little head out to reveal her naturally smiley face.   Emma was a little skittish when she first arrived but is now much calmer and is happy to be handled! Meal time is a favourite of Emma’s and he has been feeding well on a diet of small crickets each evening.


Emma  will need a vivarium with a length of 60cm x height 40cm x width 30cm. There needs to be a thermal gradient of 28-30°c at the warm end and 24-26°c at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled by using a thermostat. A 2-7% UV bulb must also be provided.

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

 

 

Sunkist

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Sunkist is a beautiful female corn snake that was found in a member of the public’s roof. There had been several sightings of her, but she evaded capture for a few months!  Unfortunately, we were unable to trace her owners so she is now looking for a new home. She has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is underweight but otherwise healthy. Sunkist is a lovely, chilled out snake. She is very inquisitive and can usually be found wrapping herself around the branches in her vivarium or making tunnels in her aspen bedding.

She eats well and has no issues shedding. She’ll make a great scaly friend for someone! Sunkist will 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 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.
