Kelloggs

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Kelloggs is a male corn snake that came into our care after being found curled up in a drawer during a shed clear out. Unfortunately, we have no history on him so his age is unknown. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet we believe him to be around 18 months old. 

Kelloggs has really beautiful and striking markings which make him really stand out. He is a very active snake and is always exploring his vivarium, climbing up his braches and burrowing in his aspen bedding. 

When he first arrived in our care, Kelloggs was a grumpy snake that didn’t enjoy being handled. However, after a couple of months with us, he’s much calmer and happy to be handled and enjoys being out of his vivarium. 

A snake approx 120cm will require a vivarium with 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 be provided.  Please note for young snakes a smaller vivarium will be required.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amber

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Amber is an adult female corn snake that came into our care after a member of the public found her wrapped around the U-bend of their kitchen sink! Unfortunately, we were unable to trace her owners so she is now looking for a new home. She is a just over 4ft in length and is quite chunky! Amber has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition.

Amber is a very strong willed snake, she’s not overly keen on handling but once she’s out she becomes much more tolerant. She loves exploring her branches before retreating to her rock cave for a time out. Amber would be better suited to someone with a bit of experience of snakes. She can be a bit fussy when eating but has no problems shedding.

Amber 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. 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 Amber or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pluto

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Pluto is a young corn snake that came in via our inspectors after being picked up as a stray. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet we believe he is around 18 months – 2 years old. He is a beautiful snake with a lovely temperament.

When Pluto initially arrived in our care he was very head shy and quite jumpy whenever we entered the vivarium. However, now he’s fully settled he is much happier around us and has shown us to have a nice calm temperament. He’s happy to be handled and is always well behaved during his weekly health checks!

Pluto will require a vivarium with a 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 be provided.

Dolores

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Dolores, or Dolly to her friends, is a lovely girl who came into our care via another branch of the RSPCA. We all adore Dolores, she's such a wonderful character, she will be a great family member!  
Upon admission she was examined by an exotic vet specialist and received treatment for coccidia. She has since been retested and now has a clean bill of health so is patiently waiting for a forever family to come her way! The vet estimated her age at 4 years old.

Dolly is one of life’s great eaters! It’s clearly evident by her rather large size! She will happily munch away on her live food whilst trying to ignore her greens. We offer her a daily selection of rocket, watercress, small amounts of pepper, celery or apple. Her two loves in life are eating and chilling on her log; she loves to spend her days basking in the rays!

Dolly will need 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 Dolores or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk


 

 

 

 

 

 

Copper

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Copper is a lovely corn snake that came into our care after his owner abandoned him when moving out of the property. It wasn’t until several weeks later that Copper was discovered by the landlord who returned to clean out the property and contacted the National RSPCA. 

After being examined by an exotic specialist vet we believe he is around 2 years old. Copper is a stunning caramel coloured snake. His unusual colouring makes it very hard to spot him in this vivarium and we often mistake him for a branch! 

He eats really well and is an active boy who enjoys burrowing in his aspen bedding and wrapping around the branches in his vivarium. He is happy to be handled and will be a great first snake.  

Copper will require a vivarium with 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 must also be provided.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Apollo

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Apollo is a juvenile male corn snake that came in via our inspectors as a stray. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet we believe he is around 6-8 months old. He is currently around 50cm in length and eats very well. 

The first thing you notice about Apollo is his tiny size! It’s easy to see how he’s ended up as a stray! He often gives us a fright in thinking he’s escaped again, when actually he’s just burrowed under his aspen bedding! Apollo will be an ideal first snake; he’s happy to be handled and enjoys time out of his vivarium. Whilst in his vivarium, he spends time burrowing in his aspen bedding and wrapping himself around branches. 

Apollo will eventually require a vivarium with length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow him to fully stretch out. He 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. 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 Apollo or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kaa

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Kaa is a lovely young royal python who came into our care after being found as a stray. Unfortunately, we were unable to trace her owners so she is now looking for a new home. Kaa is only 8 month and is 2ft in length, once she reaches adulthood she can grow up to 6ft so a vivarium large enough for her to strength out fully will be needed. Kaa has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition. As a typical royal python, Kaa is a very calm snake who is lovely to handle. She is a very head shy and therefore sensitive around this area.


At her current size Kaa will need a vivarium size of 90cm length x 40cm wide x 40cm. A royal python needs a vivarium which allows it to fully stretch out. They should be housed in an appropriate sized enclosure that is moved up as they grown in length. For example a 120cm long snake will need a minimum vivarium size of 120cm long x 40cm wide x 40cm deep.    Royals will become stressed in large open spaces therefore plenty of cover will be required.

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

 

 

 

 

 

Spyro

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Spyro is our resident cool dude! Spyro was transferred to us from another RSPCA branch. He is a laid back, confident boy who we estimate to be around 3 years of age. The first thing you notice about Spyro is that he’s a big handsome hunk! He has had a full health check by an exotic specialist vet and is a healthy and happy boy, now patiently waiting for a forever family to come his way and shower him with love and tasty bugs!

Spyro is happy to be handled and eats really well. He greets us with his smiling face every morning and will hop off his log to meet you at the bottom of the viv to see if it is feeding time! He is extremely partial to a dubia roach or two followed by some grated carrot as a treat!  Spyro has become a bit of a staff favourite due to his lovely nature and we know he’ll make a wonderful first beardie for those interested in homing these wonderful animals.

Spyro will need a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm, 60cm height and 60cm depth. 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 Spyro or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk
