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 around 12-18 monthd old; she 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 but she can be a little feisty around feeding time and has been known to mistake a finger for food! She eats really well and has had no issues shedding. Marmalade would probably suit an experienced owner that is used to snakes with a bit of character!
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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bhaji

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Bhaji is a lovely female corn snake who is estimated to be around 18 months – 2 years old. Bhaji was discovered by a restaurant owner in a sack of onions! After being examined by an exotic vet specialist Bhaji was found to have a wound which was probably caused by a bite during her time as a stray. This required daily treatment of applying cream and after her first shed it has very much improved. There is a small amount of scar tissue which causes her no issue and since she has shed in full, it has aided the healing of the wound.

Bhaji is a wonderful snake who is very calm during handling and would make an ideal first time snake.  Once she's out she loves to explore and seeks solace in pockets and sleeves, so be prepare yourself comfortably as she may be there for some time! Inside her vivarium, Bhaji likes to hide and can usually be found curled up inside her cave, occasionally popping her little head out to see what is going on in the world.

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


 

 

Skittles

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Skittles is a colourful female corn snake of around 1 year old. She came into our care having been picked up as a stray. Unfortunately our attempts to find her owner were unsuccessful so she is now looking for a new home. Skittles is a friendly girl who loves being out of her vivarium and exploring new surroundings. She has a lovely calm temperament and is happy to be handled. In her vivarium 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. She eats well and has had no problems shedding

Skittles will require a vivarium with length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow her to fully stretch out.

Beans

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Beans is a roughly 6 month 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
