Corny McCornsnake

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Corny McCornsnake is a lovely male amel corn snake that came in via our inspectors as a stray. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet we believe he is around a year old.

He is currently around 80cm in length and eats very well.  Corny McCornsnake is an ideal first snake. He’s really laid back and happy to be handled. He can usually be found snoozing in his humid hide – it’s by far his favourite spot! He enjoys time out of his vivarium and will often head towards a pocket or dark sleeve just to keep you on your toes!  Corny McCornsnake 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 Corny or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Callisto

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Callisto or Callie to her friends is a young corn snake that came into our care via one of our inspectors, after being picked up as a stray.

Unfortunately we have been unable to trace her previous owner so we are now looking for a new home where Callie can be adored. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet we believe she is around 11 months old.

Callie is a beautiful snake with a lovely temperament and is very happy to be handled. She is a little nosey and as soon as she suspects someone is near her vivarium her little head pokes out to see what’s going on.

During our daily clean, Callie will come over to say hello and makes it quite tricky to continue cleaning. After a short handling session where she can have a little explore she is happy to go back inside her vivarium. Callie is health checked weekly and is always impeccably behaved.

Callisto will require a vivarium with a 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 be provided

If you are interested in adopting Callie or would like more information about her, 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 a chunky girl! 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 so when you pick her up she pulls away from you but once she realises she’s coming out of her vivarium she’s much happier. She is a nosy girl and loves exploring her surroundings. She loves wrapping herself around the branches in her viv before retreating to her rock cave or humid hide 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 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 1 year 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.  He is a stunning looking snake and after a shed his scales take on a beautiful iridescent sheen. 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.


At his current size Onyx will need a vivarium size of 90cm length x 40cm wide x 40cm . He should be housed in an appropriate sized enclosure that is moved up as he grows in length. For example a 120cm long snake 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 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 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. 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.
