Marmalade

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Marmalade is a female corn snake around 18 months 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 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 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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Savannah

IDEAL FIRST SNAKE

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Savannah is a lovely female corn snake who is estimated to be over 2 years old. She came into our care after being picked up as a stray by a National RSPCA animal collection officer.  

Savannah 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, Savannah 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.  

Savannah 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.

Carrot

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Meet Carrot! Carrot is a 3 year old male corn snake. He came into our care via one of our inspectors over concerns for his welfare. Carrot was being housed with no heat or light, in a bare glass viv. When he arrived he was very underweight. Carrot has now gained weight, received a clean bill of health and is ready to find his forever home.  

The first thing you notice about Carrot is how handsome he is and his vibrant orange colour and super shiny scales. He can often be found in his cave just chilling and every now and then he pops his little head out of the hole to see what is going on in the world.  Carrot is a very laid back snake who loves exploring his surroundings and burrowing in his aspen. He is happy to be handled and enjoys time outside of the vivarium. Carrot would make an ideal first snake.    

Carrot 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 at the warm end and 20-24 at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a themostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb should be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Carrot or would like more information about him, 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 5yr old male corn snake that came into our care after his owner sadly passed away. He is a just over 4ft in length and is quite a chunk! His nick name is “The Beast”. Zeus has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition.

Zeus is a very strong willed snake and he’s not overly keen on being handled. Once he’s made up his mind  he doesn’t want to leave the viv, he will make his best efforts to stay there. He does love to explore his vivarium and is often found burrowing in the aspen or moving in between the branches. A large viv with lots of enrichment is a must to keep the beast entertained! Zeus would be better suited to someone with a bit of experience of snakes. He can be a bit fussy when eating but has no problems shedding.  

Zeus will require a vivarium with a 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

 

 

 

Hank

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Hank is a 2 year old bearded dragon that was picked up as a stray so he is now looking for his second chance at happiness! Hank was in a bit of a sorry state when he arrived in our care. He was underweight, lethargic and appeared to struggle to find the energy to move around. As we have no history on him, we can only assume it was a result of poor diet and environment in his previous home. After being examined by an exotic specialist vet and some much needed TLC from our team over the past few months, we are pleased to report Hank is now happy and healthy and ready to find a new family.

Hank is a quiet and friendly chap. He enjoys being out of his viv but also enjoys a quiet life and will happily just spend the day watching the world from the comfort of his basking log. Hank likes to sit on his log at the front of his viv, surveying the outside world and being generally nosy. Hank is fed on a variety of greens and live food. Locusts are by far his favourite but he is partial to a dubia roach when the mood takes him!

Hank 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 Hank or would like more information about him, 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.

Pumpkin

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Pumpkin is a colourful corn snake that came into our care as a stray after she found hiding in a gentleman’s garage Unfortunately our attempts to find her owner were unsuccessful. We estimate pumpkin to be around 1 year old. On entry she was found to have an abscess on her vent area. Pumpkin responded well to treatment. She has made a full recovery and is now ready to find herself a nice new home.  

Pumpkin 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.  

She eats well and has had no problems shedding. Pumpkin will make a wonderful first snake.  Pumpkin 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
