Cold Corn Snake?
So I just held my new cornsnake for a while, she is still quite skittish. I got her from the show last month and is my first snake. I noticed that when I picked her up, she was QUITE cold. Is this normal for her to be cold #1, and #2 for her to spend so much time in the cooler end of the tank. Seeing as I see these questions asked so much when someone is needing info, I'll just include them now.
2 corn snakes in 15 gallon.
1 male, 1 female (as told to me at the show)
approx 1 yr old (both)
Subtrate = coconut
1 uv light 2.0
1 75 watt heat light, hardly on as temps on warm side are consistantly 78-82
1 under tank heat matt (can't remember name atm)
Digital thermometer, sensor attached to glass just beside hide.
1 large water dish.... which she spends 90% of her time under.
Week one.... purchased on Sat....
Female (Nova) ate 2 pinkies
Male (Chili) got almost one down and then regurgitated it back up (I think I startled him, and I have a feeling that it was too big for him, hopper)
Nova gladely ate 2 large pinkies
Chili, in his own jolly time, ate 2 fuzzies
Heh! Hows that for a low down ..... Any thoughts?
