Our cute pet Corn Snake exploring our garden
Photos of our Corn Snake Rex outdoors
Corn Snakes come from America where the weather is much warmer, so most of the time you should keep them in their temperature controlled vivariums for the safety and comfort. On rare very hot days (we don’t get many of those here in the UK) I do sometimes take Rex out into our garden to get some fresh air and to enjoy the sunshine on her skin. I would never advise leaving a snake of any kind outside as they are very vulnerable to attacks, especially when they have been brought up in captivity where they have no predators to worry about. Some people say animals like snakes and other reptiles shouldn’t be kept in captivity and I do completely understand why people feel that way, but I do take very good care of our Corn Snake. Her vivarium is a comfortable sized one, we actually tried her in a bigger one, but she really didn’t seem to like it, so went back to her normal one. She has a regular supply of suitable food and we have had her for about 17 years now, so we can’t be taking bad care of her, as they normally live 15 to 20 years.
