    Hello my name is Ben and i was wondering if anyone has a trinket snake because i bought one recently and wanted to learn some information about them. Ive looked on some different websites but they all say different things and seeing as thou you guys own snakes youd know more about it.
    Thanks Ben:)

    Welcome to HCN! I occassionally see Trinkets around here but not very often. As Ken said they are pretty much treated like cornsnakes.

    Does any one know how many times i should feed it a week. The petshop said twice a week but i dont think ill trust them cause they told me other stuff that was completly wrong.
    Thanks Ben

    i think it depends on the size of the snake. i have 2 corns and a rosy boa and i feed them once a week. :) hope that helps some.

    I would say once a week. Most snakes that eat more often than that are those with higher metabolism rates (garter snakes) With the proper prey size you snake should be fine on a 6-7 day cycle.

    Once a week is fine. A mouse approximately the size of the snake at its widest point.

    No once a week. Snakes need a chance for their digestion to settle down a bit between feedings.
