Hahaha, considering how cheesy this was, I haven't laughed this hard all day.
Corn Snakes are good. That was the first snake I ever had. Corn Snakes can sometimes be a little nippy though... it takes time and patience to get them to stop.
I could have went even cheesier with " Whats is Kernel without Corn? Cracked"
Oh man, that's great!
Oh, yeah that feeding issue also gets to me. My water snake is on a feeding strike at the moment, hasn't eaten in about a month and it's really scaring me!
It could be stress.
Oh dear! Its starting to get deep in here!
I didn't think so because I hadn't changed anything at all to do with his care! Well I put some fish in his tank before I left home for dinner and he kind of pecked at them but made no real effort to eat them, but I left them in there anyway and when I came back two out of three were gone, so I'm not sure what was going on there. At least he ate but now I don't understand that half-hearted pecking! He normally strikes right away. Hopefully it's nothing to be worried about.
Did you ever address the temperature drop issue?
Yes I did! But that didn't work either. I'm wondering now if I haven't been letting the fish thaw out enough lately, because although he did eat, he didn't eat it right away. I'm not sure exactly how long the fish was in his tank before he ate though.
Are you saying that you are putting the fish in the water still frozen? If so that might be part of the issue.
No, I always thaw them but I store all the fish and fish pieces in one container, so I guess the longer I keep them the more frozen they get and the more time they need to thaw. I'm not SURE that's the issue, but it's definitely something I will keep in mind during future feedings!
LOL! Y'all guys seem to know me well.
That one had me cracking up, lol!
