    I have a few cornsnakes and love them, so i recently decided to rescue another. I got him from a guy who didn't know how to care for the snake. He got the snake as an impulse buy almost two years ago and has only been feeding him every couple months. Thankfully the snake has survived and seems to be doing very well. He's a voracious eater and I have him on a regular schedule now. He's very docile and has seemingly no issues despite his last owners ignorance. The only thing I am curious about is his size. When I got him he was only slightly larger than a hatchling. I've had him about three months now and I can see a difference in his size, but he's nowhere near where he should be at two years old. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with taking care of underfed snakes and what his chances are for getting up to a proper adult size.

    Generally malnutrition stunts everything that grows. I'm not to sure on snakes but I'm sure someone else will chime in too.
