hello peeps
iv got two corn snake's 1 a snow corn the other an anatherystic, both snakes were hatched on the same day in oct 2007, now my anatherystic is around 3ft great feeder and just a brill snake, but my snow is around 1ft a fussy feeder and abit touch me not at times, with this info would anyone take a guess as to what sex they are and could this be why my snow is so fussy, i can sort out some pic's if needed.
Also what would be the best way of sexing if no one can tell from the size popping or probing, dont really want to do either but if i have got diff sex i need to seperate as they have always been housed together, any help would be great :D

if you have 1 that eats like a horse & is generaly active & "the ideal snake"
& you have another thats a fussy eater with an attitude ,
then the size difference is likely to just be down to the amount of food each has absorbed.
the attitude & lack of interest in feeding may be just down to that particular snakes demeanor or it could be an underlying illness .

as for sexing , probing is the best method & any reputable rep shop/breeder should be able to do this for you quite safely
popping is only really best done with very young snakes

thanks for the fast reply, the snow has always been the same from very young, she/he does seem to be healthy, it shed's well and eats great once you get it started.
do you think it would be best to put them in seperate housing becouse of the size diff?

personaly ive never been a fan of housing any snakes together ,
i know it is done by some folk & im not saying its wrong ,
its just something ive very rarely done .

if you house them seperately then you arent likely to find just 1 fat snake :whistle:
also if they are opposing sexes then the chances of immature beeding are reduced to zero too :wink:
