The black corn snake is a recessive anerythristic mutation which is a lack of red coloration. This makes the snake black and white in appearance. Therefore, they are also commonly known as an anery corn snake. Our baby black corn snakes for sale are captive and born. Each one has been fed multiple times before being available for sale. They are feeding on both live and frozen thawed pinky mice on a regular once a week schedule.
You will receive a card with your shipment that details information about your new pet. This includes the date of birth, feeding schedule and the food item for every black corn snake we sell. At XYZReptiles we do carry a variety of corn snakes that can be found in our corn snakes section.
Corn snake care is the same for every baby we sell regardless of the color and pattern mutation. Our suggestion for keeping baby corn snakes happy and healthy is to start with a small ten-gallon terrarium. Once set up you can use our baby corn snake habitat to get everything you need for the inside of the terrarium.
This includes a small under-tank heating pad, a hide spot, a water bowl, bedding, moss, a decorative vine, a digital thermometer, and a collapsible snake hook for safe handling of your new pet. When your box arrives, you need to let your baby black corn snake adjust to its new environment before handling it. This can take from 2-5 days depending on the individual snake.
Black Corn Snake Care
Care for this corn snake morph is very similar to that of most other colubrids. We recommend keeping our baby black corn snakes for sale in a small terrarium equipped with a reptile heating pad. You can use either aspen bedding or coconut bark bedding for the enclosure. Use either a small hide spot and a small water bowl or maybe the water bowl and hide combination that we offer.
Another item that all reptile tanks need is a digital thermometer to assess the temperature for safety. You can find all these products in our corn snake habitat. Finally baby corn snakes need a meal of a frozen thawed pinky or fuzzy mouse every 4-7 days. They have a high metabolism and therefore need more meals than a boa or python would.
