Life span: 10-20 years
Housing: A wooden vivarium is a great and popular choice for accommodation, for a hatchling/yearling a vivarium of 61x38x20cm is fine and for an adult a vivarium of 120x60x60cm is great however corn snakes also do very well in tubs (70ltr tubs are recommended with lots of enrichment/decor) either accommodation will work and both will need a spot clean everyday and a full clean once a month. At least two hides, some enrichment, logs and rocks will also be needed to create the perfect environment!
Substrate: Corns do well on dry substrates such as Aspen or Lignocel (my personal favorite).
Heating: With corns either a heat bulb or a heat mat can be used, if a bulb is used then a protective cage should be used to prevent burns. The warm side should be around 26-30c, the cool side should be between 23-25c and a thermostat should always be used to keep the temps under control.
UVB/Lighting: Corn snakes do not necessarily need UVB however if used it can be beneficial and wont do any harm. In regard to lighting no additional lighting will be needed, just place the animal near some natural light to ensure they have a day/night cycle and if you do use added light or UV then switch them off at sunset and on again at sunrise to allow this natural cycle.
Humidity: Corn snakes are low humidity animals and their environments are more arid however they will need misting once or twice a month to keep a small amount of humidity and a shed box full of moss should be used to aid sheds.
Diet and Water: Corn snakes are very easy to feed, they are good eaters and the base diet consists of mice (the size depends on the age/weight/size of the snake), the occasional rat and day old chicks can also be used. A large water bowl is needed, it should be big enough for the snake to curl into to aid shed and keep them hydrated.
Housing Together: While some people do keep corns together and have sometimes successfully done so it is not worth the risk to the animals and it is not a natural behavior which can cause stress, keeping these animals separate is always the safer, better option.
