Does anyone know how long after feeding the corn snake you can handle it?

When the lump has disappeared, about 2 to 5 days

Is it normal for a corn snake to spend most of its time in its hides after eating?

Jip! Very normal. Some of my corns only come out about three days after eating, and when they do it is mostly at night or dusk. The only time I see my corns are when they come out looking for food, usually day three and four after the feed.

Is it normal for a young corn not to constrict their pray?

My corn snakes tail looks like that... she is a 1.2m monster female and is a happy healthy snappy member of the family...

My snakes tail looks like that because she had weight issues... i.e. mummy over fed her :oops: she went on a diet and is now in her proper weight range, but the tail is still the same.

if your snake is eating, pooping, shedding regularly and is showing no other signs of poor health... I wouldn't worry too much :)
Its just one of those things you keep an eye on and make sure it doesnt change...


Kind regards :-D
