 Snake as a pet when I’m away from home?


I’ve been thinking about getting a pet corn snake.

What I was wondering was whether or not it would be possible to keep one fairly and not cruelly considering that I’m away from home for about 3 days a week on and off. To clarify, there’s always someone at my house but they’re unlikely to want to get their hands dirty handling it.

I’ve had a pet bearded dragon before and have done a fair amount of research about corn snakes. It’s mainly the fact that I’ll be away that concerns me.

Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated.

Kingsnakes since you don’t have to worry about misting. All ya need to do is change the water and your okay. I go visit my grandfather and I don’t worry about the snakes too much only the lizards but my mother is home to cut on/off the lights for me.

I agree, with a king you should be fine for a few days.

Let us know if you move forward!
