Many people have a fear of snakes, but there is no need to worry! Corn snakes are one of the most common types of pet snake. They can make great pets for adults and children alike, as long as you ask yourself these 11 questions before bringing one into your home. Are you an adult? Do you have children who can help take care of the snake? Are your other pets familiar with snakes or will they likely try to attack it? Can you afford a tank, heating equipment and light bulbs for at least one year before making a profit from selling the corn snake in order to cover these costs while also feeding it each day? Is there enough free space in your home for this type of pet such as a separate room where it can live alone without any disturbances by another animal like cats that may trigger its natural instinct to strike out or hide under furniture if given no place else to go when startled. Will anyone ever be left unattended around this pet such as babies sleeping on own couch during naptime? Do you or your family have any allergies to snake saliva that may cause a reaction when the corn snake sheds its skin? Can you afford to purchase these items below and set up this new environment before bringing it home? • Heating pad • Substrate such as newspapers, paper towels, tile, etc. *Snakes do not need baths so no water bowls should be purchased for them.* Will it stay inside of an enclosure at all times if allowed outside in order to keep cats and other pets from attacking it while also protecting itself by hiding under furniture or behind objects where humans cannot see it during playtime with children who are often unpredictable resulting in potential accidents like stepping on the pet causing harm through biting which is one reason why many families with small children usually do not keep pet snakes? Do you know the scientific name for corn snake, “Elaphe guttata”? Can you afford to feed it at least once a week depending on its size and age by purchasing pre-killed mice from the pet store or online that are three times larger than its head in order to prevent choking which is another reason why many families opt against owning this type of pet since one accident can cause serious injuries such as broken teeth if bitten during feeding time. Are any family members allergic to dust such as sneezing when opening an enclosure where there may be remnants inside like shed skin, dead prey items (mice) or feces? Do you have space inside your home for all
