In winter, corn snakes hibernate in burrows below the frost line, but they may emerge to bask on warm days.What do corn snakes need?
Feeding When young, a corn snake will require one pink or fuzzy mouse every 6-7 days. As they grow, they will move on to adult-sized mice. Once older, corn snakes may feed less, and 7-14 days between feedings is not unusual.Do corn snakes bite humans?
Corn snakes are generally very docile, and even when they're not, their bites pose absolutely no threat to humans beyond the possible risk of infection. But even considering that, you're more likely to get a staph infection from a dog bite than a corn snake bite.
