I recently wrote a grant to get a new class pet. I was approved, and pet smart gave me $175 for the purchase of a pet snake and a starter kit. I ended up spending $80 for what would have easily cost me upwards of $200.

Her name is meadow, and she is a baby snow corn snake. She currently resides in my apartment, but will be relocated to my classroom after spring break.

My 4 year old is thrilled, and my 18 mo old is interested, too.

Dh is creeped out.

I would've loved to have had a pet snake as the class pet. Corn snakes are beautiful. One of the vet techs I work with has a mama and two babies.

Thanks!

She eats frozen pinkie mice right now. Two mice once per week.


She actually got loose yesterday in my apartment. Idk where she is, or how I will find her. I'm confident she will turn up, I just wish I knew where she was.


Quoting Marti123:

Great job with your grant writing!!



Do you have buy mice for it weekly?

We had a hamster in 5th grade.  I HATED that creepy awful thing.  Rodents and reptiles can stay FAR FAR FAR away from me.

My college roommate had a hamster.  It got out.  I literally cried for hours because it ran right toward me.  Yeah.  It's a phobia.

On the bright side, I take my doggy to work with me everyday.  :)

When DH and I bought our first home we had 6 acres of our own but were surrounded by nothing but acreage - no neighbors.  Anyway, we were mowing with our first ever brand new lawnmower, and the next thing you know pieces of snake are shooting out from underneath.

I nearly puked.

ME! I won't garden any more because I accidentally picked up a baby snake when cleaning some brush in our backyard when we first moved in. Thinking about it just freaks me out.

We had a hamster in college and I was devastated when he got out.

But I have cried real tears of sorrow over this tiny pink snake

I have 2 ball pythons in my house I love them and so does the family. One of ours got out almost 3 years ago and our heater broke. We couldn't find him any where but could hear him well a week later and coming in the house with a new snake we found him on top of his cage wrapped around his light (he knew where some heat would be) but there was no heat we shut it off after he got out. Well after that we got them a bigger cage and one they couldn't get out of.

So my advice for finding the little one just shut off ur heat for a few days it will show up

Yeah! Lol. They're not fans of snakes but they all want hamsters or lizards. Not in my lifetime!! LOL

The weird thing is that I was a tomboy & my cousin (boy) & I used to play with gardner (sp?) snakes. Not sure when or why the phobia kicked in.
