Often found in the terrarium, the Grain Snake owes its popularity to its gentle disposition, ease of breeding and interesting color variants.

Which terrarium for the Corn Snake?

Reptiles are relatively delicate animals and sensitive to mites, fungi and mold, therefore the material for the terrarium should be resistant to moisture and allow for cleanliness as well as easy and effective disinfection. The Grain Snake terrarium needs to be kept clean to avoid respiratory infections, parasites and more. A waterproof PVC terrarium that does not absorb moisture, is easy to clean and has no pores, which does not create a friendly environment for fungi and mites, will be perfect. A horizontal type terrarium, i.e. longer than tall, will work perfectly, check here which terrarium for a corn snake is suitable.

Dimensions of the terrarium for the Corn Snake

The length of the corn snake terrarium should be about 2/3 of its length, and the width of 1/3. The minimum dimensions of the terrarium are therefore usually 80x40x40 cm (in the case of an adult specimen of average length). However, if we decide to breed 2 individuals, it should be larger.

Corn Snake what terrarium?

The Corn Snake naturally lives in forested areas in a variety of climates. It can be found both in dry and steppe areas, as well as in humid rainforests. He loves to climb trees and swim. The construction of a terrarium for a corn snake is therefore intended to provide it with conditions as close as possible to those it enjoys in nature. It is worth providing him with a pool of water and roots, plants and shelves for climbing. The corn snake does not require exposure to the UVB lamp, because it obtains vitamin D3 from food. He also needs a dark place in the terrarium. Taking this into account, you can completely resign from lighting, especially if the terrarium is heated with a mat or heating cables.
