Questions about Corns
 
Hello! I'm a newbie here. :D Here are some questions, thanks for your time.:)

1) Note that I'm from Malaysia and it's always hot here. I will love to take my snakes to parks for walks, and I'm choosing between Albino corns or just normal ones. So is UVB from the Sun Harmful for Albinos?

2)Can I handle them daily? Would they feel stress if I do? I heard some say we could only handle them one a week while some say we could handle them daily. I'm confused.

3)Would they feel stressed if I bring them out to chill with me often, like on the bed?

Thank you. :yesnod:

I can't answer the question about UVB and albinos (I hope someone can; I'm interested in knowing this), but I will say that here in the US, taking captive reptiles out in public is frowned upon. Many in the general public here have irrational attitudes toward reptiles, and we hobbyists try not to stoke the fires. Perhaps public attitudes are different in your part of the world.

Most snakes like corns tolerate daily handling and 'chilling' just fine. If the snake acts fearful, or defensive, or changes its eating habits, then reducing handling frequency might be a good idea. Note that giving a new pet time (weeks, at least) to settle into its new home is recommended before you start gradually increasing handling frequency and duration.

It is also important not to handle your snake on the day of feeding or for two days afterwards.
