Look what I got yesterday!

Some girl found this snake in her basement covered in dryer lint a few weeks ago. She was going to keep it but she couldn't get it to eat. I got it, a practically new 10 gal tank, light hood, water dish, hide rocks etc for $10. She only wanted $5 but I gave 10 just to be fair.

He's really pretty. I'm thinking he is a male by the look of his tail but don't have a way to check to be sure. He's a really pretty gray with dark brick red marking.

I believe we will be naming him Schroeder.

I love eastern milks! I ended up with one a few years ago under similar circumstances, it was found in a friend's sisters garage in February. I kept him until spring was completely set in and let him go in an area where I have found more of them.

I've never seen one around here. She said she took it to a pet store and they told her it was a corn snake. She sent me that picture and I never questioned the corn snake theory until I saw it in person. I tried to feed it a f/t pinky today... even brained it but he still refused it. I happened to have nightcrawlers in the fridge so am trying them as we speak. I'm thinking that he would probably take a live pinky but I won't have one of those for a week or so.

It will probably turn it's nose up at the crawler, but I'm sure it won't hurt it to wait a week for a live pinky.

I had a student bring me one of those "cornsnakes" as well. They do look very similiar, but that is an Eastern Milksnake, like the previous poster mentioned. It will darken with age. Good luck getting it to eat.
ps) You might want to check the legality of keeping it.

It's legal in Michigan to keep them, as long as it's not harvested for commercial purposes, no worries.
