Rescue Mission, help please

An acquaintanceof mine recently gave me his cornsnake citing the reason that he could no longer properly care for her. She is just under a year old and i feel that she is very small for her age, i attached a pic just after feeding her an extremely small pinky.

Should I increase the frequency of feedings to 2 per week or perhaps every time she defecates?

Also, what morph is she?

thanks

I would try and get her to eat every 4 days until she has put on some size. She looks to be a very attractive anerythristic motley. Too dark to be a ghost. Make sure the poor girl/boy has plenty of fresh water. Good Luck!

Pretty little anery motley girl, she is.

I agree, I'd feed her an appropriate sized meal every 4-5 days.

I'd be offering her food every four days, and offering a second small pinkie if she took the first.

Anery or Anery Motley. Cute little thing. Good luck with her, and kudos for giving her a better home.

That is not uncommon with cornsnakes, especially hatchlings. I do not handle cornsnakes frequently under 100 grams in weight, I prefer not to stress them out. However, once she is settled in and eating on a schedule for you, their is no reason why you can not get her out for 10-15 minutes a day for handling.
