Only thing I have to say is that Im happy they finally have viable offspring. Worked for a breeder back in 04 and every baby that was born was either dead or kinked. And when I say kinked I mean to the point where they can not stretch out

I agree 100%. On a totally OT note, it makes me wonder about the "silky" beardies I saw at Saturday's show here. I was told you have to soak them every other day and rub lotion on them at least once a week, which is definitely not something you'd normally do with a beardie (to my limited knowledge). Anyone know if that's the case with these snakes, too? I guess it's important to keep their skin from drying out; just looking at them, it's easy to see how they could be more susceptible to dehydration and/or damage.

That said, they are completely wicked-looking. I'm not generally a corn person but I'd consider having a scaleless one if I could be assured that it wasn't the equivalent of buying, say, a spider ball with a wobble or a pug dog with asthma. Certain traits we breed for can so easily cause unintended/undesirable health results (unexpected, as with the spider balls, or expected, as with dogs that have no snout to speak of).

That should have read, "with normal beardies."

With respect to the OP's intended question: hard to tell. There is always a faction that seeks out "freaks" (two-headed snakes, etc.) and this might appeal to them. Hard to see how scaleless corns would gain widespread appeal much beyond that. They're expensive (at least for now) and probably somewhat higher-maintenance than the average corn. And one of the big appeals for corn fans is corns' general hardiness and ease of care. IMHO.

As far as their care... When I was taking care of them, there was no special care. They were kept on newspaper (obviously you dont want them on Sani-Chips). And we never did anything extra with them, just made sure that there was always water and misted them once a week. Oh and all their food had to be pre killed...

This would be different care compared to the norm...

Honestly, I like scaleless reptiles. I think the "constant pain" is pretty far fetched and unsubstantiated, since these animals do thrive if taken care of properly. I can see dehydration and perhaps sunburn (?) being an issue for certain species (such as bearded dragon silkies), but other than that, I don't think it's much different than having a hairless rat, cat, or naked bird.
hey bro didnt mean to offend, i didnt feel i was getting ornery toward steph. her responce had nothing to do with my ?, ill get into more detail later but all her i cant back them up studies just drives me nuts, also I have a cple people i deal with on a daily basis that i can ask a ? and imediatly the whole topic is out in left feild somewhere, that annoyes the crap outta me because my ? was very specific are they going to be as big as other morphs or not? . I didnt and still dont want to hear good faith garbage, someone wants to disscuss good faith please start your own thread
'


And to whom every the sissy is that has to post there politically correct anoynomous crap on my profile, IMO pollitically correct is what is wrong with this country, regaurdless if you gotta hide and be anoynomous keep your worthless opinion to yourself(im sure ill get 10 of them now lol)


pics are oin my other puter but i bought one last night ill post some pics

Dehydration and sun as of yet i cannot comment on, I guess my ? would be who cares about the sun cause if you own one for a pet why would it be exposed to amounts of sunlight that would be problematic?

constant pain i can tell you is horse shit, i spent all night last night looking at and photographing all the scaleless corns at BHB, I looked through all his adults, babies etc and after looking at his collection i can assure you thew constant pain this is nonsense someone made up for their own reasons(most likel PETA)

Now if these studies were to find that these animals were healthy and happy, I'd love to own one. More needs to be known about them first before any more selective breeding is done in my opinion.
ahh yes and this is exactly why i hate it when people post NONSENSE they cant back up

someone postyed a paper completly contridictes triplemoons dehydration thing but triplemoon says its bologna cause its from 70s but still has nothing to back it up, if you posted something on a forum a yr or two ago to me it was seem easy enouvgh to go through your history and find it,whatever

You were acting like a jerk, plain and simple. That was all moot as everyone had let it go, yet two weeks later you bring your same BS back to the table?

I have thousands of posts over on Cornsnakes.com. You expect me to go through three years of post history to find it? I'm afraid I don't have that kind of free time. Since apparently you do, why don't you go on over and run the searches (I believe it was a PDF)? That was why I said where I had posted it several years ago...So that anyone interested could look the information up for themselves.

Yes, seriously. If you can't keep them on aspen, cypress mulch or any other fibber material, yes, that's not normal. What exactly don't you comprehend about that?

Honestly, your posts are so difficult to decipher I don't know how to take half of what comes from your keyboard.
