$185 · Andy the corn snake

Andy joined our family in July of 2014. At the time he was 18 inches long and eating pinky mice. That should make Andy roughly 7 years old now, he's much larger, and he eats large adult mice. My daughter's interest in keeping a snake has waned, and we've agreed that it might be time to find someone who would appreciate Andy more.

Right now Andy has a tank that is 30"x12"x13". It has a screen top, and I have an Exo-Terra canopy top that isn't really meant for this type of tank, but it works fine. There is an under tank heater, thermometer, water dish, and two hides. I'm not sure how Andy manages to cram himself into the skull, but that's absolutely his favourite hide. When he's getting ready to shed, a bit of water in the larger hide gives him the opportunity for a good soak without messing up his water dish.

Andy is a healthy snake and he eats very well. He can be handled, although he's not handled very often right now. He is timid, but he can be coaxed out if you're patient. If he's hungry though, he's suddenly interested in everything you're doing close to his tank.

We are all still fond of Andy, and it's important to us that he receives good care in a new home. So the first thing I want to know about a prospective buyer, is whether or not they have any experience keeping snakes? If you don't, are you willing to do some research, perhaps buy a book or two, and seek advice when needed? Do you understand why a captive corn snake should only be fed previously frozen mice, and would you commit to only doing that?

$200 for the entire setup including everything in the photos as well as remaining water treatment and a telescoping snake hook. If you already have a suitable habitat or an empty tank and you want to negotiate to leave out whatever you don't need, I'm open to offers.

If you cannot demonstrate the knowledge and willingness to properly care for a corn snake, I will wait for a buyer who can. It's a pretty low bar, they aren't difficult.
