Getting an exotic pet such as a corn snake might seem like a great idea, but before buying a corn snake ensure that you are prepared to commit your time, money and effort into raising a healthy, happy snake.
Corn snakes generally live for 12 to 15 years in captivity, but they can live for up to 20 years — that is a huge commitment. Will you be off to university in a few years? Are you likely to move house? Will you want children in the future? Think about everything and then think if you'll still be as committed to corn snake ownership as the initial enthusiasm you feel now.
