    My girlfriend's corn snake, I think the snake is about 10 years old now.
    Don't ask me what sex it is though :confused:

    Pics taken with Nikon D7000 a year ago.

    These are wonderful shots, although I think you've very slightly missed focus on the last one (his nose instead of his eye). Are these taken with flash?

    No without flash, but with a nikon d7000 50mm
    i had to focus quite close and i didn't have much time (animals tend to move)
    Also I learned a lot about photography the last year ;)

    I don't know how you guys can have a pet snake.:smile: As soon as i opened this up, there was that fleeting instant where i cringed from fear. Where I live in central Queenland we have the king brown and we are taught very young that snakes are bad. Once bitten from a king brown you don't have long to live if you don't get medical help. An agitated brown (if you are bushwalking and accidentally step on one) they move so fast it's unbelievable.

    Your snake looks really relaxed. If that were an Eastern brown it would have it's head reared up in an S shape with it's tongue lashing.

    What does this snake do. And what do you feed it?

    Interesting pictures

    Haha, it's my girlfriend who wanted one.
    I'm not scared of it but it just lives in his "cage"...
    It's not like a dog or cat that you can pet... :tongue:

    It eats one mouse a week (the real ones , not computer related ones) :smile:

    Beautiful colour. Good photos. It's funny how some people have a fear of snakes. I worked with a guy who as Fire Fighter was not afraid of much. Heights, Fires or tight smoke filled spaces didn't faze him but if a snake came on the TV he had leave the room.

    Very nice. The colors really came through. Corn snakes are very docile creatures. They're a perfect "first snake" for anyone just getting into keeping snakes as pets.

    How big is it now ?
    I remember there's a reptile lover stand in a local event last year and I spent probably almost an hour having snake coiling around me in that air conditioned room. (^-^)
    The non-venomous snakes are nice when docile and they move slowly. Much easier to pet than hot blooded animals or lizards.

    Still not confident enough to have one as full time pet
    Well, image of the devil and fatally poisonous snake that peoples often hear since their childhood could be one of the reason. :)

    I like the pics, but I'm wondering why you are sharing images taken with your Nikon here on this forum?
