I own a cornsnake named Akasha. I have had her for 5 years now. My friend & I got our cornsnakes at the same time from a pet store. Technically she's Akasha #2, the first snake I had was apparently sick & not doing well. Unfortunately I had to take her back & get a healthier snake. She was so small only measuring about 5 or 6 inches long and as thick as a pencil. Feeding her has always been amusing & a little gross. I may not enjoy handling a frozen dead mouse but she has to eat too. Watching her eat a mouse that looks too big somehow fits so easily in her mouth & Watching her work it down is so cool. I wish people were not so afraid of snakes. Technically Im not alloud to have her here so she has to stay hidden. At least until we get a house.
