Corn Snake Care Sheet?
Okay guys, due to much help from everyone here on Yahoo Answers, I have finally began my quest to setting up an environment for a corn snake! I went to a buncha pet stores today, played with a buncha Amelenistic (spelled wrong xD) corn snakes, they were all beautiful and friendly. Here is what I have on my care sheet list... 29 Gallon Aquarium with Locking Screen Top Aspen Bedding Spray Bottle 1 or 2 Hides 2 Thermometers. 1 Hygrometer? Water Dish Feeding Tongs BULK Pinkies Mini-Fridge/Freezer for the pinkies/fuzzies etc.. (and some sodas ;) ) Sterilite/Rubbermaid bin for feeding What kind of light/heating equipment should I get? And do these tools have certain settings on them for which I can just follow the instructions to the heat I need for my guy? UVA/UVB bulb ? Heating mat? I do not completely get all that, so any elaboration on that would be fantastic!! Am I missing anything important?! If so please tell! I am going to buy all of this in one big bulk shopping spree so the sooner, the better! ** IMPORTANT ** Can I travel with my snake? I intend on buying it in Delaware, where they have more selection of corn snakes, and bring him up to New Jersey, where I live...can the car ride be harmful to him? Temp changes/stress? Or anything? Thanks guys/girls I really appreciate all your help in helping me home a corn snake!! He will be a baby corn snake, so will 29 gallons be too big to start him off in? Will he feel insecure or whatever?

You need a UVA/B bulb, tropical. (exoterra bulbs are good). For a 29 gallon you'll probably only need a 13 watt. You can set the lamp on top of the tank touching no plastic... More
