Enclosure36x18x18 inches (90x45x45 cm) is the minimum requirement for an adult snake and a tank
48x24x24 inches (120x60x60 cm) is ideal. Younger snakes should be kept in smaller vivariums and hatchlings in plastic
kritter keeper type tanks.
SubstrateReptile bark makes an ideal substrate for adult corn snakes. Juveniles can be kept on kitchen towel
HumidityCorn snakes enjoy moderate humidity, if it is too high this could lead to respiratory problems.
TemperatureThe hot end of the tank should be between 80-90 F (25-30) during the day and night time temperatures should
not fall below 65 F (18 C)
LightingA standard spot light at the hot end of the tank is sufficient. Corn snakes like most other snakes
do not need ultraviolet light.
