Corn snakes are really easy pets...
I would say they are easier to care for than hermit crabs.

Tell your mom that!
Hope this helps!

Few pics of the Leopard tort kids, Tikii is the tiny cream and black colored baby, hes had a ruff go he has what we call in the reptile world "Failure To Thrive Syndrom" alought he has his good days and bad days he is now doing better and finaly starting to gain some weight, Javari is the little piggy of the bunch and very outgoing hes the high white beautiful pattern baby.
Our newest baby "Kitwana" high black Leopard tort baby will be home soon and i will post pics as soon as he/she arrives.

Pics of them outside eating clovers and wandering around.
Image

Tiny Tikii found a tiny patch of sand and was sniffing it. :lol:
Image


This is Javari, looking super beautiful nice smooth shell and showing off that awsome looking upside down butterfly design just above his butt LOL!!
Image

Hmmmm wonder whats over there time to explore.
Image

One more shot of that beautiful pattern.
Image

and a pic of them together was weighing them on the scale and put them both up there for a quick pic, you can clearly see how much more smaller Tiny Tikii is compared to Javari.

Do you keep them in a pen of some sort or do you just let them wander and follow them around? They are really beautiful. I have a friend who comes up the mountain at the weekends and she has left her tortoise up here assuming that I will keep an eye on her (which we do!) Trouble is I don't know a lot about tortoises e.g. what is best for them to eat etc. so am just playing it by ear at the moment. Have discovered that apart from the normal lettuce, dandelion leaves (which she is not to keen on), she is mad on cucumber, borage, and rasberries. Strawberries not so much. I just love all animals whatever shape or form they come in, but always like to be informed as to their needs before assuming a responsibility. Will get a photo of her tomorrow and post it along with our "babies". In the meatime this is Tiggy, my namesake, who we lost last year with kidney failure...........

Dang, I thought hat was a mountain lion at first glance. I lost a cat a couple of years ago to kidney failure, as well.
I'm pet-less currently but have dibs on a four year old thoroughbred mare when she leaves the race track, as long as she's not a valuable broodmare (which I doubt).
