Kopstein’s Bronzeback (Dendrelaphis kopsteini) with its distinguishing orange-red coloration of the back of its neck and best seen when it expands its neck region. A diurnal and arboreal snake that feeds largely on lizards and frogs. It is able to grow up to 1.5m long. Love the colors as well:) another bronzeback that night.

Hate the heat pits snakes have in their face. Super cool biologically, and very cool for snakes but absolutely repulsive to let my imagination handle in any way. Start visualizing humans with holes in their cheeks and that’s a Big No from me ladies.

here is lanna! for privacy reasons i looked up a picture of a girl that looks incredibly similar to lanna. her favorite color is green, she wants a pet snake ((which i can totally get behind!)), she likes conspiracy theories, hence the alien, she loves lum from the anime urusei yatsura, she likes doctor who, she likes the sound of keyboard typing, and she also really loves cats!

This is probably a long shot, but I figure I might as well try.

I’m a new snake owner with a baby corn snake. Her terrarium humidity is generally at around 30-31%, which is on the low end of the 30-50% range corn snakes are supposed to have. I’m trying to get the humidity higher, but I can’t seem to retain it. Misting only fixes the problem for a short time; an hour or so after misting the humidity is back down to 30-31%. A couple days ago I added a moist hide I made out of half a cardboard egg carton and wet sphagnum moss, but the moss seems to dry out really quickly (it’s still damp now after I soaked it and pressed out excess water this morning, about 8 hours ago), and the humidity of the terrarium is actually lower now, around 26%, like the moss is pulling moisture out of the air and making the problem worse. (I took the moist hide out for the time being.)

The terrarium is a 20 gallon, since she’s very small right now (she’ll get upgraded later as she grows). It’s a glass terrarium with a screen top; I’m currently trying blocking off half of that screen to try and retain some more humidity. Her water dish is shallow and broad, maybe 5-6 inches on a side. The substrate is aspen shavings, which from everything I’ve read is the substrate most people prefer for corn snakes. But it seems like aspen shavings should be kept pretty dry - am I wrong about that? Should I try keeping the aspen shavings slightly damp, or do I need to think about switching to a different substrate? (I’d rather not do that for the time being if I can avoid it, if only because I have an entire bag of aspen shavings I need to use up.) Is there something else I can do to raise the humidity? (Especially when she’s shedding - she’s not getting visibly close to shedding yet, but I want to preempt the problem because I know the humidity needs to be closer to 50% when a corn snake is shedding.)

Thank you for your time! I’m going to continue trying to research this on my own, but most of the answers I’m getting so far are things I’m already trying, so I thought I should ask reptilblr for help.
