Caring For Your Corn Snake
Make an egg laying box for the female corn snake. The egg box should have moist substrate in it. Damp spaghnum or peat moss works great.The female usually lays eggs 30-45 days after breeding. Most will have a pre-lay shed after breeding, then lay eggs 7-14 days after the shed. Make sure you have the egg laying box in her home in plenty of time. Once in a while, a corn snake will lay her eggs right before the pre lay shed. If the eggs aren't laid in an area with moist substrate, they will dry up quickly. Oh... one other thing... the female may or may not refuse food during the weeks before laying.
