That is pretty interesting. How'd you construct it?

Nope. Im still wondering how they make them. Ive seen him put his head under but thats about it. He must be doing this at night.

Oooh, I was confused. I was under the impression it was a feature you designed into the viv. I didn't realize it was a burrow he dug himself. That's way more interesting.

Interesting indeed. I'm not a fan of colubrids, I have never owned a corn snake. But if the substrate holds its structure like that Is there a chance it may be to wet? Nice snake nonetheless. Thanks for sharing.

The substrete is pretty dry on top. How ever it is moist at depth as most natural substrates are but it is not at all soaking wet.

I did that with my water snakes and they made tunnels all over the place. It was particularly cool when they made them against the glass!

Do you ever destroy it so he can make new ones and to aerate the substrate at all?
