Hi guys this is my first time posting on here as I'm new.

I have a year and 3 month old sunkist corn and she's about 3ft in length. she is currently in a 3x1x2 viv roughly, would i need to put her in a bigger viv when she get fully older or could i keep her in this one that i have now as she seems very happy in there so far.

Another quick question she seems very slender for her length however she isn't skinny and under weight. do i just have a naturally thin snake or will she bulk up over time?

It depends how big she will grow, for now, 3foot is more than enough. When she's fully grown, you might find it's a bit small if she gets over 3.5 foot, and 4 foot Viv would be better.

Don't worry about her looking thin, yearlings and 2 year olds seem to grow in length first, and then they bulk up later. From what I can see in your picture, she looks in nice condition :-)

One mouse per week of the same girth as your corn should maintain a healthy weight.
