Apnea treatment in a corn snake

Albino is a corn adder (Pantherophis guttatus). This type of not poisoned snakes is widespread in Central and North America. With their good character and attractive colors, corn snakes are ideal for a home-grown pet. They range from 1.2 to 1.8 meters, rarely exceeding 1.7 meters and 900 g. The average lifespan is 15-20 years. Optimum temperature limits for terrarium cultivation: daily 27 ° -30 ° C, nighttime 23 ° C. To ensure the required humidity, a bowl of water is placed under the heating lamp.

Albino holds her mouth open most of the time – apnea. It is connected with the inability to take air through the nostrils, which in its case are clogged. It has been in this condition for more than 1 year. Despite the apnea, Albino regularly eats and has no other signs of pain.

Causes of respiratory disease in snakes are most often: low temperature, increased humidity, overcrowding, stress.
