Daniel,
13 years a ripe old age for a corn snake, especially one which has been breeding year in and year out. (if in fact yours has). Shaking in reptiles is oftem a sign of possible hypocalcemia, however, i rarely see it in snakes, mostly in lizards.Another possibility is that its a nurological disorder, or lack of nervous function. You can always take it to the vet, but i think you just have an old snake, not to be terse. I would try smaller meals which have been pre-killed, she may have an easier time with it.
