:first time corn purchase, do corn's need places to climb or are they content without climbing. Also will corns eat live pinkie's or do they need to be frozen/thawed?


Frozen/thawed are the only way to go!! Feeding live pinkies are fine, however, as you move up in prey size, I would recommend only feeding F/T!!
The reasons are very well outlined by the post below by Duffy!!

As for something for the snakes to climb on, yes, a corn likes to climb, and should be afforded the opporunity if the enclosure will facilitate a large enough branch/limb. But this is not a must have item, so if you dont have something in the cage for them to climb on, no big deal.
Good luck and happy herping
