I now have one of the most expensive Snow corns around. I put the 2 babies in the viv together, no-one told me not to, and Snow ate Foggy!!
I now have a £25 Snow Corn whose first meal here cost £25! Me is not a happy bunny.

Awwwww bummer Cathy Emotion: sad
I've heard of it happening before but for some reason I thought it wasn't likely with snakes who are actually eating properly. I thought corns only ate each other when there was no ample food supply.

Poor Foggy. What a way to go! Emotion: sad

I've only heard of baby corns eating each other. All my older ones haven't had a problem.
I think its because baby corns are constantly hungry. They view anything that moves as food. This also includes littermates. In the wild, when they hatch, typically they go their separate ways, but sometimes they will feed on their siblings-hence becoming the "strongest" and most survivable corn in the bunch.

they were both good eaters so maybe it was a teritory thing, ;-(

only one person I asked said be careful, I provided 4 hides and a couple of plants for ample hiding. It obviously wasn't enough.

You could be right there, now I'm worried as she seems to have a black lump in her tummy, obviously its poor Foggy, but its very black and I don't know how long it should take her to digest something as big as another ,similar sized, snake. She's very pale so her tummy contents will be visible, but how long do I give her before I start worrying?

I'm sorry to hear that. Emotion: sad Poor Foggy.
Now that I've read your story though I'll make sure never to put two snakes together, whether they have a reputation for cannibalism or not.

I had some gerbils one time and after living together for most of their natural lifespan (they were together about 3 years) one of them suddenly decided to give a mortal wound to the other one.
I had no idea what set off the attack either, other than the fact that they were two males (I'll never make THAT mistake again).

Did you see one snake eat the other?
Were they both close to the same size?
Is the existing snake EXTREMELY fat from eating the other?

I find it improbable that one baby corn will eat another corn close to the same size! These little guys are great escape artists and great at concealing itself after the escape!
Look for a lost snake!!!
