albino corn snake.

hello, i recently perchased a albino corn snake. i named him nathin scott phillops. he is about two and a half feet long. anyway, a few questions. is it normal for him to be mainly active only at night these first few days? and after he sheds and eats, how long should i wait before i handle him? also, he has buried himself in the substrate once or twice, is this a bad sign?

My father's Albino Corn Snake "Bob" and my Corn Snake "Mitchell" both bury themselves underneath the substrate regularly and are fairly active at night. Bob and Mitchell are hatchlings and only about 15 inches long. I'm not sure on the shedding/feeding thing. We've always handled right after shedding and shortly after feeding. Just my personal experience.

I haven't seen Bob out much in the daytime, but after handling Mitchell today, he's still atop the substrate. I'm curious as to what substrate you use?

And my father wants a Red-Tailed Boa.
