Snow corn snakes are fine with other snakes so can live alone or with other snakes of similar size. The snake will require a hiding spots in the vivarium for it to feel secure. By having more than 3 in different areas, the snake will choose the one at the ideal temperature. A humid hide is also recommended for the snake when they are shedding their skin, as they are hollow hides with a damp moss inside.
Plastic plants are also good to use, as they offer privacy.
These snakes are albino so do not require bright lighting. These particular snakes require a temperature gradient of 25˚C to 30˚C (77˚F to 86˚F) during the day. You can achieve this habitat with a heat mat and basking light on one side of the vivarium to create a warmer end. It’s important that these are controlled by thermostats so the vivarium doesn’t become overheated. At night the temperature should drop to around 20˚C to 25˚C (68˚F to 77˚F).
