How often do you clean your snakes vivarium out? Like a full replacement of bedding etc. Very curious as I'm a new corn snake owner. Thanks!

Hey there, I usually take the snake out and put it in a secure rub box.
Then remove and chuck everything, use a damp cloth to wipe down then put new bedding back in then the snake.

Ah thanks but I meant how often do you do it ? @Tish008

Ah sorry, not very often. I tend to spot check and remove poo when needed. They don't need to live in a detoled space so don't worry too much about it

So maybe every 6 months or so

About once a month, sometimes longer. Spot clean when needed

We have had our cornsnake for about 5 years. I spot check / change his water once per week and completely clean out every couple of months. To be honest apart from eating his weaner rat on a Tuesday he sleeps 6.9999 days a week.

If reincarnation exists I think I would like to come back as a well cared for pet snake.

Every couple of months here. Mine also I'm RUBs. Although obviously clean up any mess they leave.
