Seattle Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: Slim

March 1st, 2014 by Laura

On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS). SAS is located at 2061 15th Ave W, just north of Whole Foods, at the corner of W. Armory Way. SAS is open Wednesday – Sunday, noon-6pm.

Queen Anne View has not met any of these pets – SAS is providing us with the description, as they know them well. We encourage potential adopters to get in touch with SAS and work with them to evaluate the compatibility of your home and a new pet. On Fridays we feature an adoptable pet from the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS).

Looking for an out of the ordinary pet? Come meet Slim!

Slim 2014-2-27 1Slim is a beautiful, curious and friendly corn snake (aka red rat snake). He can be a little bitey at times (but don’t worry, corn snakes are non-venomous), and seems to prefer male humans. Potential adopters should have some previous reptile experience and research corn snakes prior to adopting.

Corn/rat snakes typically grow to be 3’ to 5’ long, and often live to be 15+ years old in captivity with proper care and handling. They require a warm habitat and enjoy hiding and burrowing which is usually accommodated with a loose substrate and one or more hide boxes within the habitat.

Slim 2014-2-27 2They can be escape artists and care must be taken to provide an escape-proof enclosure. Corn snakes are active mainly at dusk, dawn and at night. These beautiful snakes are carnivorous and owners must be prepared to provide prey.

If snakes are your thing, come on in and meet handsome Slim today! His ID number is #13-10078 and he’s at the Seattle Animal Shelter.
