Corn snakes indeed. As others have said, they're super easy to take care of. Also, feeding each in a separate brown paper bag will ensure that they do not start biting when you place your hand in the cage. If you just drop a mouse in with them, they will start to associate movement within the cage as food (AKA your hand). Fighting over a mouse is also highly likely. I've seen two snakes grab a hold at both end and work their way towards each other. I had to cut the mouse in half with scissors. =/

...Not pleasant...

Don't over think it. If you miss a feeding one week, no big deal. You can feed once a week, once every ten days, every fourteen days, or whatever works for you.
