Corn Snakes

Corn snakes are beautiful snakes with a gentle disposition. Over the years, captive breeding of this species has created an amazing variety of color morphs that are now available to beginning hobbyists. They were given the name “Corn” snake because they were commonly found in barns where corn was being stored. They enjoy the shelter that barns create, and the mice and rats that are attracted to the corn.
