Corn Snake

Pantherophis guttatus
The Corn Snake is a North American species of rat
snake that subdues its small prey by constriction.
Their docile nature, reluctance to bite, attractive
pattern, and simple care make them popular
pet snakes. Though resembling the venomous
copperhead, they are harmless and benefi cial to
humans. Corn snakes lack venom and help control
populations of rodent pests that damage crops and
spread disease.

DIET

Corn Snakes consume small rodents, and may also be
found eating reptiles or amphibians, or climbing trees
in order to find unguarded bird eggs.
