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