Corn Snake Care Sheet

Pet Corn SnakeNative to the southeastern United States, Corn Snakes have become the most popular pet snakes thanks to their docile temperament, straightforward care and widespread availability. This also makes them the ideal snake for beginners, and the majority of first time snake owners will choose a Corn Snake (Pantherophis guttatus).

Corn Snakes, or Red Rat Snakes as they are sometimes known, are naturally beautiful creatures. Yet breeders have taken it one step further and there are now an enormous variety of different patterns and color morphs available on the market. Some of these are understandably quite pricey (Tessera morphs regularly sell for several hundred dollars), but fortunately a Corn Snake doesn’t have to break the bank. There’s lots of choice of very attractive and very affordable snakes available wherever you are.
