A Little Bit About Cornsnakes

The cornsnake (Elaphe guttata guttata), is a North American species that subdue their small prey with constriction much like boa constrictors. The name "cornsnake" comes from the fact that they have a maize-like pattern on their bellies that resembles corn. You'll notice that a lot of people will write the name as "corn snake." In today's day and age both "cornsnake" and "corn snake" are acceptable but when following tradition the common name is spelled: "cornsnake." Their docile nature, reluctance to bite, moderate adult size (1.2-1.8 meters or 4-6 ft), attractive pattern, and comparatively simple care make them excellent and popular pet snakes. In the wild, they usually live around 10-15 years, but may live as long as 23 years in captivity. Cornsnakes are non-venomous and extremly friendly.
