Corn Snake 1


Reptiles / Pantherophis guttatus
Length 30-48"
Conservation Status
Least Concern

Cornsnakes are generally very mild mannered but will rattle their tails in dead leaves when frightened to scare away a potential predator. Their coloration also resembles that of the venomous copperhead, which works in their favor unless a human does not recognize the difference. Cornsnakes are known to live 10-22 years.
