Corn Snake

The corn snake is a non-venomous constrictor that lives in parts of Florida, Georgia. Mississippi and Alabama. They grow to 5ft long (182 centimeters).   My family used to have one as a pet. We had a grayish one. I like the color and pattern they have, for instance, it has sort of a spot pattern and it can be red, and orange and grayish.

Despite what the name suggests, the corn snake doesn’t eat corn! Instead, it is good at catching rats and got its name from farmers who had problems with rats eating their corn. The farmers noticed that when this snake was in their fields the rats disappeared!  So the farmers loved having the corn snake in their fields. Not only do they look cool, but next time you eat a bowl of cornflakes you know who to thank!
