Corn Snakes at the Agricultural Science Unit
These low-key snakes allow people to handle them and are generally docile.
Corn snakes are a type of rat snake and are named for the pattern of their belly scales that resembles maize, an ancestor of modern-day corn.
Their extremely variable and gorgeous colors and patterns, ease of care and breeding, and generally docile dispositions have earned corn snakes their rightful, premier place in herpetoculture.
