About the Corn Snake

Class: Reptilia
Order: Squamata
Family: Colubridae
Genus: Elaphe
Species: guttata

Corn snakes earn their name from their spotted underside, which resembles corn kernels. They're also frequently found in cornfields and corncribs. Feeding upon mice, bats and rats, corn snakes are considered helpful to humans because they hunt rodents and help in controlling pest populations.
