The Corn Snake (Pantherophis guttatus), or Red Rat Snake, is a North American species of Rat Snake that subdues its small prey by constriction. The name "Corn Snake" is a holdover from the days when southern farmers stored harvested ears of corn in a wood frame or log building called a crib. Rats and mice came to the corn crib to feed on the corn, and Corn Snakes came to feed on the rodents.The Oxford English Dictionary cites this usage as far back as 1676. Corn Snakes are found throughout the southeastern and central United States. Their docile nature, reluctance to bite, moderate adult size 3.95.9 feet (1.21.8 m), attractive pattern, and comparatively simple care make them popular pet snakes. In the wild, they usually live around 68 years, but in captivity can live to be up to 23 years old.

Hello Ronny,
What a beautifully colored corn snake you have posted. The focus is tac sharp allowing us to view the outstanding detail of it's brightly colored skin. Excellent lighting and great DOF. Well done!!


Great usage of the light and composition. The detail and sharpness are excellent. I also love the dark BG.

Hi Ronny,

Beautiful, I just want to sink my teeth into these corns :)

It is amazing quality and what I love is that you don't have to show the head of hte snake and yet, it already bring out the fear we have for snake.
