With their easy care and handling,
corn snakes are justifiably one of the most popular
snakes kept as pets. Their availability in a dazzling
array of colours and patterns means that they are
a favourite with experienced enthusiasts as well
as hobby beginners.
Most corn snakes live for about 20 years and grow
to a length of 3-5 feet, which is ideal for a pet.
Captive-bred corn snakes are usually docile to
handle and in any case, their bite is not venomous
to human beings.
