FUN FACTS

Corn Snakes have beautiful natural colorations, including a stark black & white belly, which resembles a checkerboard pattern. This is quite the contrast to their mostly red, yellow, & black dorsal side. The Corn Snake may rise up in an “S” shape, while simultaneously showing their black & white belly when feeling threatened, & this (along with an open mouth) aids them in warning their potential predators of danger.
