Here are a bunch of pictures of our Corn Snake (Pantherophis guttatus guttatus) that we have had since early 2002.
We adopted the corn snake (we call him* Little Head – yeah, I know, we’re not that creative) from a local reptile zoo / reptile rescue called Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo through a friend of ours who used to work at Little Ray’s. Our corn snake was part of a clutch that hatched in the zoo from a rescued female that turned out to be gravid (had eggs).
Now almost 6 feet long, it’s hard to remember when the snake would cling around your wrist like a little bracelet.
* Yeah so we never had the snake sexed so we don’t know if it’s a male or female. We used to think it was a female because of the way the tail tapered but it’s never produced eggs. Now we just refer to it as him or her interchangeably. Usually it’s just “the snake”.
