Jurassic Fact of the Week YA'LL....
I am VERY excited because we just got new cornsnakes for the in-store parties....and they are HUGE! Biggest I have ever seen....monster cornsnakes dude.
Cornsnakes are commonly found in cornfields and open pastures of the U.S. and usually grow to 4-5 feet at the most. There are around 25 known color morphs of cornsnakes and thousands of compound morphs, just like other snakes.
Here are the two normal albinos that we just got(lacking the black rings around their saddle markings).
Thats not the coolest part though...in that donated group we also got an Anerythristic Cornsnake. The "normal", or wildtype, cornsnake has deep red saddle marks with black rims down its back, on top of an orange background. The term "anerythristic" means a lack of erythrin, which are the red, yellow, and orange pigments. This yields a snake that is commonly black and gray. COOL! Well, cool for me...only having ever seen the normal and normal albino morphs.
Check him out!
Cornsnakes have a naturally docile temperament, and make wonderful pets, especially for first-time herpers. They can be a little snippy when young, but that is their instinctive tendency to defend against everything. The more gentle handling, the better they will become...and they will no longer see you as a threat.
I love the orange cornsnakes, but seeing a different color is WAY cool. Come check him out...we named him GHOST. Maybe Ghost will haunt your next Jurassic Party....muahahahahahah.
