Corn snake, Chicken snake, Red rat snake

These orange-coloured corn snakes have red blotches and sport black-and-white checkered bellies. The candy cane, however, is white with red marks like a candy cane as it lacks the gene for the orange colour. They constrict their prey and feed. Due to their docile nature and attractive patterns, they make good pets.
