The Corn Snake is also known as the Red Rat Snake or Elaphe guttata guttata. It is a very popular pet due to its tame temperament and the fact the it only grows 6' in length. Another reason it is so popular is the fact that it is a non-venomous snake. The Corn Snake can live up to 26 years old. They are fairly common in the central and south eastern United States. This snake is a great climber and feeds nocturnally. Farmers can use Corn Snakes just like cats to control rodent problems and save their crops from being eaten.
