Part of a Early Warning project for non-native finds in the wild, if anyone sees a second corn snake in this area please contact me here, and I will contact the appropriate agencies to see if a strike team is needed to try and eliminate the populations. Also please capture the Non Native and place in a secure container and contact me to have me or the right agency contact you to retrieve the animal. You can always be anonymous with me.

The Red Cornsnake (Pantherophis guttatus), corn snake, or red rat snake, is a North American species of rat snake that subdues its small prey by constriction. The name "corn snake" is a holdover from the days when southern farmers stored harvested ears of corn in a wood frame or log building called a crib.
