Description

Early AM spotted this one crossing the road. Couldn't really stop because cars were behind me but I quickly grabbed it to get a photo and released it 50 yards further down the road.

Seeing one the night before and one in the morning when I wasn't actively road cruising either time makes me think I was either very lucky or corn snakes are very common in this area.

Saw this on the drive back to our cabin after a day in the Smokies. It wasn't as dark as this photo makes it appear. It was early dusk but the flash from the camera made it appear darker. The gravel here is just to the side of the road.

This really was wild caught, although no doubt an escaped or released pet. Amelanistic.

Description from Wikipedia

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. Rats and mice came to the corn crib to feed on the corn, and corn snakes came to feed on the rodents....
