Description

Only temporarily captive. Picked up in the wild a week ago (this species is introduced and well-etablished on Nevis) by my friend and her son, because of a request from a neighbor who does not like snakes. Will be released next week.

This adult individual is about four feet long. It is extremely docile even by corn snake standards -- it did not show any signs of alarm whatsoever even when picked up in the wild.

It seems possible or perhaps even likely (?) that this may be one of two individuals that were born in the wild, found as juveniles, and kept for a year by the family as much-handled pets up until 2009, and then the two were released back into the wild after that:

Description

Corn snake scaled a palm tree. When it got to the top, a scuffle ensued, and a rat (barely visible in upper left of picture 2) ejected the snake to the ground. This was in the Marriott
resort at Hilton Head from the pool deck overlooking the beach

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....
