Corn snakes are majorly found in the Southeastern side of the US. Corn snakes don’t need much maintenance, and they have a pretty docile temperament. Nonetheless, you have to be very watchful of these smart snakes as they have a penchant for escaping from their cages.
There are about 800 corn snake morphs in existence today. Each has its peculiarity, and yes, its charm. They are nonvenomous and of medium size. They have an exquisite appearance, thanks to their sharp colors.
Would you be thrilled to learn about these hundreds of corn snake morphs? Would you like to know how each of these morphs was created? In this guide, we will be taking you through a detailed guide on these morphs and how you can identify them.
How Many Corn Snake Morphs are There?
Currently, there are an estimated 700-800 corn snake morphs. These morphs vary genetically and in their appearance. You could find affordable corn snake morphs in the $50 category while some exotic corn snake morphs can cost as much as $1000.
45 Corn Snake Morphs
1. Amelanistic (Albino) Corn Snake
Amelanistic snakes get the Albino tag in their name from the curious scarcity of melanin in these snakes’ skin. The Albino snake belongs in the original caste of corn snake morphs. Albino snakes hold the reputation of being the first morph discovered in the wild.
These amelanistic corn snakes tend to have pink or red eyes. They have an orange coloring with a creamy tone enhanced with orange-red saddles, neatly arranged in regular patterns.
As opposed to the traditional perspective that albino snakes, albino corn snakes aren’t. These snakes yet retain some pigmentation in their scales or skin aside from melanin.
Initially, amelanistic corn snakes used to be expensive as most other corn snakes kept as pets were wild-caught. But this isn’t the situation today. Hence, amelanistic corn snakes have experienced a significant slash in their price, becoming as affordable as $40-50.
2. Topaz Corn Snake
Topaz corn snake is one of the most uncommon corn snake morphs you would ever see. Not much is known at present about this lovely morph came about.
They derive their name from the colorful properties of the topaz stone. Therefore, you see that the topaz corn snake is of golden yellow with a warmer tone.
The pattern is similar to what we conventionally see from corn snakes. The biggest charm of the snake is the color of its iris, which is a gorgeous green which is in sharp contrast to the main body.
3. Sunglow Corn Snake
The sunglow corn snake is a selectively bred amelanistic. When we say selectively bred, this means these snakes are neither wild morphs nor are they designer morphs.
The sunglow corn morph is the result of successive breeding of these amelanistic snakes across several generations to emphasize specific traits. Therefore, you see that sunglow corn morphs look better than the typical albino morph. This time, they are adorned with an orange background enhanced with orange saddle markers (which are relatively darker).
As the sunglow corn snake morph ages, the density of its white speckles reduces. Sunglows retain the red or pink eyes of the albino, but their overall colors are sharper. You can get sunglow morphs in the region of $40-50.
4. Okeetee Corn Snake
Okeetee Corn Snake is a wild morph. Indeed, they share quite a similarity with the normal corn snake only that they have been selectively bred to embellish their difference from the regular corn snake.
Okeetees tend to be brighter than the normal corn snake. Also, there is more contrast between the Okeetee’s saddle and ground colors. The saddles are kind of maroon with the border bounding the saddles thicker and darker.
The Okeetee corn morph was discovered in South Carolina, precisely in Jasper County. The Okeetee comes from the Okeetee Hunt Club, whose members discovered this morph.
The Okeetee is still fairly exotic. Extremes Okeetees – that is, those whose color tones and patterns have been significantly enhanced – could cost over $250. But the typical Okeetee would cost you around $60-$100.
5. Snopal Stripe Corn Snake
The Snopal Stripe corn snake is also known as the glacial stripe corn snake. It closely mirrors the opal. This corn snake morph is virtually white with no stripes, which are similar to what you get from blizzard corn snake morphs.
The Snopal Stripe corn snake’s scales tend to be opalescent, adorned with an appreciable amount of mind and lavender. It majorly depends on the direction the light casts on it.
6. Cinder Corn Snake
These are a relatively new type of corn snake morphs. While your regular corn snake would have red, yellow, and orange coloring, the cinder corn snake goes brown and gray.
Considering this snake morphs lack that typical redness of corn snake morphs, we see that the cinder shares a striking similarity with anerythristic corn snakes.
The color of this corn snake morph is closer to cinder (ash), which is where it gets its name. A part of its exoticness comes from the fact that while other corn snake morphs are vibrant, this morph is a bit paler.
It has some brown saddle markers with this morph also standing out for the remarkable waviness of its saddle markings.
7. Anerythristic (Anery) Corn Snake
The Anery corn snake morph shares a similarity with albinos, although this similarity doesn’t extend to their appearance. Both the Anery and albinos lack pigmentation. But in the case of the Anery, it lacks erythrin instead of the melanin albinos lacks. Surely, corn snakes get their redness from erythrin.
The melanin in their skin makes Anerys look grayer, as seen in their background color, with a darker tone to this grayness in their saddles. Commonly, Anerys are segmented into the Type A and Type B Anerys. Type AAnerys are lighter, while Type B is darker.
Given that Anerys are no longer new in the market, they have lost quite a chunk of their value. You can get an anery corn snake morph for around $50-60.
8. Hypo Bloodred Corn Snake
The Hypo Bloodred corn snake morph is the result you get when you bring the bloodred and hypomelanistic genes together. The bloodred genes remove the typical belly checkers. The hypo bloodred corn snake is lighter than the traditional bloodred morph thanks to the hypomelanistic, which eliminates a chunk of the dark pigmentation.
9. Lavender Corn Snake
The Lavender Aztec corn snake morph is a designer morph, otherwise known as a compound morph. The Lavender isn’t found in the wild as this morph is a deliberate creation of breeders, featuring a silver-gray body tinted with some pink. Also, their saddles are marked in brown or gray.
The juvenile Lavender corn snake morph is initially birthed darker, but as they age, the darkness fades into brighter colors, especially with the lavender color becoming more prominent.
Yes, Lavender corn snake morphs are charming, but they have been around for a while; hence their value has dropped too. You can get lavender snakes for around $40-80.
10. Amel Orchid Corn Snake
The Amel Orchid combines the traits of the orchid corn snake and the Amel corn snake (which is the albino). Now, the orchid parent is the combination of the characteristics of the sunkissed and the lavender morph. Recognizing that the three traits (albino, lavender, and sunkissed) are recessive, they can all coexist, furnishing the Amel orchid with three distinct traits.
Its saddles have a darker shade with a candy color ground color. Putting this together, you have an Amel Orchid with a significantly bright pink body. As predictable of amelanistic genes, the Amel Orchid has pinkish-red eyes.
The Amel Orchid is relatively exotic, and you can budget around $150 for it.
11. Caramel Corn Snake
The Caramel corn snake is another attractive morph we can’t ignore. Breeders cherish the caramel morph for its ability to make lots of designers. They could be bred with butter morphs and other ones like the hypomelanistic morphs.
Its scales are more yellowish and the skin less red compared to the traditional corn snake. Therefore, you see the caramel corn snake having a tan base color. The saddles can run from brown to bright yellow.
The juvenile caramel looks quite distinctive. They are redder when measured against the caramel, although the redness fades as they get older.
The caramel corn snake morph is sold around $30-70.
12. Granite Corn Snake
The granite corn snake, when viewed from afar, resembles a snow leopard! They lack the intensity of the coloration of the typical corn snake. It retains the markings of the usual corn snake, although they appear more diffusely distributed.
13. Lava Corn Snake
The lava corn snake looks more like the regular corn snake, but the colors have a higher tone. The background markings tend to be whiter or paler, especially when they are just hatched. But as they grow older, the orange coloring consolidates.
14. Blood Red Corn Snake
The bloodred corn snake is famous for its rich redness, which is simultaneously deep and bright. This morph was selectively bred for their red markings from wild corn snakes. Across generations, these markings get brighter and deeper.
The bloodred lacks the conventional patterns of the corn snake as the markings tend to envelop their full body. Hatchlings of the bloodred start life looking like the normal corn snake. Bur with age, the markings get increasingly redder accompanied by fading of the background color.
You can get the bloodred corn for around $70-100.
15. Hypo Lavender Stripe Corn Snake
The hypo lavender is the resultant morph you get when you bring the stripe, hypomelanistic, and the lavender genes together. Their coloring? It has lavender shades with a pinkish tint.
16. Blizzard Corn Snake
The Blizzard as we indicated earlier, is thoroughly white. While your albino still has a slight pinkish-orange hue, the Blizzard is entirely snow-white all the way from its tail to its nose. Fantasticc, isn’t it?
Blizzards are without distinct patterns, with the white flooring the full body. Basically, the Blizzard is a designer morph derived from the combination of the Type B anery snake (which we will touch on later) and the albino.
So here, you have an anery which lacks erythrin coming together with an albino which lacks melanin. Therefore, you get a blizzard with just no pigmentation!
Blizzard corn snakes are a beauty for their red pupils and pinkish eyes. This, you will agree, comes from their albino genes. Juveniles are more captivating and are purely white as well.
When it grows, it gets some yellowish patches adorning its belly and throat. This yellow patch arises from the carotenoid the snake derives from its diet.
Previously, blizzards tend to be rare, but of late, they are getting more common. You can get Blizzard corn snakes from around $70-100.
17. Lavender Bloodred Corn Snake
The Lavender Bloodred corn snake morph is commonly seen as the plasma corn snake. Just as you can infer from the name, this morph combines the bloodred and lavender genes.
Their scales have peachy ground colors enhanced with some lavender shades. As usual, the bloodred genes ensure that this morph doesn’t have belly checkers.
18. Palmetto Corn Snake
The Palmetto morph takes on the characteristic whiteness of the blizzard corn snake. However, while you have your Blizzard being without patterns, the palmetto has lovely patterns. The latter is adorned with colorful flecks (of varying hues) from its tail to its nose.
The color of these flecks is determined by the morph you breed the palmetto with. A normal palmetto could have orange, brown, and red spots. Alternatively, you could find a butter palmetto with yellow flecks.
Its name originates from South Carolina (known as the Palmetto state), where the first morph was caught. Undoubtedly, you could readily mistake the palmetto for a designer morph given its colorful elegance, but it is a wild morph. The first male palmetto morph was first caught in the closing phase of the 2009 breeding season from where it was transported to South Mountain Reptiles.
Across time, it was discovered that the palmetto is one of the variants of the leucistic gene. Ask some breeders, and they would argue that the palmetto morph isn’t a true corn snake. They support this with the hypothesis that the palmetto could be from the union of corn snake with a rat snake. DNA testing is yet to prove this, however.
Given that they are exotic morphs only recently discovered, you can get a palmetto for around $600-1500.
19. Stripe Corn Snake
The stripe corn snake has no saddles. Instead, it has thin stripes that run longitudinally to the tail from the head. The stripe basically has its pattern distorted (from that of the normal corn snake) but not the color.
Considering that this morph retains its color but has only its pattern changed, breeders commonly breed it with snakes of just any color. Therefore, when the stripe is bred with a wild corn snake, what you get is a morph with red lines and orange base color.
These morphs ought to be more expensive because of their relative rarity. But there is such sparse interest in them either. Therefore, you could get this morph for around $40-60.
20. Scaleless Corn Snake
If you are to mention the most exciting corn snake morph, you will not be forgiven if you omit the scaleless morph. So, this corn snake morph only has scales on each eye but one on its back. Lacking a skin dressed in scales, this corn snake morph has an exposed skin, although the belly is partially covered with scales.
This is a selectively bred, not a designer morph. It comes from the union of a corn snake and a scaleless rat snake. This resulted in sort of a jungle corn, which is typical of interbreeding two different species.
The scaleless corn snake has no defined pigmentation or pattern. You can expect to pay more than $200 for this morph.
21. Alabama Corn Snake
As you can readily infer, this corn snake morph was originally discovered in Alabama. Alabama corn snakes are famed for their bellies decorated with white and black checkers.
On the side of the Alabama corn snake, there are no patterns but are dark brown most times, making the markings resemble stripes. This is one distinguishing trait of the Alabama morph.
Their saddle markings are deep red overlying a dark brown skin. These markings are bounded by black or dark brown. They are sleek and famed for their distinctly darker look. While the Alabama corn snake admittedly looks a bit intimidating, it is yet meek and safe to handle. Indeed, they can make do with little maintenance from the owner.
22. Opale Corn Snake
Undoubtedly, Opale is one of the longest existing corn snake morphs as it has been around since the late 1990s. The Opale corn snake morph is brilliantly colored. They can be pink, lavender, or orange (with the orange having a sharper pastel shade).
Upon maturation, they share a resemblance with blizzards, only that Opales are typified with pinkish highlights. To put it better, the Opale resembles a pale albino with fleeting patterns. Certainly, the hatchlings are far brighter, but this distinct coloration would fade as they mature.
Genetically, the Opale is a designer morph created from amelanistic and lavender corn snakes. Surely, these parent genes being both recessive, the opale corn snake is double recessive.
You can get the Opale corn snake for around $70-80.
23. Sunspot Corn Snake
The markings of the Sunspot morph are strikingly unconventional. It strangely combines stripes and blotches, with orange markings sitting on a peachy background.
The head is decorated with the thin stripes which lead into scattered blotches, just like the markings you would see in a typical corn snake. The eyes of the sunspot are also catching. The iris is remarkably amber, which is in sharp contrast to the black pupils. This combination makes their eyes appear wider.
24. Snow Motley Corn Snake
The Snow Motley is what you get when you bring together three different genes: Anery A, motley, and amelanistic. They share strong similarities with snow corn morphs. As they mature, Snow Motley morphs add sharper shades of green and yellow.
25. Hypomelanistic Corn Snake
The hypomelanistic corn snake morph is commonly referred to as the hypo corn snakes. Admittedly, this is among some of the oldest corn snake morphs. Its pattern and color resemble that of the normal corn snake, only that the former is notably lighter. This lightness is the result of some black pigmentation being eradicated in the hypo morph.
Hypo corn snakes are excellent in making designer morphs. These morphs are a bit different from normals in their color combination. Given their commonness, you could get a hypo morph for around $50.
26. Pastel Motley Corn Snake
The Pastel Motley, as you can guess, is a variant of the Motley corn snake. Interestingly, the juvenile pastel motley is colored off-white dressed with some tan stripes.
When it matures, the pastel motley gets its body colored pastel yellow, decked with some pastel blue markings. The markings can in some cases, be concrete like diamond shapes. In other circumstances, they can take on abstract shapes.
27. Pied Corn Snake
The pied morph is the same as the piebald. They are a pattern morph and partially a color morph. While the pied corn snake has been selectively bred across generations to embellish distinct qualities, they are first caught in the wild.
Pied corn snakes were discovered since far back in the 1970s. Originally, there was a sparse success in its first breeding program owing to the fatality of the piebald mutation. Across time, improved genetic versions were discovered.
The pied corn snake has prominent white sections with colors (like red and orange) that are uniformly distributed across these sections. This is true white, which is reasonably different from the albino white.
There are several variants of piebaldism. While we have talked about pied corn snakes, there are also the pied-sided morphs. For the latter, they have their bellies and sides clothed with white patches.
Despite being old, there has of late been resurgence in the interest in pied corn snakes. Therefore, you can get the pied morph for upwards $150.
28. Candy Cane Corn Snake
The candy cane is also referred to as the red rat snake. It looks strikingly similar to your juicy candy cane, thanks to its red and white skin. In contrast to the usual saddle markings you would see from the normal corn snake, the candy cane’s patterns are more like stripes. This makes it resemble your Xmas mint.
Just like we had in albinos, the candy cane lacks black pigmentation. In some cases, you would see the red hue looks more orange. Altogether, the candy cane morph is charming with sharply colored red eyes.
They grow to about 5 feet. Their white and red contrast makes them pretty popular in the list of corn snake morphs. Nonetheless, they aren’t necessarily exotic as you can get a candy corn snake morph in the region of $50.
29. Jungle Corn Snake
The Jungle corn snake emerges from the breeding union of the California kingsnake with the corn snake. There are no fears of fatality here since both the California kingsnake and the corn snake are not distant relatives.
Although their genera differ, they are basically colubrids. Indeed, the fact that you can get Jungle corn from breeding a corn snake and a California kingsnake is quite a miracle considering that bringing two animals from two different genera barely gives you a fertile offspring.
The Jungle corn snake mixes the patterns of the California kingsnake with that of the regular corn snake, making its pattern variations stark. While some Jungles would have stripes and saddles the same size, you could have other Jungles having prominent saddle interspersed with tiny stripes.
There is also a variation in its coloring. You could have some Jungle corn snake morphs with brown saddles graced with a red blush (as seen in traffic lights). In others, you would see orange saddles being adorned with tan blushes.
Amusingly, there are also Jungle corn snakes that combine three colors, looking more like albino corn snakes. The latter variant of the Jungle morph is gotten when you breed the corn snake with a Querétaro kingsnake.
The Jungle corn snake can cost anywhere from $50 to $100.
30. Turbo Corn Snake
The turbo corn snake is a crossbred offspring of the corn snake and a gopher snake. This negates a proliferated assumption among breeders that just any snake in the Pituophis genus can be bred with the corn snake to result in the turbo snake.
Depending on the parent species, you can expect the patterns and the colors of these hybrids to vary. Turbo corn snakes tend to be heavy-bodied, courtesy of the Gopher genes. It is well known that gopher snakes are thicker than your regular corn snake.
The Turbo snake also has thicker tails, which can also be attributed to the gopher parent. The turbo corn snake compared to the regular corn snake grows much faster into longer and bigger snakes.
They are relatively exotic and not strewn around. Expect to buy a turbo corn snake for over $100.
31. Tessera Corn Snake
The Tessera is a creation of South Mountain Reptiles. The first Tessera corn snake was bred in 2008 by Don Soderberg. Tessera corn snakes are some of the most desirable morphs. This desirableness is not out of place, taking into account their stunning look.
The Tessera corn snake has a kind of terracotta-dark burgundy coloration with unique dorsal stripes. This perches on a pale tan background. The unique line marking the back of the Tessera corn snake is one of the most remarkable attractions of this snake.
You would be wrong to think this is all the Tessera has to offer. Its patterns are not regular as the normal saddles appear to be scattered in different shapes and sizes.
Normal tessera morphs have the same colors as your regular corn morph, but the Tessera doesn’t have any distinct color, being a pattern morph. They can look as colorful as butter morphs and also look as pale as albinos.
The common variants of the Tessera can be bought for around $100. But the more exclusive variants can go for as high as $1000 or even more.
32. Butter Corn Snake
The butter is one designer morph worth learning about. You get the butter corn snake when you breed an albino corn snake morph with a caramel morph.
As typical of butter, this corn snake morph is notably yellow. The saddles have deeper shades of yellow while the background color tends to be light yellow. You wouldn’t have problems telling the pattern giving the differing yellows. Overall, the butter snake is beautiful.
Agreeably, this snake is readily available, with its commonly hugely slashing its value. You can get a butter corn snake for around $50.
33. Orchid Corn Snake
The Orchid corn snake is gotten from breeding a sunkissed corn snake with a lavender morph. The juvenile Orchid is colored pink (with a creamy tone to it) enhanced with stripes sitting between the saddles. These stripes can be orange or sharp yellow.
When it ages, the color transforms into something remarkably pink decked with a blue hue. This is owing to the lavender and sunkissed traits being recessive. Consequently, they are both expressed alongside each other in the Orchid.
Another that would excite you about the Orchid is that from one end, this corn snake morph would look like a sunkissed snake. From the other end, it would look like a lavender snake.
The Orchid snake is not common at all. This triggers a relative costliness for this corn snake morph. You should be budgeting around $300 for this orchid corn snake.
34. Strawberry Snow Corn Snake
As its name suggests, the strawberry snow is a designer morph achieved by breeding a snow corn snake with a strawberry corn snake. Now, when the redness of the strawberry corn snake mixes with the whiteness of its snow colleague, you get a strawberry snow snake that is pinkish.
The strawberry snow’s saddle has the color of indistinct bubblegum pink, while the background color is of soft pastel pink. If you observe the strawberry from afar, they appear like they are pink sprinkled with mottled spots. This can be attributed to the contrast between the saddle and the background color.
As typical of snakes with amelanistic genes (which the strawberry snow has), its eyes are pink. With this, you can see that the strawberry snow is pink all through. You are unlikely to see such uniformity in color from other morphs.
You can get the strawberry snow for around $100.
35. Ghost Corn Snake
“Ghost” is a curious name for a corn snake morph, right? This is a designer morph obtained from breeding a hypomelanistic snake with an anery type A corn snake.
The ghost has saddles prominently adorned with blushes. The saddles could be brown, the background color could be white or mid-gray, while the blush’s center is mid-gray as well.
Commonly, you would see the saddle outlined in a darker hue seated between brown and black. This is one distinguishing element of the Ghost morph.
You can get the ghost for about $50-100.
36. Motley Corn Snake
The Motley is one of the most peculiar corn snakes ever. It comes in just any color, being a pattern morph. While it is uncommon to see corn snakes having clear bellies, the Motley corn snake does.
Compared to wild corn snakes, the Motley sides are less stacked with colors. Also, the Motley stands out for having no secondary patterns separating its saddle markings
As the Motley corn snake age, it puts on a mid-range hue. The saddle then gets darker compared to the remaining part of the snake’s backs.
You would be amused to learn that the Motley corn snake is allelic alongside the stripe morph. This implies that the gene mutation occurs at the same location responsible for the stripe morph.
Being a dominant gene, the Motley traits are predominantly expressed in the appearance of its offspring. The commoner Motley could cost you around $65, but for exotic variants, you can expect them to cost several hundreds of dollars.
37. Anery Stripe Corn Snake
The Anery stripe is a designer morph that comes from breeding a stripe corn snake with an anerythristic. These snakes retain the typical anery color combination: black (or darker gray) patterns sitting on light gray color. Indeed, the Anery stripe is one corn snakes boasting the highest contrast.
This contrast is largely attributed to this snake’s pattern. In place of saddles, the Anery stripe makes do with stripes that run longitudinally across its back from the nose to tail.
While these stripes are not very clear in some anery stripes, in others, the stripes are conspicuous as they are deep black and straight. This applies to the much sought after Anery stripe specimens that sell far higher.
You can get the Anery stripe for around $50-100.
38. Caramel Stripe Corn Snake
The Caramel stripe is homozygous for the stripe and the caramel genes. These corn snakes have scales that are colored golden caramel, brown, or yellow.
39. Reverse Okeetee Corn Snake
This is a unique variant of the albino corn snake. This corn snake has sharp red saddles with receding orange ground color. So instead of the saddles being bounded by black, that of the Reverse Oketee’s is bordered by black. This is the origin of the name “Reverse”.
The Reverse Okeetee’s genetic story makes for good listening. As characteristic of snakes with amelanistic genes, this corn snake morph has eyes ranging from red to pink.
While the name Reverse Okeetee may spark the assumption that this corn snake morph must have been achieved by breeding Okeetees with amelanistic snakes, you may be shocked to learn that the Reverse Okeetee morph has no Okeetee gene at all.
This corn snake morph is the result of the intense selectively breeding of the amelanistic genes. The Reverse Okeetee was bred across generations specially for its sharp red saddles flanked by wider bands.
You can get the reverse okeetee for somewhere around $85-100.
40. Bubblegum Snow Corn Snake
These corn snakes are tagged the pink-and-green corn snakes. Interestingly, not every bubblegum snow corn snake would grow up to have a green hue. These are essentially snow corn snakes that have been selectively bred to emphasize their pinkness. In some cases, this pink is yet adorned with shades of white, green, and yellow.
41. Pewter Corn Snake
The Pewter corn snake is silvery-lavender. When it grows old, it has far reduced patternation.
42. Orange Creamsicle Corn Snake
The Orange Creamsicle is crossbred from the Great Plains rat snake with the standard corn snake. This corn snake morph has orange saddle markings laid against a yellow ground color. Often, the ground color can tilt to a light orange.
Considering this, you see that the orange creamsicle shares a resemblance with the amelanistic corn. This corn snake is relatively rare and goes for about $80.
43. Miami Corn Snake
The Miami corn snake is another locality morph. This means it’s a unique variant of the species from a particular place, like the Okeetee. As you can guess, it’s from the area around Miami.
A Miami corn snake has a silver or grey ground color, with saddles ranging from orange to dark red. This morph occurs naturally, a number of these specimens have been selectively bred to highlight this morph’s distinct qualities like the greyer ground color morph.
One exciting feature of this snake is that not everyone in the corn snake community concurs with the Miami corn snake being a morph. A conflict rages among breeders who disagree on whether the Miami snake’s traits can be passed on to subsequent generations or not.
Truth is while these morphs are not common, they don’t cost much either. This is due to the general disinterest of breeders in these morphs (which is not disconnected from their lack of charming colors). You can get the Miami corn snake for as cheap as $50.
44. Kastanie Corn Snake
The Kastanie corn snake morph was originally discovered in Germany. When they hatch out, Kastanie corn snakes look much like an Anery corn snake. However, as these hatchlings age, they begin to put on some more color. Ultimately, they grow chestnut coloring.
45. Black Corn Snake
The black corn snakes are essentially anerythristic snakes that have been specially bred. Compared to the regular corn snake, they don’t have the usual red pigmentation.
Black corn snakes are extensively unique as they lack the tan and brown variations of the anerythristic corn snakes. They would grow about 4-5 feet averagely.
They are not thoroughly black, as the name may suggest. Instead, this snake has grey or white saddle markings distributed about its girth. There are directly opposite scenarios where the black corn snakes have a predominantly chalky white body laced with black saddle markings.
The eyes are black, making the black corn snake an enchanting snake well craved for as pets. Despite the bulk of interest in this corn snake morph, this morph is relatively affordable, as you get them for around $80.
