Red Rat Snake

 

A common and conspicuous snake with bright, highly visible reddish-orange coloration, the Red Rat Snake is one of our most beautiful snakes. This snake is commonly called the “Corn Snake,” probably due to its belly markings that resemble kernels of Indian corn. When cornered, the Red Rat Snake will coil like a rattler and bite.
