Corn Snakes and Other Rat Snakes
Because corn and rat snakes are brilliantly colored, harmless to humans, and do well in captivity, they have become popular reptiles to own and breed. This manual describes most subspecies found in European and American collections, including the corn snake, the many races of black rat snake, the green rat snake, the Mexican corn snake, many European rat snakes, and similar forms from Africa and Latin America. There is information on feeding, caging, breeding, and health, plus a bibliography and glossary.
