- Elaphe guttata guttata

      This morph is a Hypomelanistic form of the Caramel corn. I think this will prove to be one of the most popular colour forms of corn snake, when they become more available. First produced in 1995 by Rich Zuchowski of Serpen Co, in America, he describes them as follows;-   

Specimens vary from golden amber to a light greenish brown with highlights of yellow. Shades of grey and some white may grace the ground colour as well, with the blotches generally being darker coloured than the ground colour and often flecked with white. The blotches are sometimes strongly bordered with black, giving it a rather unusual look about it. This is an animal that always gets people pointing their finger at it and asking me 'What is that!'.......They seem to have a highly developed curiosity about their surroundings and have absolutely no fear of being handled. Whenever someone asks us for the most mellow and laid back of any of the cultivars of the corn snake, this is the one that always comes to mind.
