- Elaphe guttata intermontana

 

      A snake derived from an isolated population to be found in a mountain valley, this sub-species has only been in captivity for about three generations. The colour is a little different to the normal corn snake, being grey/brown and the body is stockier. The hatchlings are very vigorous, easy to feed and active. They seem to attain  adult size at about one metre, hence the name Dwarf Corn. A down side is the small clutch sizes, anything over four eggs being unusual.
