Contemporary pop culture has driven trepidations within us. We think that every snake is a dangerous beast that lustfully craves our peril and demise. That is to say, we think that all serpents are of the Snakes on a Plane variety; suggesting that the “snakes are out to get us.” Sure, it’d be disingenuous to say that all snakes are harmless little creatures that we can cuddle like teddy bears, but it would be carelessly ignorant to believe that all snakes are monsters that will kill us without a second of thought. In fact, some snakes can be owned, and you won’t have to fear that it will aim for your destruction. The corn snake is one of the most serene, intriguing and fun snakes to own. Essentially, they are the puppies of snakes (though, they don’t bark). If you are incredulously, contemplating ownership or just indifferent, this article will sway you to the side of corn snake fandom.
