Yes Marisa, that is a corn snake, at least by Behler and King's definition. What is pictured is the western subspecies, E.g. emoryi or Great Plains Ratsnake. If you check the text (pg. 65 you'll see a breadown). A poor choice for a photo of a "cornsnake" for certain, the common name Great Plains Ratsnake would have been more appropriate. Plate #608 is a far better example, particularly of the "Okeetee" type so sought after by collectors.
