Re: Milk snake vs corn snake what's the difference

Corn snakes usually get just a wee bit bigger, not always, as I have a Pueblan Milk snake that's close to 4 feet long.

Corn snakes are actually a breed of rat snake, but tend to be a lot mellower than milks or rats.

Corn snakes are uber common, milks a little less so.

One thing most milks have in common is they are flighty, and likely to musk you when handled. A corn usually won't do that, I stress usually, since any snake can get spooked and fling nasty smells at us.

Care is about the same, they all come in pretty colours... or lack of colours.

Re: Milk snake vs corn snake what's the difference

As far as care.....all colubrids can be kept similar if they are provided a thermal and humidity gradient.

The Central American Milks (hondurensis, polyzona, abnorma, andesiana, stuarti, oligozona, micropholis & gaigeae) grow as long or longer than guttata.
But since the Hobby Hondo craze of recent past and current it is difficult to find pure strains of each in the hobby today.

Milk Snakes from Mexico are typically larger adults than the Milks in the United States.

And...Just as corns are ratsnakes, milks are kingsnakes (ophiophagus).

Here's a big milk....Black Milk. They hatch out as tricolors and turn black with age.

Re: Milk snake vs corn snake what's the difference

It is common for pure Hondurans and pure Black Milks to get that big........
It isn't common for a Nelson's, Pueblan, Sinaloan or Mexican Milk to get over 4 feet.

Ahhh. . I don't know much about milks. It was my understanding that it wasn't common for them to get over 4'...I guess that was just an average throughout the milks....I learn something new everyday
