How cool is this????

As I was walking up to the door at work this morning what scurries across my path? A baby corn snake!!

This species is definitely NOT from around here so I figure it probably escaped from someone's home. It is in very good condition though.

I will give him a good home along with the rest of my zoo

Its a normal corn... I had to rub my eyes to make sure I was seeing right because it was 8am when I found it.

Pretty much all we have around here in the wild are garter snakes lol

It still looked like a corn even after my coffee

I have no idea who's it could be because I work in a bunker located in the middle of nowhere... there is a farm house down the road... but the farmer looked at me like a nut when I asked him if he lost a snake.

Not something ya hear about everyday! Glad you found it before it made its way somehwere else! Non-native herps loose on the town are never a good thing.

I will keep my fingers crossed that the same fortune befalls me! Glad it was an avid herper who found the stray corn. Now you're both better off.

Good for you. Kinda wierd how these things seem to just go your way. Like.. finding a sweet snake on the way to work when you just happen to be an avid herper..... hmmmm.......
