Peppermint Stripe Corn Snake

The corn snake is a species of rat snake that subdues its small prey by constriction, the pink peppermint stripe is a common morph to the naturally orange and checkered pattern species. Adults can grow to be 2-6ft and live in the wild 6-8years and in captivity up to 23 years. Wild corn snakes prefer overgrown fields, forest openings, trees, palmetto flat woods and abandoned buildings. They can be found in the southeaster US, ranging from New Jersey to the Florida Keys and as far west as Texas.

I don’t want to die and go on off to paradise
There are more fun places here that I can patronize
And you my friend aren’t born again
You’re dead already

If I can’t go to heaven let me go to LA
Or the far West Texas desert or an Oregon summer day
If we build a Utopia will you come and stay?
Shangri-La La La La La La La La La…


Los Angeles will always be the most beautiful place in the world to me. #home
