Corns this year will pick up again, easy to keep and breed, ball python breeders are soon goin to be looking at what the market is looking for and I personally think 2016 will see corns breed more and so called "ball python first snake" hype will turn to corn snakes. (Again)
Just my opinion but plenty of morphs, colours, clutch sizes, ease of keeping, they will make a big return in 2016/17 I think.

Yeah, corns are great- they're as tough as old boots, rarely fast (except for males in summer, & even then only for a month or so), are dustbins when fed, & even feed in winter.

I'd like to see a return to breeding more locales like Carolinas, Okeetees, Abbotts Okeetees, Miamis & Floridas, with less emphasis on the morphs.

Tell you what really do look evil- Fox snakes! Related to corns (they're ratsnakes), they have an overhang above their eyes that gives them an 'I'll kill you!' scowl. Gopher & pine snakes have the same look.

Just looked them up and they look very evil! Most of them on images were small and it looks like a pathetic attempt to be scary because they look adorable really.

when i read all the posts of

my ball wont eat
ball wont breed
its blowing bubbles
its always hiding
retics outgrown its cage
boa tried to eat my face
milk craps on me

i often think of corns, of how i never appreciated them enough when i kept them, they never got ill, always ate, always good to handle, loads of ways to house them, from tub to glass penthouse all the while with those beautiful faces and those big doe eyes.

these days i often think, ah corns! and smile, i wish i had appreciated them more.

I agree - after reading this thread I went and had a look at a couple of Carolina corn hatchlings. Absolutely beautiful, almost nicer than my adored Leopard Snakes for the vividness of colour. I daresay a lot less picky and shy as well. I was very tempted.
