Aren't they Pantherophis emoryi intermontana?

In which case they'd be more correctly "Dwarf Great Plains Ratsnakes"

I've got one - female, 7 years old and about 3 1/2 ft long, bit more stocky than a corn though.

I thought they were now classified as standard emoryi - the intermontanas just being seen as a (slightly) different colour phase rather than an actual subspecies? I may be wrong though!

I Have heard of the Dwarf corn before, there are a few breeders that have them in their breeding groups.

Not something that has ever taken my interest though, i think there about the right size without being dwarfed.

I could understand the point of a dwarf Retic, but corn, why?

Assuming we're talking about intermontana corns - from what I've read/heard they are a naturally occurring smaller species/subspecies, usually only reaching around 4ft or so.

Or is there a dwarf P.G.Guttata as well?
