Corn Snakes at Big Bone Lick? 05/06/12

We went to Big Bone Lick State Park for a short evening hike and found a large snake trying to cross the road. It was not the regular snakes we catch & the girls wondered what type it was. Jason said it was probably a corn snake and was not poisonous.

We looked it up online when we got home and confirmed it was a corn snake. However, the internet does not list Northern KY in the area range for corn snakes?

Since then we've been back to the same park, but in a different area hiking again and found baby corn snakes in the woods.

Here is someone else who is studying the habitat reaches of the corn snake in Kentucky:

  1. Nope. Not a corn snake. That is a Eastern milk snake. Many people have confused these with corn snakes.
