One of the exhibitors at the show had baby corn snakes on display and he let me hold one. I'll have to say it was pretty in a slithery kind of way. Just two weeks old, it was about as thick around as a pencil and not much longer. The nice man who showed me the snakes thought one would make a great present for my son. I asked if they bite, and was surprised when he told me they can. It didn't make me feel better that I was holding the snake in my hands at that moment, but I restrained myself and didn't fling it back in the cage.
