Corn snakes, like all snakes, play an important ecological role in their environment and should be respected for that, rather than feared or harassed. They help maintain the balance of nature by being both predator and prey, and are among those snakes most often considered helpful to humans because they hunt rodents. They likely got their name from the resemblance of its belly markings to kernels of maize or Indian corn.
