Snakes in Alaska

    Hello All,
    We are new to corn snakes and live in a bush community in Alaska. I have had snakes in the distant past but have never purchased one from a breeder or pet store. My 4 yo son has shown an interest that I would like to encourage with exposure... no field handling here. While reluctant to encourage pet store purchases (knowing the pitfalls), based on a short stay in Anchorage, we are motivated to consider a pet store snake. Shipping to the bush only adds more challenges. Have found some interesting looking snakes locally and welcome your educated opinions on what you all think I might be looking at. I realize purchasing from a breeder would give me more control over adult appearance. I am drawn more strongly to some normals and okeetee snakes. These first three pictures are a reddish hatching that is vigorous and confident.

    Aside from the red, the larger dark snake is in the last picture.
