My friend has had no luck with corn snakes. He has owned three already and two have escaped. The third tried to escape but he caught it. They were in a custom made wooden cage and there is no gap for them to escape from. I don't know how they do it. The wooden cage is split in half and he has a corn snake on one side and a leopard gecko on the other. Every once in a while he finds the corn snake hanging out with the leopard gecko...Very Weird.
