Not dissmissing your findings, at least not without seeing the snakes first. Even then it might be hard to tell for sure. As far as snakes that I have observed, the black rats came from Ohio, Oklahoma, and northern Louisiana, where cornsnakes don't occur. The ones from Ohio especially had a lot of red. I remember one that had its entire belly red not counting the chin. I remember some cornsnakes out of florida having a lot of dark pigment, but the pattern itself looked normal for a corn. It does seem however , I heard years ago about a snake being caught near West Palm Beach Florida back in the 70s that appeared to be a cross between a corn and a yellow rat. It was brought into a pet store that a friend worked. If that can happen in the wild, it should be able to happen with a corn and a black as well. Hope this helps.
