    I always thought corn snake musk smelt a bit like off cabbage.

    Depends on the snake, my garter snake would musk when upset, not too bad at all.

    Find a breeding pit, that can get a bit offensive. Sort of rotten egg smell. Can't really describe for being unique.

    My corn and king snake never did musk.

    Different snakes musk smell different.  For example  a Northern water snake smells of dead fish where as a garter snake smells like dead animals. In general however most people will probably describe the foul smell as rotten eggs.

    It smells like rotten eggs and the smell is so strong that you can still smell it after multiple hand washes.
