Common Kingsnake

About Common Kingsnake

The Kingsnake gets its name because they eat other snakes. They also feed on birds, eggs, and other small animals. When they feed on a rattlesnake, they first bite and suffocate them with their coils. When the rattlesnake is worn out the kingsnake swallows him whole.

The female lays 5-20 eggs. Once they hatch the mother shows no interest in the young.
