King Snake

Lampropeltis getulus


Profile notes:

King snake is the name for a number of species of the genus Lampropeltis, nonvenomous, egg-laying, constricting snakes of North America which show much variation in color and markings.

 

This common king snake is usually about 3 to 5 ft (90-150 cm) long and black or brown with yellow and white rings or bands that form a chainlike pattern. It eats rodents, birds, and other snakes. It is immune to the venom of the rattlesnake and the copperhead, which it kills by constriction. King snakes are valuable destroyers of rodents.
