Kingsnake Common behavior

The Common Kingsnake is generally considered to be a good pet to have by snake lovers.

There are a number of subspecies of the Common Kingsnake, including the Arizona Desert Kingsnake, the Black Kingsnake of Mexico, the Yuma Kingsnake, and the California Kingsnake. They also should not be confused with Mountain Kingsnakes or Mexican Kingsnakes, which are two separate types of snake.

The habitats that it has adapted to are also fairly diverse.

The Kingsnake got its name because of the fact that aggressive and venomous snakes make up part of its diet, including the Rattlesnake, Copperhead and Coral Snakes. The venom is not a concern, since the Common Kingsnake is immune.

One final but interesting note about the Common Kingsnake is its defensive posturing. If it feels threatened, it will hiss and shake the end of its tail (much like a Rattlesnake) before finally lashing out and striking at the aggressor. If it is attacked, the Common Kingsnake will musk its foe in the hopes of discouraging further aggression.
