Kingsnake California Health Information

Caring for the California Kingsnake in captivity is much like caring for the Corn Snake. Adults can be housed in a 20-gallon-long terrarium with a secured screen top. There should be a "cool" end and a "warm" end in the aquarium. Keep the cool end's temperature around 75 degrees Fahrenheit and the warm end temperature between 82 - 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Provide a dish of clean water at the cool end for them as well.

California Kingsnakes have ravenous appetites. In the wild, they will eat lizards, mice, rats, and even other snakes. For this reason, these snakes should not be housed together because if they are hungry they may resort to cannibalism. Kingsnakes may not feed in the winter because of hibernation, but not every one will hibernate.

California Kingsnakes will usually reach sexual maturity between two and three years of age. They will normally breed in the spring or summer after they have brumated through the winter at about 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Before breeding, the snakes should be large and healthy. Females will lay one or two clutches per year, usually of six to fifteen eggs each. Some clutches of over 20 eggs have been recorded, but this is rare. Incubate the eggs at 80 - 85 Fahrenheit for 60 - 80 days.
