Kingsnake San Luis Potosi Health Information

Adult San Luis Potosi Kingsnakes can be kept in a 20-gallon-long terrarium (24 x 12 x 12 inch). The substrate can be simple. Newspaper or plastic grass work well, or orchid bark chips or aspen bedding can be used if a natural look is desired. San Luis Potosi Kingsnakes should be maintained at about 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with a warmer spot about 90-95 degrees Fahrenheit. Adults should have a nighttime temperature drop to between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit (18 degrees Celsius). Juveniles should be maintained at about 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Though humidity should remain low, a water bowl should be present in the terrarium. Provide hiding places in both the cooler and warmer parts of the cage.

Most San Luis Potosi Kingsnakes can be maintained on rodents of appropriate size; However, some, particularly wild-caught individuals and neonates, prefer lizards and will refuse mice.

Most San Luis Potosi Kingsnake breeders recommend brumating these snakes at 55 degrees Fahrenheit, with a weak basking light, for about three months. After breeding, a gestation period between 24 and 46 days is average. Provide a nest box filled with damp peat or vermiculite. The average clutch size is 12, though clutches containing between 5 and 19 eggs are common. Infertility is a common problem. The temperature should be maintained between 80 and 83 degrees Fahrenheit. The eggs usually require an incubation period of 54 to 82 days. Many hatchling San Luis Potosi Kingsnakes can be started on pinky mice, though some may require lizards or lizard scented prey. Neonates are usually six to eight inches long.
