Mexican Black Kingsnake Care (Lampropeltis getula nigrita) in Crestwood, KY

mexican black kingsnake

I also have to clean a ton of snakes today and I decide to show off my Mexican Black Kingsnake! Feeding In the wild, these snakes feed primarily on rodents, snakes, eggs, and lizards. The simple solution is to use a heavier ceramic water bowl. Substrate should be newspaper or paper towels easy to clean and is dry at all times, with reptiles do not use cedar or pine shavings they are very toxic to all animals. When the time draws near, only offer water for an hour or two during the morning, then take it away to avoid accidents. A water dish large enough to swim in is also recommended.

Hypo Durango Mountain Kingsnake Lampropeltis mexicana greeri Homozygous for Hypomelanism, a recessive mutation. This mutation lightens, brightens, and reduces black pigmentation. Heating rocks are not recommended, as in captivity, a snake will neglect to move from extremely hot surfaces, thus leading to either minor or severe burns. The females simply deposit the eggs and leave—they provide no parental care from this point forward. We are reptile enthusiasts who believe captive breeding is integral to the future of the market, as it not only helps protect wild herp populations, but is an incredibly rewarding experience that tends to intensify one's passion for these amazing prehistoric creatures. Check back often as we add new animals to the currently available periodically.

These are a Colubrid snake and most adults get between 3-6 foot in length. Too high of humidity levels may lead to upper respiratory infections. Kingsnakes can be cannibalistic snakes, so keeping multiple Kingsnakes in the same enclosure is not recommended.

Extreme High-White Banded California Kingsnake Lampropeltis getula californiae Clean Black and White Banded Cal Kings have long been prized by collectors. Differing from most of their relatives, these snakes are nocturnal to avoid the desert sun; they spend their days hidden in rodent burrows or under debris, and emerge at night to prowl for food. Never use pine or cedar shavings as the aromatic oils can cause irritation and respiratory issues in your snake. Most adults average only 24-30 inches in length, although specimens may achieve 36 inches. The addition of novel scents and textures is always recommended for their well being.

Surprisingly, even though the snake is from Mexico, winters get chilly although not usually below freezing 55 °F. Adults spot solid black color but some young ones usually have lateral yellow or white spots under their chins that normally fade as they become larger. I recommend for most people to use aspen shaving or sani chips for their Mexican Black King. Substrate Substrate should ideally be easy to clean. Eggs should be removed immediately after laying and placed in damp vermiculite for the incubation period of 59 - 68 days at temperatures of 80 - 83 degrees.
