Our Kingsnake arrived at Reflection Riding in 1991 and is a resident of Snake Tale Alley.
- A common kingsnake’s claim to fame is is ability to kill and eat other snakes, including venomous species—cottonmouths and rattlesnakes.
- They possess an enzyme that breaks down venom.
- They are naturally immune from pit-viper venom so the bite of a venomous snake has no effect on them.
What to look for:
- Its tail vibrates when frightened, so if the snake is in leaves, it can sound like a rattle.
