We have two Kingsnakes in our exhibits: one has the dominant colored variation (banded), and the other has the striped recessive color variation (pale yellow with a black stripe that goes all the way down its body).
They are active in the daytime during cooler weather and are active at dawn and dusk during warmer temperatures.
Kingsnakes eat other snakes and are immune to rattlesnake venom!
When threatened, they vibrate their tail creating a sound similar to that of the rattlesnake!
