    King Snake

    The king snake’s jaws are unhinged, allowing it to swallow prey that is larger than its head. They can eat rattlesnakes due to a tolerance to their venom. Potential prey has the best chance of survival if it stays very still, as the king snake is very near sighted.

  • Ball Python

    Ball Python

    Ball pythons are named after their defensive nature to curl up into a ball when frightened. In the wild, these small snakes mostly prey on small mammals, rodents and birds.
