Milksnakes

Milksnakes

Milksnakes are well known for their beautiful coloration and gentle temperament, although they are often hiding in plain sight. Offer décor for climbing and a basking spot to bring the snake out of hiding during the daytime hours. Over the years these have been captive-bred to produce color morphs, including some of the more common Albino and Apricot. They have also been crossed with other varieties to create beautiful morphs.

Feeding tip: It is always recommended to feed snakes in a container outside of their habitat. This is the best way to help limit any feeding responses from being associated with the habitat. This will also keep any substrate from being ingested while eating. A secure, small plastic container is most commonly used. By keeping this container dark you help ease stress from being moved from their habitat.
