Pueblan Milk Snake - Beauty on display - The reptile world is rich with several species of snake. There seems to be every kind of snake available: from large to small, fat to skinny, and poisonous to non-poisonous.

With this wide variety comes a fascination with snakes, how they live, what they eat, and whether or not they can be successfully kept in captivity. The snake hobbyist may desire to keep and observe a species as beautiful as the multi-colored Coral snake. However the Coral snake is extremely poisonous and contains one of the most potent venom in the world.

Obviously many implications arise when one chooses to hold a poisonous snake, such as the Coral, in captivity. There is not only the danger of getting bitten by one of these snakes, but there are also complications in care and storage that come into play. Therefore, very often this species cannot be effectively kept in captivity.

Much to the relief of hobbyists everywhere, there is an alternative. The Pueblan Milk snake is equally as beautiful and is non-venomous. In addition, they are extremely easy to care for. These traits make them one of the most sought after species in the snake world. The Milk snake, while a nervous species, rarely bites. It can live an average of 12 years in captivity; although it has also been reported that they can live up to 20 years. Their small length (4 feet) makes them an excellent size for a 20 gallon aquarium, and their docile nature, makes them easy to handle.

With proper temperature and lighting, water, sustenance (usually breeder mice or rats), and suitable environment (with a hiding place and appropriate bedding for the bottom of the cage), the Pueblan Milk snake can live a long and healthy life, and be a beautiful addition to your animal brood.

Running a wildlife removal business in the state of Florida gives me the chance to see all kinds of interesting snakes! Florida has about 45 species of snake, and I've seen 29 of them so far. I've always got my eye out for new species, and I love spotting rare snakes in Florida. I also have a thing for venomous snakes - they're not too common in FL, so I always enjoy the chance to see a poisonous serpent. I really like snakes, and I've never hurt or killed one. They're an important part of the ecosystem, and often persecuted. Still, if you don't want snakes in your house or on your property, and judging from the number of phone calls I receive regarding snake problems, you don't, then give me or a local snake expert in your area a call, and we can remove the snakes from your property for you. I use many snake control methods - from snake traps, to snake repellents, to habitat modification, but most of all, good old-fashioned capture and removal.
