Diet & Nutrition for King / Milk Snakes
King and Milk Snakes are strictly carnivorous, meaning they eat only meat of other animals and prefer small rodents like mice and rats. Feed your snake every 4-5 days for juveniles, or every 7-10 days for once fully grown.
The milk snake, because of its secretive and coy nature, can be often be problem feeder. If the snake is stressed it will not eat, try to give the snake many hiding places in its home to alleviate stress. Feed your snake small frozen mice that have been defrosted.
Frozen food is available from your local Petmania Store. Because of its sensitive nature, it is not displayed on the shop floor, so please ask for assistance.
A bowl of fresh water must always be available at all times. It will be used for drinking and sometimes for bathing. If the snake defecates in it, the bowl must be cleaned and disinfected.
