Images used for reference only, actual specimins may differ in size and appearance.

The Mexican Milk Snake, scientifically known as Lampropeltis triangulum annulata, is a medium-sized colubrid snake species native to the tropical regions of Mexico. Renowned for its bold and beautiful colors, it is often referred to as the "tri-color milk snake" due to its distinctive bands of red, black, and yellow.

With a slender and elongated body, the Mexican Milk Snake typically reaches lengths of 3 to 5 feet, making it a manageable size for snake enthusiasts.

In terms of temperament, the Mexican Milk Snake is generally docile and tolerant of handling, making it an ideal choice for snake enthusiasts of all experience levels. However, it is important to note that individual temperaments may vary, and proper handling techniques should always be observed to ensure the snake's well-being.

In their natural habitat, Mexican Milk Snakes can be found in a variety of environments, including tropical forests and grasslands. They are primarily terrestrial but are capable climbers, utilizing their slender bodies and smooth scales to explore their surroundings. Providing a suitable enclosure with hiding spots, climbing branches, and appropriate temperature gradients is crucial for their comfort and overall health in captivity.

As carnivorous snakes, Mexican Milk Snakes feed on a diet of appropriately-sized prey, such as mice, rats, and other small rodents. They are constrictors, using their muscular bodies to coil around their prey and subdue it before swallowing it whole.
