MILK SNAKE

SCIENTIFIC NAME:  Lampropeltis traingulum

HABITAT:  Rocky ledges and hillsides along streams and woodland edges of the Great Plains region.

CONSERVATION STATUS: Least Concern
                                                   

FUN FACT: 

Milk snakes prefer to stay hidden under sun-warmed rocks rather than bask in the open.  Although this species tends to hunt actively for food during the day, they can switch to nocturnal activity during the hottest part of the summer.
