These are babies feeding on pinky mice.
Hypomelanistic Pueblan Milksnakes are lacking some of the black pigment which makes the black look a purplish color on these.
Milksnakes are a type of kingsnake from the Lampropeltis triangulum species. With their red, black and white banding they are mimicking the venomous Coral snake. They get the name “milksnake” from an old wives tail which states that these snakes used to “steal” the milk of cows by attaching to the cows utters. Milksnakes will breed from March through August and have from 4-15 eggs. Proper temperature for these are 80-82 degrees with a hot spot of 84-86 degrees.
