A few weeks ago my daughter caught a baby Eastern Milk Snake. A very pretty little snake, looked just like this:
We decided to try to make it a pet and gave it a nice little terrarium home, but after a few weeks we were never able to get it to eat anything, so we had to let it go.
I contacted a friend who is a snake breeder and he said he's never been able to get this particular species to eat either (at the baby stage). Most of the King Snake Genus eat other snakes or lizards, but we don't have any lizards here in New Hampshire, so I'm guessing these little guys eat Salamanders. Unfortunately we couldn't find any Salamanders, so we never got to test the theory.
It was a very pretty little snake, bright colors and interesting pattern. Hopefully it'll be able to find it's own food.
