How do Black Rat Snakes survive?



  1. 0 Votes

    Black rat snakes live near woodlands close to water. These snakes are harmless to humans and are not poisonous. They are protected by state law, as their species is declining. They can now only be found in the southern half of the Lower Peninsula and even there, their numbers are going down.

    To feed, the black rat snake is a constrictor, suffocating its prey until it no longer is alive. They coil around small animals tightening its grip until the prey can no longer breath. Their diet ranges from mice and rats to other snakes, chipmunks, squirrels, birds, and bird eggs.
